Revising Breast Augmentation with Implants or Fat Grafts

Unlike a warranty on a car or major appliance there’s typically no limit as to how long breast implants will remain trouble-free. For some, implants will last up to 10 to 15 years, but often shifts within the body or lifestyle changes will trigger the desire for change long before there’s trouble with the implant.

Over time, the skin of the breasts experience changes in elasticity as a result of skin stretching through weight loss or weight gain, causing shifts in the position of the implants.

These thin, nearly transparent strips enwrap the implant, creating the permanent shortening of a joint or muscle. Medically this is known as contracture.

If the diagnosis requires a mastectomy (removal of the breast) and subsequent reconstruction, the process can be a significant blow to a women’s self-esteem. Beyond dealing with a life-threatening illness there is also a very valid concern of losing part of the body to the disease. Better than Prior Options In the past, women had fewer breast reconstruction options beyond the TRAM procedure (Transverse Rectus Abdominis Myocutaneous). This procedure was more invasive and had the potential of a hernia or abdominal bulge post-surgery. Today, there is a much more advanced form of breast reconstruction available that preserves the abdominal muscles.
