Back in 2010, Heidi Montag, the star of a then-popular reality television show, under went an astounding 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, including a breast augmentation leaving her with F-cups. Quickly following the multitude of procedures, Montag began to experience symptoms such as chronic back and neck pain, loss of functioning, and numbness in her extremities. The former reality TV star went on to state, “Over the past few years, my implants have handicapped me. I have not been able to do a lot of things… [such as] do laundry, or look after my dogs, or clean my house, and I have had to stop working out because y injuries are so severe. I can’t even do simple things like rowing or running.” After three years of general discomfort and suffering, Montag has made the life altering decision to undergo breast implant revision surgery and reduce her implants down to a C-cup. Heidi’s symptoms are expected to improve drastically following her breast implant revision procedure. If you are also unhappy with an initial breast augmentation procedure, corrective surgery could help you achieve more natural, beautiful, and healthy breasts.

Am I a Good Candidate for Corrective Breast Implant Surgery Too?

Over 300,000 breast augmentations are performed each year, some of which, like Montag’s, will eventually require a follow up revision procedure. Breast revision surgery can become necessary for a number of reasons including a change in aesthetic preferences, a botched initial surgery or unforeseen, natural bodily changes post operation. Breast implant revision surgery may become necessary for individuals suffering from one or more of the following:

  • Chronic back and/or neck pain
  • A loss of daily functioning
  • Numbness in the extremities
  • Capsular contracture
  • Positioning issues, including asymmetry
  • Desire to increase or decrease implant size
  • A ruptured or leaking implant
  • Deformity

If you have undergone an original breast augmentation yet are unsatisfied with the results or experiencing any of the conditions described above, breast revision surgery could be beneficial for you. Whether you are looking to create a more natural appearance, increase or decrease the size of your implants, or correct a previous breast surgery, breast revision surgery can help alleviate pain and discomfort, boost self esteem, and enhance the appearance of your breasts.
