A breast implant revision surgery entails a board-certified plastic surgeon replacing old implants with new breast implants. If the patient experiences pain or a contracture rupture from old implants, it can be cause for concern and initiate a consultation with a qualified surgeon to perform revision implant surgery. Many times, patients also seek to alter the type or style of an implant from saline to silicone while also changing the shape and size of the breasts. Many goals can be accomplished with revision implant surgery, especially if the patient is dissatisfied with the results from the old implants. If you already have breast implants that you would like replaced for aesthetic or safety reasons, you can schedule a consultation to discuss your surgery options with plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Jimmy Firouz.

Ruptures Silicone Implant After 25 Years?
I am 56 years old and found out that one of my implants has ruptured. It’s been 25 years since they were first implanted. Can I expect relatively natural-looking breasts if I don’t have any more put in?
Possibly. It should be fine not to have new implants put in. Worst case scenario, you can always have them removed and see how you feel without them completely. After a period of about 3-4 months, if you’re absolutely not happy, you can have new implants put in.
Is it possible to have your breasts look natural after removing your implants?
I have 600 right now, but wanted to completely remove them.
Unlikely. After removing 600 CC implants, it’s very unlikely that the breasts will look natural without some kind of revision surgery, for example, a breast lift or smaller implant.
Had Beverly Hills Breast Implant Removal 4 Days Ago, when Can I Resume Exercise?
I had my 325 sub muscular implants removed last week and my Dr. didn’t really give me any restrictions. Just wanting some more opinions. Should I wear a sports bra for more than a week to bind? How long should I sleep in a sports bra? When can I resume high impact exercise…running, cardio kick boxing? My Dr. said just wait about a week. I love my Doc but I think he does more implants than explants. Can I hurt anything by exercising?
I think it is important to speak to the surgeon who removed the implants because he/she would know how extensive the surgery was (i.e. capsulectomy, etc). The extent of the procedure will be a game-changer as far as returning to strenuous activity early, as opposed to simple removal of implants which would allow the patient to go back to strenuous activity much quicker!
