When you start hearing a lot about breast revision surgeries, it can really put you off on your decision to get breast implants. But in reality, breast revision surgery has always been common, and not because implants are unsafe. Here is why breast revision is trending now, and why it can be necessary.
What is breast revision anyway?
Breast revision surgery usually refers to breast implants being removed or replaced. Sometimes these surgeries are done due to complications from breast augmentation, but much more frequently they are done simply because a change is needed or wanted in the size and shape of the implants.
Why is breast revision common?
Breast revision surgery is common because breast implants don’t last more than about 10 to 15 years. They aren’t meant to be permanent; and that means that if you get implants in your 20s, you’ll be getting revision surgery in your 30s or 40s. All of those young celebrities from the 90s getting implants in their 20s are now finding themselves needing those implants replaced or removed.
What are the newest trends in breast revision?
When breast revision does become necessary, there are some definite trends that have emerged in the last couple of years. Most women are opting for smaller implants put into place beneath the muscle so that they appear and feel more natural. This is a great option for women who originally had larger implants, leaving them needing to replace volume without sacrificing shape and feel.
