Who is a good candidate for a breast implant correction?

Good candidates for breast implant correction surgery include women who have previously undergone breast augmentation surgery and are experiencing issues with their implants, such as implant displacement, capsular contracture, implant rupture, or dissatisfaction with the size or shape of their breasts.

It’s important for candidates to be in good overall health, have realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery, and be committed to following all pre- and post-operative instructions provided by their surgeon.

As with any surgical procedure, the best way to determine if you’re a good candidate for breast implant correction surgery is to schedule a consultation with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Daniel Yamini. He will evaluate your unique situation, discuss your goals and expectations, and recommend the best course of action for achieving the beautiful, natural-looking breasts you desire.

What are the results of this procedure?

Breast implant correction surgery aims to improve the appearance and/or function of the breasts after a previous surgery. The specific results will depend on the individual concerns being addressed, but may include improved breast symmetry, balance, size, and shape, resulting in increased confidence and self-esteem. Following post-operative instructions is important to ensure optimal results and a smooth recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is this procedure performed?

Breast implants are typically made of a silicone shell filled with either saline (sterile saltwater) or silicone gel. There are various types of breast implants available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Here are the most common types:

  1. Saline implants: These implants are filled with sterile saltwater after being placed in the breast. They can be adjusted for size during surgery, and if they rupture, the saline is harmlessly absorbed by the body.

  2. Silicone implants: These implants are pre-filled with silicone gel, which feels more like natural breast tissue. They are less likely to ripple or wrinkle than saline implants, but if they rupture, the gel may leak into the surrounding tissue.

  3. Cohesive gel implants: Also known as “gummy bear” implants, these are a type of silicone implant that contains a thicker, more cohesive gel. This makes them less likely to leak or rupture, and they retain their shape even if the shell is damaged.

  4. Round implants: As the name suggests, these implants are round in shape and can create a fuller, more dramatic look. They are typically used in patients who want more upper pole fullness.

  5. Teardrop or anatomical implants: These implants are shaped like a natural breast, with more fullness at the bottom and a tapered upper pole. They can create a more natural-looking result, but require a precise placement during surgery to avoid rotation.

The type of implant used will depend on the patient’s goals and preferences, as well as their anatomy and other individual factors. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you and help you make an informed decision.

What can I expect during the procedure?

Breast implant correction is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. The specific details of the procedure may vary depending on the patient’s individual anatomy and the surgeon’s approach, but here is a general overview of what to expect:

  1. Incision: The surgeon will make an incision in the breast, usually in the crease under the breast (inframammary incision), around the nipple (periareolar incision), or in the armpit (transaxillary incision). The incision site will be determined based on the type of implant, the patient’s anatomy, and other factors.

  2. Placement of implant: The surgeon will create a pocket in the breast tissue either under the chest muscle (submuscular placement) or directly behind the breast tissue (subglandular placement). The implant will be inserted into the pocket and positioned to create the desired shape and size.

  3. Closing incision: Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision using sutures or surgical tape. A bandage or surgical bra will be placed over the breasts to provide support and promote healing.

  4. Recovery: The patient will be monitored in a recovery area until the anesthesia wears off and they are stable. They will be given pain medication and instructions for postoperative care, including how to care for the incision site, how to manage pain, and when to follow up with the surgeon.

Most patients can return to light activities within a few days, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. The full recovery period can take several months, during which time the breasts will settle into their final position and the incision scars will fade. The surgeon will provide guidance on when it is safe to resume normal activities.

How is this procedure performed?

The initial results of breast implant correction can be seen immediately after the surgery, although the final results may take several weeks or even months to fully develop. Initially, the breasts may appear swollen, bruised, and firm due to the surgical trauma and the presence of the implants.

Over the next few days and weeks, the swelling and bruising will gradually subside, and the breasts will begin to soften and settle into their final position. The exact timeline for this process can vary depending on the individual patient, the type of implant used, and other factors.

In general, patients can expect to see significant improvements in the appearance of their breasts within the first few weeks after surgery, with further improvements continuing over the next several months.


What can I expect during the procedure?

Breast implants are designed to be long-lasting, but they are not considered to be permanent. The lifespan of breast implants can vary depending on the type of implant, the patient’s anatomy, and other factors.

On average, silicone and saline breast implants are expected to last between 10 and 15 years, although they may last longer or need to be replaced sooner depending on individual circumstances. In some cases, implants may need to be replaced due to complications such as rupture, leakage, or capsular contracture (hardening of the scar tissue around the implant).

It is important for patients to have regular checkups with their surgeon and undergo imaging tests such as MRI or ultrasound to monitor the condition of their implants and ensure that they are still safe and effective.

If a patient experiences any symptoms such as pain, swelling, or changes in the appearance of the breasts, they should contact their surgeon right away to determine if any further evaluation or treatment is needed.
