Breast implants are FDA-approved and widely tested for safety, so serious problems are extremely rare. However, you might want or need breast revision for many reasons. This procedure corrects problems or improves the appearance of your breasts after an earlier breast augmentation.
What is Breast Revision?
Breast implants can occasionally develop problems that affect how they look or feel. In some cases, women feel dissatisfied with a previous surgeon’s work. Even if you are generally happy with your breasts, they should be replaced every ten to twenty years. Breast revision is a procedure that removes and replaces breast implants. You may choose this procedure for various reasons, or it may become necessary if your implant develops a problem.
