Breast Implant Revision

Whether you want to revise the results of a previous breast augmentation, or need to have your implants removed or replaced for medical reasons, Dr. Kramer can perform a breast implant revision.

Primary reasons to have a breast implant revision:

  • You desire a change in your implant size or type (silicone/saline)
  • You need to replace/remove an implant due to issues such as rupture, capsular contracture, or symmastia

Changing the Size, Shape, Profile or Type of Your Implants

If you are seeking a breast implant revision for personal reasons, Dr. Kramer will listen carefully to understand what it is you want to accomplish with your surgery.

One of the most common reasons women give for wanting to revise a previous breast augmentation is that they are no longer happy with the size they originally chose. Whether you want to decrease the size of your implants or go bigger, Dr. Kramer will help you to choose an implant size that will provide you with your desired outcome and fit well with your body without looking unnatural or overdone.

As breast implant manufacturers continue to develop new breast implants, several women choose to undergo breast implant revision to take advantage of new implant technologies. For example, newer implants such as cohesive silicone gel (gummy bear) breast implants may encourage women to change out their old implants for a more natural look and feel. Women may also choose to replace their round implants with newer teardrop or anatomically-shaped breast implants.

Breast Implant Removal and Replacement for Medical Reasons

While complications with breast augmentation are rare, if they happen they can be treated with an implant revision. When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Kramer will carefully observe the condition of your breasts to determine the underlying issue. The defective implant(s) will be removed using the same incision location where it was originally inserted. Most women choose to have the implant replaced with a new one, but this is entirely up to you.

In the case of capsular contracture, Dr. Kramer will need to remove the hardened scar tissue that has formed around the breast implant. The implant can then be removed or replaced depending on your preferences.
