Overcoming Rupture and Other Complications
Patients who undergo breast augmentation may, at some point, require a breast implant revision. Breast implants do not last forever, and it is expected that they will eventually need to be replaced. Some patients seek a revision because they are not satisfied with the results of their breast augmentation, while others experience capsular contracture. Whether you have experienced an implant rupture, or if a previous breast augmentation failed to produce the results you desire, Dr. Azita Madjidi can help you achieve long-term satisfaction through breast implant revision performed at her Houston practice. Contact us today to learn more.
Dr. Madjidi is often sought out to correct disappointing results from a previous surgery performed at another practice, or with older generation breast implants. If you are dissatisfied with your breast surgery results, Dr. Madjidi will take careful note of your goals to plan a custom revision surgery. Her expertise and compassion has helped many women achieve satisfaction following an unsuccessful breast augmentation.
Leaking or ruptured breast implants may happen after an injury, such as a fall, is sustained to the chest area. Ruptures may also occur spontaneously. In cases of saline implants, the implant will deflate quickly as the saline solution is dispersed and absorbed by the body. Silicone implants, however, leak more slowly, and will not noticeably deflate. In either case, Dr. Madjidi can perform the necessary surgery to restore your bust line with new implants.
When a breast implant is placed, a protective layer of scar tissue forms around it, creating a capsule. In some cases, for reasons that are not completely understood, this capsule can contract, squeezing the implant and causing it to become misshapen or painful. Correcting capsular contracture usually requires removing the scar tissue and replacing the implant. There are four stages of capsular contracture. First, the implant becomes palpable. Eventually, it becomes visible, resulting in an unnatural appearance. Next, the breast shape becomes firm and deformed. Finally, the breast becomes painful and cold. If you are experiencing symptoms of capsular contracture, please contact us today.
Many patients who are seeking a revision surgery are anxious to finally achieve the results they desire. Dr. Madjidi understands how important it is to provide patients with satisfying results, and she will take ample time to note your goals and concerns. She will carefully tailor a revision treatment that will produce the beautiful, long-lasting results you deserve.
While some breast implants will need replacement at some point, the expert care and precision that marks Dr. Madjidi’s work helps ensure that our patients’ implants retain their size, shape, and integrity for as long as possible. We will take time to educate you about which breast implants will strike the proper balance between longevity and aesthetic value, the best means of placement, and how to protect your implants from damage during physical activities.
Today, all breast implants come with a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. If a premature rupture occurs because of a defect in the implant, the company will pay for the patient to replace them. If you experience a rupture, be sure to bring information including your breast implant brand, serial number, and reference number to your consultation.
If you are in need of breast implant revision, the best way to achieve the results you desire is to choose a proven surgeon with a compassionate and thorough approach. Dr. Madjidi is passionate about helping patients achieve the best possible satisfaction through plastic surgery, and will take every measure to help you experience all the benefits of expertly performed breast augmentation.
