If you’ve had a breast augmentation, your breast implants will eventually need to be removed or replaced. Dr. R. M. Bonnor M.D., F.A.C.S. of Texas Surgical Arts in Katy, TX performs breast implant revision surgery for both medical and personal reasons.
Some women may experience complications from a previous breast augmentation and need to remove or replace the existing breast implants. Dr. R. M. Bonnor will be able to help determine specific problems, including rupture, capsular contracture, or leakage. While these particular problems are rare, it is important to realize that breast implants are not meant to last forever and will need to be replaced at some point to avoid any problems.
Women also choose to undergo a breast implant revision for personal reasons, such as to change the size of their breast implants to maintain their appearance as they get older, or to switch from saline to silicone or vice versa. The incisions from your previous surgery can often be used for your revision in order to prevent further scarring. Whatever your reason for undergoing breast revision surgery, Dr. R. M. Bonnor will help guide you through your various options to safely achieve your desired outcome.
