Treating surgical errors after breast augmentation
In some cases, your surgery may have been performed with incorrect or faulty techniques – it does happen. A surgeon who is rushed or takes an “assembly line” approach to the surgery may have performed your surgery wrongly and created a result that is very disappointing.
In other cases, the surgery was performed correctly, but your breasts are smaller or larger than you expected. Whatever the reason, you can trust Dr. Chamata to resolve the problem and use the most advanced surgical techniques to create the look you originally envisioned.
Breast revision to replace older implants
Breast implants do not last forever, and with time, they will need to be replaced. In most cases, modern implants last, and if you have no problems, there is no need to replace them. However, older implants could rupture, lead to hardened breasts (capsular contracture), or you may have changed your aesthetic ideas and would like to return to your natural breast size. Whatever your wishes, you can be confident that breast revision surgery performed by Dr. Chamata will reflect your personal aesthetic vision and be performed to resolve any issue related to older implants.
What is the surgical procedure and recovery time?
Your breast revision will be similar to your primary surgery, with incisions placed in the same location, and typically you can expect a similar amount of time to recover. If you choose to, you can undergo a breast lift in the same surgery if you had larger implants that have stretched your skin and led to your breasts being located lower on your chest. Every surgery is 100 percent customized to match your unique condition.
Implant rupture and implant replacement
Breast implants are guaranteed. If a rupture occurs in a saline implant, it is obvious, as the saline solution leaks out, leaving one breast deflated. With silicone implants, it may be less obvious, as the silicone gel may be leaking but still be contained within the surgical pocket. It is advised that women with silicone implants undergo a regular MRI to ensure the implants are in good condition.
If a rupture has occurred, the manufacturer may pay for some of the costs of replacement implants, including some of the costs associated with anesthesia and the facility. We can help you to find out what your options if you have suffered an implant rupture.
