Breast implants have come a long way since originally introduced in the 1960s
Modern implants are more durable and well designed than ever before
They’re available in more sizes, shapes, and styles for your unique needs and preferences.
Although modern implants are bio-compatible (not rejected by the body), they’re mechanical, non-biological devices. They’re imperfect. A woman’s body adapts to implants, and implants conform to the space into which they’re placed. Sometimes, problems with implants develop. These problems may occur early after augmentation, or after many years. The woman’s breasts and body change over time. Often, implants that were perfect at the beginning need replacement for one reason or another.
Existing problems or dissatisfaction must be significant enough to justify the cost and risk of revision surgery before proceeding. If there is a minor problem but the result is overall very good or excellent, it may not be wise to revise because the secondary result may not be better. If the implants are old, ruptured, firm, uncomfortable, and/or appear un-natural or not beautiful, it is probably worth revision and/or replacement. Although good long lasting results can never be guaranteed, Dr. Laverson will not advise revision surgery unless he is confident that your result will be improved.
