When Should I Revise My Breast Implants?

By in Breast Procedures  » 

While breast implants provide long lasting results for patients, it is important to know when to have them looked at for potential revision. With all of the studies currently and historically performed on breast implants, they continue to improve in technology and quality in addition, time and the natural aging process can take a toll after a number of years and you may want to look at a revision or even changing the shape and style of your look.

Why Should I have My Implants Checked?

Time

After several years, your body is bound to age and experience some changes. One of the most common concerns is that a patient’s skin has lost elasticity and the implants have begun to droop downward. This can be fixed by performing a breast implant revision or breast lift.

Safety

Depending on when you got your implants, it is important to stay on top of any medical research findings or recalls that come out on the implants you have or similar implants. Over the years, we have found out that saline implants may be harmful to the body if punctured.

Technology

If it has been almost ten years since you had your breast surgery, it’s safe to say that there have probably been some major improvements in the technology of breast implants. Breast implants are now safer and more natural looking than ever with the addition of gummy bear implants and more cohesive silicone gel.

If it has been ten years since your procedure and you feel like your implants may need some adjusting, call Dr. Ellen’s office today to schedule a consultation. We would be happy to speak with you about your revision options.
