More Common Reasons for Breast Implants Revision Plastic Surgery

Breast implant deflation is a common reason why women may need more breast surgery. Breast Implants (saline breast implants or silicone breast implants) may leak and the woman may notice that one or both of her breasts has changed in shape or size. With saline breast implants it usually ultra obvious when they leak. As the saline is absorbed by the body the breast becomes softer and smaller. With a leaking silicone gel breast  implant this may not be noticed as quickly. In most cases, the silicone gel leaks out of the breast implant in the capsule or pocket and is usually self-contained. Most women can tell a subtle change in their shape while others notice nothing at all. There are tests, such as mammogram or MRI, that can help to determine if this has happened or not.

Larger or smaller breasts: After breast augmentation plastic surgery / breast implant plastic surgery - some women decide to go larger or smaller.  Other women may not like the appearance of their breast implants. They feel their implants might be too high or low or give their breasts a distorted shape. Others feel that their breasts may appear too "fake" and not natural. Some may be experiencing unacceptable implant rippling. Ripples can be present in both saline-filled or silicone gel implants. In many cases there are things that can be done to decrease the visibility of rippling. However, in some cases, in may never go completely away.

Breast implant hardening or "encapsulation" is another reason why women seek Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rappaport's breast implant correction or breast implant revision services.
