Look and feel your best again.

In general, most women who have had breast implant surgery are happy with the results of their breast augmentation for many years. However, breast implants are medical devices that may eventually need to be replaced. Those who are unhappy with their original breast procedure may need a second surgery to achieve the desired results. 

Breast implant revision is a surgical procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to improve a previous breast augmentation procedure or reconstruction. A revision may be needed if the implants have ruptured or the patient has experienced capsular contracture, a condition whereby the scar tissue that forms around the implant becomes unusually hard and tight. In other cases, patients want to improve their bustline with a breast lift and choose to replace their implants at the same time.  

For women who no longer wish to have implants, Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons may perform a specialized surgical procedure known as an en bloc capsulectomy. With this procedure, the implant and scar tissue capsule are carefully removed in one piece. In some cases, just the implant is removed.

The best way to know if a breast implant revision is right for you is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss your condition, your desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have. Your Crystal Clinic doctor will also take time with you to review your medical history. 

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Please be assured that scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
