Breast Implant Rupture Repair Surgery
Breast implant surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the United States. Dr. Erez Dayan is a top breast implant surgeon with extensive training and experience. He performs numerous breast-related cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries each year at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute in Reno/Tahoe, NV. These include breast implant rupture repair surgery when a breast implant fails.
Breast implants are not only popular, but they are also among the most successful cosmetic surgeries available. The procedure is relatively simple, and failures are not common. Still, when a breast implant ruptures, it can cause some complications as well as aesthetic signals. Common signs of a breast implant rupture include:
- Flattened, sunken or drooping breast
- Burning sensation within the breast
- Formation of silicone granules on the skin (with silicone implants)
- Other skin reactions
The saline solution within saline implants is harmless and will be simply absorbed by the body. Silicone gel from a silicone implant may cause a skin reaction or the formation of small silicone granules on the surface of your breast. If you suspect a breast implant has ruptured, you should see your plastic surgeon for an examination and x-ray as soon as possible.
Reno Repairs for Failed Breast Implants
When Dr. Dayan determines that your breast implant has failed, he will recommend surgery to replace it. Repairs for failed breast implants typically involve removing the failed implant and replacing it with a new one. Some repositioning may be necessary to achieve proper symmetry with your other breast.
The previous implant incision is commonly used, removing the necessity of creating another scar. Dr. Dayan may also have to slightly enlarge the breast capsule for the new implant to fit properly. He will also sometimes use fat grafting or liposuction to create the proper aesthetic shape and smooth appearance to match the other breast.
