Why Breast Implant Revision?

There are many reasons why women choose implant revision:

  • Unsatisfying Cosmetic Results

  • Capsular Contracture
    This complication occurs when the tissue that naturally forms around the breast implant begins to tighten and constrict, creating a hardened breast that feels and looks unnatural – breast implant redo surgery in Mexico City is the solution.
  • Implant Deflation or Rupture
    Though implant rupture is not very common, it does occur for a small percentage of women. Following your plastic surgeon’s instructions regarding breast care is the first step in preventing a rupture.

Saline and silicone breast implants behave differently when they rupture. The effects of a saline implant rupture are immediately obvious, with the sterile saline being harmlessly absorbed into the body. The current generation of silicone gel implants will maintain their shape if torn or ruptured, so regular MRI screenings are needed to detect rupture.
