Breast implants can give you the shape and fullness for your breasts that you did not receive from your genetics. However, there are circumstances where implants will need to be removed or replaced. Whether you are unhappy with the appearance of your breast implants or you are experiencing a complication, come see us at London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring. We offer breast implant revision surgery performed by our world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio.
Breast implants are safe and effective for augmentation and mammoplasty. Millions of implants have been used over decades all over the world without problems. The main issue with breast implants is they are not meant to be lifetime devices. If an individual has breast augmentation with implants in their twenties, it is likely they will need to have those implants replaced or removed at least once in their lifetime.
Reasons for Breast Implant Revisions
There are several reasons a patient may want breast implants removed or replaced. Implants can last 10 or more years, but some may need to be removed sooner. Some of the reasons for breast implant revision surgery include:
- Leaking or ruptured implant
- Capsular contracture
- Implants look or feel unnatural
- Breast asymmetry or uneven appearance
At London BBL Surgery and Body Contouring, Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio is our world-renowned breast plastic surgeon. He has spent decades reshaping breasts from patients all over the world. If you are experiencing complications with your implants or you are unhappy with the aesthetic results, Dr. Del Vecchio can assist in revising your breast surgery.
Every breast implant revision surgery is customized for the patient. Some patients want the implants removed permanently and may want a breast lift to reshape their natural breast tissue. Other patients want new implants inserted, possibly larger, smaller or differently shaped than the previous implants. Dr. Del Vecchio also offers breast fat transfer or composite augmentation to replace removed implants.
