Who is a good candidate?
You are a good candidate for breast revision in Beverly Hills if you are unhappy with the outcome of your initial breast augmentation procedure for any reason. You may be dissatisfied with the size or shape of your implants, or you may be concerned about a complication such as malposition, rupture, or rippling. As with any surgery, clients should be at a healthy, stable weight for their frame and free from any uncontrolled medical issues. They should be non-smokers of sound mind and body who are realistic and positive in their outlook and who are willing to follow the doctor’s instructions before and after surgery.
This is an immune response that involves the hardening of the scar tissue surrounding the implants. It can cause cosmetic distortion along with discomfort.
Although rare, both saline and silicone implants can rupture. With saline, it will be immediately obvious that the implants have deflated, whereas, with silicone, the patient will need to undergo an ultrasound or MRI.
Rippling occurs when the edges of the implants can be seen through the skin, often around the sides of the breasts. This happens commonly when the patient has a limited supply of breast tissue to conceal the devices.
Implant malposition occurs when the implants migrate from their correct location.
This occurs when the implants are situated too close together, and the skin between them has drifted upwards from the chest wall, forming a “uniboob” instead of two distinct breast mounds.
Double bubble is a contour deformity that occurs when the breast implants fall below the pre-augmentation inframammary crease.
When a woman desires to swap out her implants for new ones, it is called implant exchange.
In some cases, a woman may wish to return to a more natural aesthetic, or has encountered complications that demand complete removal of the implants.
