Reclaim your body.
Women who have undergone breast surgery in the past cannot always predict the future. On occasion, breast implants may need revising for a variety of
reasons. Many women wish to change the size of their breasts over time and need to exchange the volume or profile of their implants. Another reason breast
revision might be necessary may be a fluctuation in weight or skin’s elasticity due to becoming pregnant or breast-feeding. Previously, breast implants
had a shelf-life and needed replacing after ten or more years. With today’s technology implants could last you up to a lifetime; however, you should
consult with a doctor to learn more about implant safety and your body. A consultation is the easiest way to get more information about your unique
situation and see if a breast revision may help you achieve your desired results.

What to Expect during a Breast Revision
Your breast revision will most likely be done using a general anesthesia and may take up to a few
hours. After your procedure, you may be instructed to avoid heavy lifting and get lots of rest. Downtime for a breast revision varies by the individual;
