Achieve Proper Implant Correction to Get the Look You Desire

Are you unhappy, or having complications with your breast implants? Perhaps you want to alter your current implant material to something safer! In any case, a revision implant surgery can help you towards your aesthetic goals.

What Is Breast Implant Revision Surgery?

Breast implant surgery is a type of breast augmentation that utilises implants filled with either silicone or saline to achieve augmentation in the tissue around the chest. Typically called “a boob job”, breast implant surgery is an excellent solution for patients who are unhappy with the current size or shape of their bust. However, not every patient will achieve their desired results the first time. Around 10 – 20% of women will have to undergo a secondary implant surgery to achieve further correction or to fix an issue that arose with the current set.

A breast implant correction in Sydney is performed only on patients who have previously had implants inserted. As the name suggests, the procedure is intended to help fix issues that may arise with the implants. It may also be performed on patients who want to exchange, remove or alter their current implants. In many cases, patients may have developed capsular contracture, which causes difficulties with the implant.


How a Revision Breast Surgery Can Help

Breast implant revision surgery is primarily reserved to treat the aesthetic or medical issues a patient may be experiencing with their current implants. When a revision breast surgery is performed by an accredited cosmetic surgeon in Australia, 

it can help correct one or more of the following issues:
  • Implant shifting out of place
  • Sagging of the breast
  • Visible rippling or wrinkling
  • Synmastia
  • Stretching or drooping of the breast
  • Infection
  • Nipple asymmetry
  • Bottoming out
  • Ruptures or leakage

Scheduling a Revision Implant Surgery

In Australia, the TGA is responsible for approving all types of medical instruments and devices, such as implants. You should never have any type of surgery that uses subpar or improper materials, as this can greatly increase your risk for complications down the line. Additionally, it’s important to remember that even when your implant surgery is performed by a trustworthy surgeon, the body may reject the implant. Similarly, changes in weight or body structure can cause the implants to shift out of place or leave you with less than desirable results. Breast implant revision in Sydney is also very popular among patients who want to exchange their current implants for a different size, remove them or upgrade to newer material.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I Need a Breast Revision Surgery?
For some patients, secondary implant surgery is requested for purely aesthetic reasons. Many patients with older implants come back years later to have them replaced with newer, more durable versions. Others may have fluctuations in weight that can cause them to want to reduce (or increase) the size of their implants to better suit their new figure. In cases like this, the procedure is considered purely elective and not necessary for the patient’s health.

However, some patients may experience side effects, complications, poor results or other medical reasons that may require a corrective breast surgery.

What is the Difference Between Breast Implant Removal and Revision?
Another common reason for a patient to have corrective breast surgery is if they are having their implants removed. Typically, a breast implant revision surgery refers to a surgery where an exchange is done to replace the original implant, whether it has ruptured, shifted, distorted in shape or simply doesn’t suit the patient anymore. However, in some cases, a patient may not wish to have their implants replaced. In cases like this, a breast implant revision will work to reshape the breast as best as possible to regain a natural-looking shape without the implant. Additionally, a breast implant removal can be performed for patients whose aesthetic needs have changed, however, some patients may suffer residual stretch marks or require additional contouring procedures to achieve an aesthetically pleasing result.
I Want to Change My Implant Size – What Do I Do?
Breast augmentation surgery is considered a permanent procedure meaning that, unless further surgery is performed, the implants will remain in the body and the results should not fluctuate greatly. Unlike non-invasive procedures that often require repeat appointments, cosmetic surgery has long-lasting results. However, a patient’s needs may change or they may desire to lose weight, causing their current breast shape to look unnatural or disproportionate to their new figure. Thankfully, exchanging a breast implant is a fairly straightforward procedure and it can often be performed by your original surgeon to ensure the best possible results. Are you considering reducing or increasing the current ccs of your breast implants? Refine Cosmetic Clinic offers a free initial consultation with our experienced Consultant, so you can talk to an expert to determine the best course of action to achieve your desired results.
How Much Will a Revision Breast Surgery Cost?
Procedures like breast implant revision surgery in Sydney are unique surgeries that have to be carefully customised to suit each individual patient’s unique concerns. As such, it can be difficult to provide a quote for corrective procedures like implant revision without first assessing the status of the current implants and why the revision is required. It is important to remember that as this is a much more delicate procedure, it may often cost more than your first surgery. A skilled professional with special training and experience should be consulted to determine if a breast implant revision can be performed. At Refine Clinic, your first consultation with our experienced Consultant is always free!
Should I Upgrade My Implants?
Contrary to popular belief, it is not absolutely necessary to have implants replaced. For some patients, this may be a desirable option if their aesthetic needs change over time or they find they want to further augment their bust after their first surgery. Some patients may decide to make the switch between saline or silicone, which will require a revision breast implant surgery. Some women in Sydney also opt to have them replaced with newer implants after 10 – 20 years as the potential for rupture can be greater after this time. However, if you are happy with your implants and are currently not experiencing any issues, there is no immediate need to undergo a revision implant surgery.
What Is the Procedure Like?
The exact approach your surgeon takes to perform a revision breast surgery will be customised in such a way that the final result looks natural. Whenever possible, your surgeon will follow along the incisions of the original implant surgery to reduce scarring. In some cases, the implants will be removed first and then replaced with new ones at a later date. This can help to prep the area for the implant to help achieve healing and stabilisation before the final placement is performed. Furthermore, some procedures may benefit from changing the placement of the procedure entirely, such as underneath the pectoral wall (or vice versa). Our surgeons will discuss what can be expected during a breast implant revision surgery in Bondi.
How Long With a Revision Breast Implant Surgery Take to Heal?
Generally speaking, the recovery for a revision breast surgery will be similar to the first time around. This, of course, will depend on the reason for the replacement and whether any other procedures, such as breast lift or corrective procedures, were also performed. If the implants were removed entirely, the healing process may be slightly expedited. On the other hand, if you have opted to increase the size of your implants or change the material from saline to silicone, it may take a bit longer. Most patients will start to see a reduction in swelling, bruising and redness within the first two weeks after surgery.
