What is the purpose of breast implant revision?

It’s natural for your breast implants and the breast tissue that overlies them to change over time, adversely affecting the appearance of your bust. Breast augmentation is a significant and deeply personal decision, and it is equally disappointing if they fail to live up to your hopes or if the implants prove faulty.

A revision by Dr. Jindal, a highly-skilled plastic surgeon, can make the difference between feeling like you are just managing your breast implants and being thrilled with your results.

Who can benefit from breast implant revision?

Breast implants have a long lifespan of 10-20 years, but even the best implants need a revision eventually. This procedure might be ideal if you:

  • Want to change from one style of implant to another
  • Have concerns about implant rupture
  • Have capsular contracture pain
  • Want to change the size or shape of your breasts
  • Are a nonsmoker at a stable weight

If you are involved in an accident, your implants may get damaged. A revision can restore your silhouette.

What can I expect during breast implant revision?

Before your revision surgery, Dr. Jindal discusses your aesthetic goals, previous surgeries, medical conditions, and any medications you take. He examines your breast implants, reviews your options and any potential risks, and may take photographs.

Be candid about your desired outcomes and lifestyle; Dr. Jindal can adapt your surgery for the best results. After you get sedated, he makes a small incision and revises the breast implant. He closes the incision and applies gauze dressings or bandages as you begin healing.

Dr. Jindal ensures you have detailed instructions for your post-surgery care and schedules follow-up appointments. You can expect some pain and swelling, but this diminishes over time.

Patience and gentleness are key; allow your body 6-12 months to feel “normal.” As time passes, and you follow Dr. Jindal’s instructions, sensation returns, scars fade, and your perfected implants become natural.
