Breast Augmentation Revision

There are many reasons why women choose implant revision:

  • Unsatisfying Cosmetic Results
    In some cases, a woman may not be happy with her surgical outcome and needs breast implant correction. Other women trade older saline implants for gummy bear breast implants using cohesive silicone gel.

  • Capsular Contracture
    This complication occurs when the tissue that naturally forms around the breast implant begins to tighten and constrict, creating a hardened breast that feels and looks unnatural – breast implant redo surgery in California is the solution.

  • Implant Deflation or Rupture
    Though implant rupture is not very common, it does occur for a small percentage of women. Following your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding breast care is the first step in preventing a rupture.

Saline and silicone breast implants behave differently when they rupture. The effects of a saline implant rupture are immediately obvious, with the sterile saline being harmlessly absorbed into the body. The current generation of silicone gel implants will maintain their shape if torn or ruptured, so regular MRI screenings are needed to detect rupture.

Test drive your new look

Visualize the results that can be achieved from your procedure with computer simulations from the VECTRA 3D imaging system. This advanced technology can help you and your surgeon to determine the best approach for creating the results you want.

Choosing Breast Implant Revision in California

Implant revision surgery is a technically challenging procedure that, in most cases, requires greater surgical skill than the original breast augmentation. Our surgeons employ customized corrective techniques to restore an attractive appearance. You can see their results when you view before & after photos of their breast implant revision patients from Los Angeles and Beverly Hills. It is important that women follow all safety precautions and take proper care of their implants. Women who receive silicone gel implants must follow the FDA guideline related to periodic MRI screening and return to Marina Plastic Surgery for their breast implant revision procedure if a rupture is detected.
