Breast Implant Revision Toronto, Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Am I the right candidate for Breast Implant Revision?

There are several reasons why you may choose breast implant revision in Toronto. This could be primarily due to a cosmetic surgery gone wrong where the results did not satisfy you. This might lead to a need for correction of the breast implant. Many Toronto breast implant revision patients trade older saline implants for gummy bear breast implants using cohesive silicone gel. No matter what your reason is for seeking a breast implant revision, Dr. Plant can help you. He serves patients all over Toronto and the surrounding areas of Mississauga and Markham for their breast implant revision needs. These patients and many other trust Dr. Plant for his vast breast knowledge and cutting edge surgical techniques to get the results his patients desire. To schedule your personalized consultation, call our Toronto or Orillia office to see if breast implant revision is right for you.

Other reasons for seeking a revision is capsular contracture. This is one complication which occurs due to the naturally forming tissue around the implant tightening and constricting. This leads to a breast that is hardened which does not feel or look natural anymore. A breast implant revision is what should be done to correct any problems with capsular contracture.

A rupture or deflation of the implant is another reason why Toronto patients may opt to undergo implant revision surgery. Even though this is uncommon, rupture has been a reality for a small percentage of patients in Ontario. You should follow Dr. Plant’s instructions regarding breast care to prevent an implant rupture.

It’s important to understand that saline and silicone breast implants behave differently when they rupture. A rupture with the saline implant is immediately obvious and the sterile saline is harmlessly absorbed into the body. However, today’s silicone gel implants maintain their shape if torn or ruptured, so an MRI is required to detect a ruptured gel implant.

What can I expect during my Toronto Implant Revision Surgery?

The actual procedure Dr. Plant will use for breast implant removal and replacement varies depending on the reason for wanting implant revision surgery. This is why it is very important to consult with him regarding the reason for your desired revision during a one-on-one consultation at his Toronto or Orillia office.

How long is downtime from Breast Augmentation Revision?

Dr. Plant will discuss how long it will take before you can return to your normal level of activity and work during the consultation. Once the surgery is complete, the patient and caregiver receive detailed instructions regarding post-surgical care which includes the following information:

  • Drains if any have been used during the procedure
  • Any normal symptoms that the patient experiences
  • Any potential signs of a complication

Following surgery, most women can return to work within a week or 10 days, depending on the amount of activity their work requires. It may be a few weeks or months before the new implants settle into the final required position and they do soften within one to two months after surgery. Tingling or numbness around the incision may be experienced which will gradually decrease over the next weeks and months following surgery.
