Breast Revision Surgery: Addressing Implant Rippling and Other Common Concerns

August 28, 2017

There are different scenarios in which a woman may choose to have her breast implants removed or replaced. Here we discuss some of the many potential components of breast revision surgery.

Accordingly to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 98% percent of women who have undergone breast augmentation surgery say the results met or exceeded their expectations.

However, due to postoperative factors such as physical activity and scar tissue, these procedures are not entirely predictable.
