Breast augmentations are intended to help you feel comfortable and confident in your appearance. If that’s no longer the case, consider what a breast implant revision can do for you.

How Do Implants Change Over Time?

The size and shape of your breasts will continue to change over time as a natural part of the aging process, even after you get implants. Additional factors that can affect their appearance include changes in weight and hormones. These changes may eventually prompt you to consider a breast implant revision.

Modern implants have no expiration date, but you shouldn’t expect them to last a lifetime. On average, breast implants can last between 10 and 20 years, although they can last longer than that. You may also want to have them replaced earlier due to changes in your cosmetic preferences or to address complications.

Why Have a Breast Implant Revision?

Breast augmentation has consistently remained one of the most common plastic surgery procedures, largely due to its high satisfaction rate. However, certain conditions can cause patients to consider breast implant revision.

For example, bottoming out, which occurs when the implants drop noticeably on the chest, can cause the implants to appear too low and the nipples too high. In addition, this process can cause the implants to bulge or elongate. The best solution is often to position the implant higher on the chest with an acellular dermal matrix, resulting in a more natural, youthful shape.
