How likely is it that my implants will fall back to the center after revision?
Doctor Answers 4
When you say "fall to the center", I assume you are talking about "symmastia" when the implants touch each other in the midline.
Revision surgery can address this but there are so many factors to go over.
-where was the implant originally placed? Was it over or under the muscle?
- are you switching to a textured implant?
- will the surgeon be placing adm to help reinforce the revision repair?
In order to optimize your chance of success, make sure you are seen by a board certified/eligible plastic surgeon.
i hope this helps.
