The most common reason that women visit Board Certified Indianapolis Plastic Surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata for Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery is to change the implant size, which is not really a surgical complication but a correction.
Here are three reasons that patients give for wanting to remove or replace their implants:
- Implant Change Reason No. 1: Some women regret that they did not choose a larger size in the beginning and want to further enhance their volume.
- Implant Change Reason No. 2: Some women have had breast augmentation with implants that are too large for their bodies and are at risk of sagging and stretching of their skin and breast tissue.
- Implant Change Reason No. 3: The choice of an over-sized breast implant may have been the result of ill-advised recommendations from friends or even the patient's plastic surgeon.
Dr. Fata will use a sophisticated set of measurements designed to select a range of implant sizes that will fit your body, and he will use this approach when evaluating you for a change in implant size. He will also discuss the differences between Saline and Silicone Breast Implants. If you have had an implant that was too large and stretched out your tissues, a breast lift (or mastopexy) may be necessary to get the best results.
If you have had a breast augmentation and feel less than satisfied with the results, please call Renaissance Plastic Surgery at 317-575-9152 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Fata.
