Women seek breast augmentation for a variety of personal reasons. Women also seek breast implant removal or replacement for number of reasons. Some women note dissatisfaction with breast changes that have occurred following pregnancy, menopause, general aging or weight loss, and may desire a different breast size or shape. Other common reasons for revision may include formation of capsular contracture, implant rupture, or desire for a different type of implant material than what was originally placed.
You have many options including removing the implants altogether, downsizing or upsizing your implants, or exchanging implants from saline to silicone. These options may also be performed with or without a concurrent breast lifting procedure.
A thorough breast examination and consultation with Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David S. Motoki, M.D. is the first step towards deciding what option is best for you!
