Did you know that breast implants have a warranty?
Breast implants don’t last forever, in fact many breast implants have 10 year warranties. So when you need to have your breast implant removed for any reason, this procedure is called a breast revision.
Johana Rodriguez is one of my patients that needed a breast revision procedure.
Johana Rodriguez is one of the estimated 400,000 women to receive the now banned PIP implants reported to be at risk of having a high rupture risk. In fact, a Yahoo News publication on 17 April 2012 reported a study led by UK surgeons that 1 in 3 PIP implants may rupture and due to the uncertainty of the silicone gel used in the implant may cause the need to have these implants removed immediately.
Johana was in pain and she came to our office wanting help and comfort. You can learn more about this story by watching the video below.
There are a number of other reasons why women decide they want a breast revision. Here are some common reasons:
1. Wanting bigger implants.
According to FDA statistics, switching to a larger size implant is in fact estimated to account for approximately 37% of all breast revision surgeries in the United States.
2. Capsular Contracture.
3. Desiring a more natural look and feel.
Switching implants or considering the use of fat to provide a more natural look and feel.
Great Communication Can Minimize Unrealistic Expectations
It’s critical for me as a plastic surgeon to establish a clear line of communication to manage expectations and deliver breast revision patient satisfaction. As you can imagine, a breast revision procedure discussion is different from the one you received when you decided to move forward and receive breast implants.
Our consultation is a process. It’s a discussion about your safety, goals, and our desire and ability to best determine how my staff and I can help you achieve satisfaction and happiness with your breast revision outcome.
