The most common cosmetic surgery for women is a breast augmentation. Many women are unhappy with their natural chest for a variety of reasons. Women are either unhappy with the way their chest naturally is or even the way their breasts look after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Issues may be size, fullness, shape, or even nipple and areola size or shape. No matter your reason, breast augmentation is a great way to improve your self-confidence and get back to feeling like yourself. However, some people who get a breast augmentation end up being unhappy with the results. There are options to correct the issues you have. And you do not have to live with the results forever. Below you will find the top reasons why women are dissatisfied with their breast augmentation and what you can do about it.
Top Reasons for Being Dissatisfied With Breast Augmentation
There are two main reasons why women may be dissatisfied with their breast augmentation. First, the issue may be due to complications that came with the procedure. For example, issues such as:
- Breast pain
- Incorrect implant placement
- Breast asymmetry
- Capsular contracture
- Implant deflation
The second issue may be due to issues with the aesthetic results of the procedure. For example, issues such as implants that are too big, too small, too firm, or not firm enough. Both issues can be resolved with breast implant revision surgery. While you may be hesitant to get another procedure, finding the right surgeon will solve the problem. Dissatisfaction with your breast implants should not last a lifetime. It is important to get the most out of your investment. And a skilled surgeon can help you feel more confident in your skin.
Breast Implant Revision Surgery
Breast implant revision surgery is a second procedure that corrects the issues caused by a prior breast augmentation. This surgery is different for everyone as some are more straightforward and others require more extensive work. Scheduling a consultation with a skilled surgeon can help you understand what your implant revision surgery would look like. Your surgeon will consider all of the important factors, including scarring, availability of tissue, and patient expectations. Because this is a second surgery, surgeons are understanding and sympathetic to your worries about a second procedure. A surgeon cannot promise perfect results due to the nature of cosmetic surgery and your unique circumstances. However, patients report an increase in self-confidence and happiness with their body after breast implant revision Beverly Hills surgery.
Healing & Recovery
The recovery and healing process may be similar to your original breast augmentation depending on the circumstances. In most cases, the recovery process lasts around six to eight weeks. Immediately after surgery, you’ll likely feel soreness. The initial grogginess should wear off within a day. And the pain should not last more than one week. Any residual pain should be manageable. And you should be able to return to light daily activities. The first few weeks require taking it easy and following your surgeon’s post-operation instructions. However, you should feel fully recovered around the two-month mark. While the healing process takes a few weeks, you can gradually work into your regular routine with your surgeon’s approval.
