Revision Surgery Needed?
I am sorry to read of your disappointment. The #sagging or #flattening of current implants can occur for many reasons. Some include the #size of the breast and implant, #weight of the breast and implant, #gravity, #age and/or aging, #weight loss and weight gain. #Tissue integrity (i.e. some women are more prone to experience sagging due to weakness of their skin and breast #tissue at the fold).
In regards to implants alone, this is usually said to be mistake by patients reflecting back at the decision. Most breasts will look larger and more droopy with solely implants. They will sag more and sooner, due to the sudden and excess weight. At times it's possible for a “Snoopy” breast or double bubble to develop as a result. There are a variety of techniques for a #BreastLift. I prefer to use the short scar technique, “#lollipop scar” or “#donut lift” rather than the majority of surgeons in the United States that use an anchor pattern lift which involve more significant scarring.
Please be advised that each patient is unique and previous results are not a guarantee for individual outcomes. As with all cosmetic surgery, results will be rewarding if expectations are realistic. With any surgical procedure, there are some risks which your doctor will discuss with you during your consultation.
It is imperative you select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with breast #augmentation and the incision type, #implant placement, and implant type. Aside from checking board-certification, it is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews.
