Breast Implant Revision and Replacement Surgery

Posted October 31, 2023 in Breast Implant Replacement, Breast Revision

By Dr. Chris Patronella
A common procedure in my practice is breast implant replacement, in which patients have had implants for many years and, for one reason or another, things have changed either with their breasts or their implants. The implants might have shifted—typically outwards after having children. The breasts might now sag compared to how they were 20 years ago when the implants were first placed.

A good portion of my practice is changing implants and improving their position as well as improving the shape of the breasts. We call that breast implant revision surgery. It’s very common for women who’ve had implants for many years and then have children. And it’s something I take great satisfaction in doing because it’s not always a simple procedure like a breast augmentation. And, therefore, it challenges me. I really enjoy providing the necessary changes to improve overall breast appearance when we’re going back for a second or even a third procedure in many circumstances for women who’ve had implants for many years.
