The reasons for getting a breast revision
Women decide to have breast augmentation because of many reasons. It can be to improve their self-confidence, to add volume to the breast and to accentuate their natural curves. However, after getting the procedure done, some women may find out that the breast augmentation result they got is not what they were looking for. They may not be happy because of the type of implants used, size or shape of their breasts after the procedure. Some women who have got breast implants want to upgrade the breast augmentation size after having it for many years or they may want to change from silicone to saline implants or vice versa.
Why you may need to get a breast revision
If the breast augmentation procedure has been successful, there is no reason why you should not be happy with it. When you are not happy with the results you got, then it is time to get a breast revision surgery.
What you should expect during the procedure
When you meet your plastic surgeon, you will talk about your concern so that the surgeon can understand the expectations and goals you have from the procedure. The doctor will create a customized treatment to remove or exchange your implants. Depending on what you want to achieve, the surgeon may reposition the implants you already have or use new implants.
After the treatment, you will suffer some swelling, bruising or discomfort. However, such effects can be dealt with using pain medication. After having replaced the breast implants, you should wear a compression garment to make sure that your breasts are healing in a proper manner. The patients can resume their normal activities in a week’s time. You should avoid getting involved into strenuous activities or exercising for a month.
