What Can I Expect From Breast Implant Revision?
The weird dent you refer to on your right breast is more than likely secondary to a capsular contracture. I have seen this type of dent on several patients who have come to me for a revision. These dents always turn out to be caused by scar tissue (capsular contracture). These dents are relatively easily cured by an open capsulectomy.
The infra areolar scars, which admittedly are not attractive, I find are best hidden by tattooing areola pigment over the scars 3-4 months after the breast implant revision.
There is no way to guarantee you improved results with the revision, however I recommend you have an open and honest discussion with your Board Certified plastic surgeon about both your concerns, and also his or her plan for the revision.
What to Expect with a Breast Implant Revision
Be sure to 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. Plastic surgeons who have specialized in breast surgery and cosmetic surgery are suitable to perform your breast augmentation. 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. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
Breast Implant revision goals and expectations
I would recommend that you discuss this openly with your plastic surgeon. I recommend follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon to discuss treatment options. I do believe that your implant pocket on the right could be enhance and made more to your liking and that your scars would likely improve with scar revison.
