While most patients enjoy the results of their first breast surgery, this is not the case for all. At times, cosmetic breast surgery patients can experience complications, or may simply no longer enjoy their new look.

Breast revision patients at Raj Plastic Surgery have access to Dr. Raj, a highly trained and knowledgeable cosmetic and plastic surgeon. He has the experience and skill necessary to help you look and feel your best. Ahead, learn how he can use breast revision surgery to create the results you desire.
How the Breasts Change After Implants
After you have a breast augmentation, you will likely enjoy a full, firm breast appearance; however, your breasts will naturally continue to change after your procedure. Changes in weight, lifestyle, and hormonal fluctuations can also influence the appearance of the breasts. It is common to observe sagging, stretched skin and breasts that become larger than intended. This can lead to a desire to improve the results of a prior breast surgery, even when there are no complications present.
Do I Need Breast Revision Surgery?
Breast augmentation boasts a high success rate, but breast revision surgery may be appropriate to address certain cosmetic concerns relating to implants:
Capsular contracture: It is normal for a capsule to develop around the breast implant. However, if this capsule becomes too thick and stiff, the implant may come under too much pressure, in turn distorting its shape or rendering it asymmetrical with the other breast. This condition is called capsular contracture. Breast revision surgery can remove the capsule scar tissue and replace or remove the breast implant, providing the patient with a more attractive breast appearance.
Implant removal: Women who no longer wish to have implants may benefit from breast revision surgery to completely remove their implants without replacing them. However, the skin that was stretched around the larger implant still needs to be addressed. Dr. Raj may suggest a breast lift in addition to revision for a more comprehensive result.
Implant downsizing: Sometimes, patients prefer to decrease the size of the breast implants rather than removing them entirely. Dr. Raj can change out the implants and address any loose skin that may remain.
