Breast implants are intended to add fullness and a feminine shape or to restore lost volume after weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or age-related changes. However, some women can experience complications that leave them with unwanted changes to their breasts or nipples or potential health risks due to their implants. Dr. Kerendian, Los Angeles breast implant revision surgeon, may recommend a revision to remove or replace the original implant, or to otherwise address the issues with the augmentation procedure.
Dr. Kerendian, expert in breast implant revision in Los Angeles, may recommend a breast implant revision if you:
• Are unhappy with the appearance of your breast augmentation
• Are suffering complications due to your breast augmentation
• Have pain or discomfort due to your breast implants
• Have other issues linked to breast implants
For the best results, you should be in good physical and mental health, have realistic expectations and not be currently pregnant or breastfeeding.
