Saline implant deflation – contraction right away
Correction of implant deflation refers to a breast augmentation revision that is used to remove and replace a deflated breast implant. However, each implant deflation case must be examined carefully and treated independently.
In this patient case, she had capsular contracture and left implant deflation as seen in the before photos. Additionally, since she had saline implants, the deflation was immediately noticeable due to the thin shell. She immediately began her search for the correction of implant deflation.
Breast Augmentation Revision Consultation
In a breast augmentation revision consultation, you will have the opportunity to pick your new implant size. In order to achieve total breast harmony, both the deflated and inflated implants must be removed. In this case, she wanted to go even bigger than her original implants. A highly trained breast surgeon will take detailed measurements of you throughout your consultation.
Furthermore, having a full stock of saline and silicone implants to physically feel and see is crucial to a successful sizing consultation. Finally, patients must be cognizant of the fact that the implants will actually end up looking about 5% smaller when they are placed inside the body.
Capsular Contracture and Implant Deflation
When implant deflation is accompanied with capsular contraction, such as our patient here, a capsulectomy must be performed simultaneously in your breast augmentation surgery. This ensures a stable and long lasting breast augmentation result.
When done correctly, the correction of breast implant deflation with a breast augmentation revision and capsulectomy will transform your breast appearance into something you can be proud of! If you are like our 44-year-old female patient shown here, please schedule a virtual or in-person consultation with our breast augmentation revision specialist, Dr. Arian Mowlavi MD FACS.
