When To Consider Breast Implant Revision:
- Your saline breast implants have deflated or an X-ray or MRI suggests your silicone implant has a shell leak
- If you want to change your implant/breast size
- If you have tightening of the scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture) or your breast implants have shifted in position
- If your breast tissue has changed as a result of skin stretching or weight loss/gain
- Gravity and aging have altered the size and shape of your breasts
- You should have undergone a breast lift with your initial augmentation, but did not
- You are unhappy with the results of previous surgery due to poor implant placement or other aesthetic problems

How Is Breast Implant Revision Performed In Birmingham, MI?
Dr. Ellen will make small incisions in the skin under your breast, or in your armpit, and place your new breast implants under the skin and tissue of the breasts. Scars will be virtually unnoticeable. Breast implant surgery takes about 45 minutes under general anesthetic and can be done on an outpatient basis.
How Long Is Recovery From Breast Implant Revision?
You can expect to be back at work within a week, although you should avoid heavy lifting for about two weeks. You can resume physical activity in two to four weeks. After surgery, you will regain a youthful breast shape with improved symmetry, whether you choose to increase or decrease your breast size.
