After an initial breast augmentation, most women enjoy their results. While this may be the case for most, some may still feel dissatisfied with the appearance of their breast implants. Some may even experience complications from having implants, such as capsular contracture, rotation of implants, bottoming out (where the implant sits too low), or for other reasons. Breast augmentation revision in Ottawa, performed by Dr. Howard Silverman or Dr. Kirsty Boyd, is a surgical procedure to improve the look or correct a complication of breast augmentation.

Breast Revision Procedure
Women seeking breast augmentation revision should understand that there are several reasons for wanting the procedure; therefore, each breast revision case will be highly unique. While some may seek breast revision for cosmetic purposes, other women can benefit from a health standpoint. The most common reasons for changing or removing breast implants in Ottawa are:
- Dissatisfaction with size
- Significant scar tissue
- Breast asymmetry
- Capsular contracture
- Deflated or ruptured implants
Breast augmentation revision is performed as an outpatient procedure, and the time it takes as well as incisions will vary between individuals. Each revision procedure is often highly unique, and as such, treatment is highly individualized. Your surgeon will present options during your consultation to help you to create a surgical plan of care. It is important that you follow all of the postoperative instructions so as to allow your breasts to heal properly.
Together with your plastic surgeon, you will discuss your concerns, along with your aesthetic goals. Because breast revision surgery is more complex than the initial breast augmentation procedure, it is important to have realistic goals of what can be achieved with a breast revision procedure.
