Breast Implant Corrections

Dr Tony’s years of experience means you are in excellent hands

Breast implant corrections can become necessary for patients who have experienced suboptimal outcomes following breast implant surgery or ruptured breast implants. This may occur when a patient chooses a surgeon who isn’t adequately skilled with breast implants, or who doesn’t acquire proper measurements for pre-surgery planning. We also frequently receive requests for breast corrections when a patient has received cheap ‘production-line’ breast implant surgeries that haven’t been customised for their individual needs.

It is important that you choose your surgeon carefully, and opt for a specialist who can help you achieve a high-quality, long-lasting and natural-looking result.

If an earlier surgeon has botched the procedure or failed to achieve the results you wanted, Specialist Breast Clinic may be able to help with our expert breast implant corrections.

 

Reasons for Breast Implant Corrections

Most women will be able to enjoy the benefits of well-performed breast augmentation without the need for a breast implant fix. However, there may be some circumstances when breast corrections become necessary:

  • Implant leakage or rupture — simple implant replacement surgery may be required for the rupture of a silicone implant, or the leakage or deflation of a saline implant.
  • Implant displacement — breast corrections may be required if implants move away from their original position.
  • Capsular contracture — this occurs when internal scar tissue forms a tight capsule around a breast implant.
  • Breast implant replacement — you may decide, post-surgery, that the size or shape of your implants isn’t what you hoped for. A breast implant fix may help you achieve your desired look.
  • Breast implant removal — also called implant explantation, this breast corrections procedure is typically more popular with older patients. It involves removing the breast implants entirely.
  • Breast implant associated anaplastic lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) this is a rare cancer of the immune system directly associated with breast implants. Approximately 1 in 3500 patients who have had breast implants inserted, whether for reconstructive or cosmetic reasons, will develop the condition. It typically presents with a swollen red breast and a large collection of fluid around the implant (periprosthetic effusion).

Specialist Breast Clinic recommends annual ultrasound monitoring of breast implants. Any changes to your breasts need to be reported to your doctor as soon as possible.

 

Questions to ask about breast corrections:

Breast implant corrections can be complex and often costly. That’s why we have an initial consultation with you to discuss your needs and history. If you are thinking about breast corrections, ask yourself these questions:

  • Are your breast implants causing you pain?
  • Have your breasts unusually hardened since the implants?
  • Are your implants moving?
  • Are you unhappy with the appearance of your implants?
  • Have you noticed any breast rippling or movement?
  • Do you have realistic expectations for your surgery outcomes?
  • Are you aware of what breast corrections surgery entails and what it can/cannot achieve?
