If you had a breast augmentation in the past that did not meet your expectations, or if your breast implants are old and showing signs of rupture, you may be a candidate for a revision breast augmentation. However, if you are not having any problems with your breast implants, replacement is not necessary. Breast implants have no expiration date; as long as they remain intact, there is no need for revision.
Patients most often seek out a revision augmentation to improve unsatisfactory results, or to correct common complications, such as:
- Breast implant rupture
- Implant visibility
- Capsular contracture
Some patients who had breast augmentation decades ago may want to take advantage of new options that are available – such as silicone implants, which removed from the American market between 1992 and 2006. Today’s breast implants are more realistic and more varied than ever before.
