Breast implant augmentation can create the fuller breasts you desire, but the results are not always what patients were expecting. Depending on who performed your procedure and when, you may need breast implant revision surgery to achieve the desired result. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is a highly sought-after plastic surgeon who offers breast revision plastic surgery at Back Bay Plastic Surgery in Boston, MA.
There are several reasons a patient may seek breast implant surgery correction. It is important that patients with breast implants understand that these devices are not meant to last a lifetime – most implants should be replaced every 10-15 years or if they rupture. However, beyond normal replacement, there are patients who are unhappy with their breast implants and seek a revision surgery. Some of the reasons include:
- Capsular contracture complications
- Unnatural appearance or odd shape
- Breast pain
- Breast size – too large or too small
- Asymmetry or symmastia
- Implant bottoming out or rippling
Whatever the reason a patient is unhappy with their breast implants, revision surgery can correct the issue. Dr. Del Vecchio has over 30 years of experience creating beautiful results for his patients with breast implants or augmentation.
Breast Surgery Correction
With any cosmetic breast surgery, revision is a possibility if the patient is unsatisfied with the results. If the problem is with the implants, they can be removed or replaced with other implants. If the patient does not want new implants but wants to retain their breast volume, Dr. Del Vecchio offers breast implant revision surgery with fat transfer. In this breast implant correction procedure, the implants are removed, and fat transfer augmentation is performed to replace the volume lost with implant removal. Dr. Del Vecchio is a leader in fat transfer techniques, creating beautiful, lasting results for both breast augmentation and BBL procedures.
