Breast Augmentation Revision in Louisville: Is It for Me?

Revision breast augmentation, also called secondary breast augmentation, is performed for a variety of reasons. In many cases, women simply wish they had chosen a different implant size, shape or type (silicone vs. saline, textured vs. smooth). In other instances, implants must be adjusted, removed or replaced due to complications such as implant rupture, capsular contracture or double bubble. Some women simply change their minds and wish to have their implants removed completely, while others find that the passage of time and the natural aging process have altered the appearance of their breasts to the extent that a new surgery is needed to attain the look they prefer.

Goals of Surgery

The aim of breast revision surgery is to help women who have undergone a previous breast augmentation procedure achieve a breast appearance that is more consistent with their ideal look.
