Correct or Maintain Your Bust Line Enhancement
Breast Revision Edina
If you need to replace a breast implant, address a complication resulting from breast augmentation, or correct the unsatisfactory results of a previous surgery, Dr. Brian J. Kobienia performs breast revision surgery at his Edina practice. Breast implants do not last forever; most implants are guaranteed for only 10 years. As such, a follow-up surgery at some point in a breast augmentation patient's future is almost certain. Breast revision surgery may also become necessary if excessive scar tissue develops around the implant (capsular contracture), causing the breasts to take on an unnatural or undesirable shape. In more than a third of all breast revision cases, women simply wish that they had requested a larger implant or different contour.
We understand how important a woman's bust line is to her appearance, and in turn, her confidence and self-esteem. No matter what has caused you to seek breast revision surgery, our Edina practice serving the greater Minneapolis, Minnesota area can help you achieve precisely the bust line you desire. To learn more about how we can meet your needs through this procedure, please contact us today.
Breast Revision Candidates
In addition to a desire to change the size and shape of the breasts, or to replace a visibly damaged implant, a multitude of circumstances can make breast revision surgery a prudent decision for you:
- Breast implants that have shifted from their original position
- A change in breast shape because of pregnancy, weight gain or weight loss
- Saline implants that have lost volume and definition because of a leak
- X-rays revealing a leak in a silicone implant
- A desire to change the shape of the breasts
- Excessive scar tissue has caused the breast to become misshapen
Before Breast Revision
To ensure that the results of your breast revision surgery will be to your satisfaction and help you achieve peace of mind, Dr. Kobienia will first conduct a thorough consultation with you. He will ask you about the shape and size of bust line you wish to achieve, along with any other characteristics you wish to change. In doing so, he can accurately determine whether your goals can realistically be met. If you can provide as much detail as possible about your initial surgery, it will be of great value in planning your revision procedure.
Additionally, if you plan to embark on a significant weight loss plan, or would like to become pregnant in the near future, it is important to share your intentions with Dr. Kobienia.
Your Breast Revision Procedure
Because this procedure is highly individualized, it may draw upon numerous techniques associated with breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction. The surest way to achieve optimal results through breast revision surgery is to be straightforward and realistic about your goals.
