Breast Revision

When you have breast augmentation performed, you hope to be fully satisfied with the final results. What happens when the results are not in line with your expectations, or when your aesthetic preferences change over time? Through breast revision, you can enhance the results of a previous breast procedure, reshaping the breast implants, decreasing or increasing size, and potentially having a breast lift performed.Dr. Naveen Ahuja is a double board-certified plastic surgeon with considerable experience performing breast revisions for patients in NYC.

The Benefits Of Getting A Breast Revision

Some of the most common reasons to pursue a breast revision include:

Am I A Good Candidate To Receive A Breast Augmentation?

A Breast Augmentation Is Ideal For

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are simply dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. Often, they are moms who lost breast volume following pregnancy and breastfeeding, or women whose breasts were diminished due to extensive weight loss. Ideal candidates are in good overall health and do not smoke.

It Is Not So Great For

Breast augmentation may not be the best option for women who have underlying health conditions, smoke, or are more concerned with the shape of their breasts than with the size. In addition, women with a history of autoimmune disease or a propensity for autoimmune disease may not be candidates for implant-based augmentation.

How Old Do I Have To Be To Get A Breast Augmentation?

When done for cosmetic reasons, you are a candidate for a saline implant breast augmentation at 18 and a silicone implant breast augmentation at 22 years of age.

Implant Types For Breast Augmentation: Which Is Best For Me?

Silicone Gel Breast Implants

Dr. Naveen Ahuja provides patients with a full spectrum of implant options, including silicone gel implants. Many women say that silicone implants are softer to the touch and feel more like natural breasts, and they are also more pliable and offer a more natural appearance. Since silicone implants are filled in advance, larger incisions are needed to get these implants into place. Dr. Gandolfi will talk with you about techniques to conceal and minimize your scarring.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline implants are filled with a sterile saline water solution. They can be a bit firmer in feel and give a fuller appearance. Because they can be inserted and then filled, the incisions may be smaller. And, if saline breasts ever rupture, the saline solution is safely absorbed into the body.

Breast Augmentation With Fat Transfer

Some women simply do not wish to have artificial implants, in which case a fat transfer may be best. With this method, excess fat is harvested from elsewhere on the body, then sculpted into the shape of healthy, natural-looking breasts. Fat transfers do not allow for quite as much added volume, but they do provide the most natural look and feel.
