Some women prefer to have their breast implants exchanged for different-sized implants to go for a larger or smaller look. Women often change their volume preferences as they leave their twenties. Other women prefer to have their saline implants exchanged for now available silicone gel implants or the new highly cohesive “gummy bear” breast implants.

Breast implant removal with a simultaneous breast lift is becoming very popular with patients that desire implant removal. The fat transfer technique with a breast lift is an alternative to breast augmentation for some women who don’t want a dramatic increase in size but desire more breast fullness.

Breast augmentation, or breast implant surgery, remains the most popular cosmetic procedure in America, according to statistics compiled by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Unfortunately, this also means more and more women require breast implant revision. 

Real Patient

Dr. Lampert’s Approach

Dr. Lampert puts patient safety and satisfaction as his top priorities. In order to do this, he sees only a select few rather than a high volume of patients. To these individuals, he applies the same delicacy and meticulous precision as he would offer to any family member or loved one. In place of aggressive sales tactics, Dr. Lampert uses the tools of patient education and information, empowering others to make their most authentic choices. In order to fulfill his ongoing commitment to maintaining the highest standards of patient safety, Dr. Lampert created his own state-of-the-art Ambulatory Surgery Center, Miami Surgery, LLC, a facility that houses among the most cutting-edge technology and equipment in the industry. Unlike almost every other plastic surgery operating room in South Florida, Miami Surgery, LLC is Federally Certified by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA), the same agency that licenses all of the best hospitals in the state of Florida.

Miami Surgery, LLC is one of only three other AHCA-certified ASCs in Miami-Dade County dedicated to plastic surgery and operated by only Board Certified Plastic Surgeons (American Board of Plastic Surgery) and Board Certified Anesthesiologists. Patients and their families can remain confident that Dr. Lampert’s facility meets and exceeds the same operating standards as the ambulatory surgery centers found in world-class hospitals.

Breast Implant Issues

Breast Implant Issues

Unfortunately, some women naturally develop conditions that cannot be predicted or prevented. When this is the case, Dr. Lampert finds that revision surgery is usually indicated.

Capsular Contracture

Capsular Contracture

After going through breast augmentation surgery, it is very distressing to find that one or both implants are becoming hard, poorly positioned, unsightly and painful. This is a condition called capsular contracture, a condition that affects over 25% of all breast implant patients.

The Lifespan of Breast Implants

Many consider breast implants to have a “lifespan” of about 10 to 15 years. Most women do not experience any major complications or unwanted cosmetic changes regarding their breast implants initially. Time and conditions such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and any significant weight fluctuations can cause changes to the breast tissue and position of the implants in relation to the breasts. This can create an undesirable change in the cosmetic appearance of the breasts.
Some of the cosmetic breast augmentation problems that can develop are:

  • Nipple asymmetry
  • Rippling over the implant
  • Loss of sensation
  • Unnatural feel to the implants
  • Implants too large
  • Implants too small
  • Wrong type of implant -- desire to switch to a different type of implant

Do You Need Breast Implant Revision?

Revision surgery is used to correct a number of problems connected with breast augmentation. It is estimated that early breast revision surgery will be desired by 20% of all breast augmentation patients. Some complications that require breast revision surgery are:

  • Ruptured implants
  • Symmastia—the appearance that the breasts fuse together in the middle
  • Poorly positioned implants or breast droop that has not been addressed
  • Visible rippling over the implant
  • Capsular contracture or tight scars around the implant
  • Muscle flex deformity

In some women, complications can occur, which makes revision surgery a necessity. Ruptured implants always need to be removed. Capsular contracture problems can sometimes be relaxed using oral medication. When this fails, surgery is necessary to relieve the pressure of the tight capsule on the constricted breast. Typically, the final result of the primary breast augmentation will take at least 6 months to settle in.

During this time, deep scars soften, and breast implants typically drop and “fluff” for a softer and more natural look. After time, however, it may become obvious that the hoped-for result has not been achieved. Miami cosmetic breast surgery specialist Dr. Joshua Lampert finds that women who try to simply accept their disappointing results are never able to fully enjoy their new image. In this case, breast revision surgery should be considered to avoid years of regret and frustration.
