Breast Implant Revision

Why you might consider an Implant Revision

If you are one of the millions of women who have breast implants, here in Marin County, Santa Rosa, the Bay Area and all over the US, you may be wondering when or if you are a good candidate for an implant revision. There are various reasons our patients inquire about an implant revision procedure in our practice.  Medical, esthetic or emotional factors may each play a part in the decision to move forward with a revision. As a Top Plastic Surgeon in the Bay Area, I am always reminding our patients that the skin around the breast, with or without implants, will naturally change with time and gravity. These changes in skin can impact the way your implants both look and feel as well as any structural changes within the implant themselves.


Implant exams are an important part of your routine and long-term health

Even if your implants are in great shape, it is always a good idea to have professional examination from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Mohebali. Much like getting a regular physical or breast exam, your breast implants should be evaluated as a routine part of your health schedule every year. If you feel like you have damaged your implants, or just think that they don’t quite look and feel like they used to, a quick revision can repair or enhance your previous breast augmentation. Even if your older implant procedures have been properly performed, and maintain a good structure, you still may need an revision or implant replacement.


Revision vs. Replacement

Implants aren’t permanent and keeping them modern and up to date will keep your body at lower risk for health scares (not to mention looking great as well). While breast implant revision is typically just a precaution, in many cases, it may lead to the necessity of replacing the implants themselves. If we feel like this is the best path for you to take, we will give you a thorough assessment and every option we have available to work with you to find the best solution for your particular body.  A breast revision and implant replacement, using the newest generation of implants, is a safe and effective way to keep your body in its best condition as well as offer a more youthful and refreshed look.


Your specialized treatment plan

Using the latest medical technology to ensure a long shelf life and good aesthetics for your new implants, our board certified surgeon can customize your breast implant replacement procedure specific to your special needs and goals, as part of your breast implant revision. Recovery times for these procedures may vary, but typically last anywhere from 2-6 weeks, depending on the person and circumstances. Please feel free to call our practice anytime to schedule a consultation.
