Deflation after augment

The major implant companies offer warranties that should certainly apply for a deflation at three months. You should contact your surgeon who can evaluate you and document the deflation and also get in touch with the implant manufacturer to make arrangements for you. If it is deflated, you should have it replaced but replacement surgery is usually not as extensive as the original procedure. Good luck to you.

Thank you for your question. Most implant manufactures offer a limited warranty for implant failure that may cover the cost of the implant and the surgical procedure to replace the ruptured implant. I recommend that you make an appointment with your plastic surgeon to discuss replacement of your ruptured implant.

Thank you for this question. Deflation this soon after augmentation is rare. Check with you plastic surgeon. Check if implant warranty coverage applies in your case. Good luck!

Although extremely rare, it can happen. Consult with your plastic surgeon. He or she will determine if it is indeed a deflation. They will advise you on what steps to take next for removing and replacing the deflated implant. All the best to you.
