Adjusting Size Up or Down
The larger implant size you chose when you were younger can sometimes not be what you’d prefer years later, or maybe you chose a modest size to start and now want a more dramatic look. Revision surgery can give you a bust size that fits your current beauty goals.
Correcting Implant Displacement

A hard pocket of scar tissue can sometimes develop around the implant, which can cause the breasts to feel hard or even painful. When this occurs, a revision surgery can effectively repair the breast pocket and remove the scar tissue.
Replace Faulty Implant
