All of our bodies heal and age differently, and that can present a challenge in some women with breast augmentation. Issues that affect your implants, from excess scar tissue to droopiness in your chest, can leave you decreasingly happy with your results.
That’s why, in addition to breast augmentation, Linda Swanson, MD, also offers breast revisions. With these personalized procedures, Dr. Swanson can address any issues that develop over the years so you can continue to enjoy the results of your implants.
If you’ve noticed any unwelcome changes in your chest, visit either of our offices in Torrance and Los Alamitos, California, so Dr. Swanson can talk you through your breast revision options.
To help you get a better handle on what this type of procedure can do for you, let’s look at a few common issues that breast revision can address.
Scar tissue formation
While the scar tissue that your body naturally develops around your implant can be a help — holding your implant in place — it can also create challenges. If your body develops too much scar tissue, it might become visible, affect your implant itself, or even lead to potentially painful capsular contracture.
If excess scar tissue creates an issue for your chest, Dr. Swanson can use a breast revision to remove it.
Saline implant deflation
In some cases, scar tissue formation can squeeze saline implants, causing them to deflate. That leaves you with a less voluminous, proportional chest.
Dr. Swanson can perform an implant replacement as part of your breast revision to restore your results from your original breast augmentation.
Natural breast tissue droop
Implants or no, it’s normal for a woman’s breast tissue to see increased sag through the years. As our bodies lose collagen and respond to gravity, our chest tissue suffers. This can leave you with sagging implants and, in some cases, even with visible breast tissue drooping over the implant.
Fortunately, by including a breast lift in your revision, Dr. Swanson can reverse this problem, tightening the tissue on your chest and repositioning your implants to their ideal location.
Scar tissue can put pressure on your implants, causing them to harden over time. If you want to restore softness to your breasts, Dr. Swanson can either:
- Remove your implants and perform a breast lift
- Remove your implants and replace them with new ones
In other words, you have options.
If you’re dissatisfied with your breasts for any reason, don’t hesitate to call our office nearest to you or book a visit online today. Dr. Swanson can help you understand your options and choose the right one for your ideal chest.
