There are times when the results of breast surgery are not what the patient desired and she might want to undergo a revision procedure. Some of the cosmetic reasons a person might want a revision include:
To alleviate the need for breast revision surgery, patients should consider the size and type of implant prior to the initial surgery. They should examine their lifestyle and make sure their implant choices match. Patients need to perform adequate research to learn about any risks and the possible need for further procedures. Also, implants do not last forever so they will likely need to replace their implants. Some implant warranties cover a 10-year span while certain implant manufacturers such as Allergan and Mentor offer limited lifetime replacement warranties. Planning ahead when having breast augmentation surgery can help prevent the need for any type of revision surgery in the patient’s future.
