Some of the specific reasons for seeking revision breast surgery include a desire to change the implant size or type, implant deflation, implant malposition, tightening of the scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture), or double-bubble deformity.
If a significant amount of time has elapsed since your primary surgery, your natural breast shape and skin quality may be different. These differences may require a lifting procedure in addition to the revision. You also may be a candidate for the use of a cellular dermal matrix, the most up-to-date advancement in breast implant revision surgery.
