Many women after a breast lifting or augmentation operation using silicone implants would desire a second surgery to correct failures that may have occurred after the first surgery. Sometimes pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuation can have dramatic consequences in the shape and breast size in order to alter the original shape and size.

Also women who wish to change the size of the implant to a bigger or smaller one. Furthermore women whose implant has moved from its normal position, the development of prosthetic capsule and issues concerning the surgical technique and physiological characteristics of the breast as double bubble deformity, implant displacement, not suitable implant location and combinations of the above are reasons for a breast reoperation.

Am I a suitable candidate for a breast reoperation?

Women who have one of the following aesthetic deformities in the breast are candidates for breast reoperation:

  • Implant volume loss, especially in saline implants
  • Silicone leaking from the implant found after an x-ray or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Women who wish to change the size of their breast
  • Women who wish to improve the scars image made to a previous surgical operation
  • Women who experience changes in the shape of the breast
  • Women who have developed a periprosthetic capsule condition
  • Women who have any kind of breast aesthetic deformity caused by wrong positioning of the implant (double babble deformity)
  • Women experiencing breast asymmetries
