Excellent Service from Abud of Flymedi

Abud was excellent in arranging my visit to Istanbul for both Eyelid and Hair Treatment. I decided to combine both treatments at Estecenter due to the clinics reputation. recommendations and also Abud's guidance. Abud clearly communicated the types of treatments available , estimated costs , all treatment schedules , travel logistics , hotel arrangements and daily transportation to and from clinic. Through responses coordinated between Abud and Estecenter he answered all my questions beforehand and was concise in the cost of treatments being communicated by Estecenter . Truly excellent service and i highly recommend you engage Abud as this leaves you know worries in relaxing during and after your very important treatments that you waited so long to have done Also i decided to stay and additional 7 days , at my own cost in Istanbul, to help my recovery.

Life changing !

I had a massive operation with a full body lift that actually required 2 separate visits to Turkey which was very daunting for me to commit to but I’m so happy I did. I’ve never felt comfortable in my own skin and really struggled with my body especially after having 2 kids. It was really nice to do something for myself and Luna clinic made the experience hassle free for me. They were there for me from beginning to end through both visits and it couldn’t have gone better for me. Thank you so much for the life changing operation and experience.

Recommended For Breast Implant Revision

Women who are unhappy with size, shape or appearance of their breast implants and are concerned about the integrity or condition of their implants are good candidates for breast implant revision surgery. 

This plastic surgery offers a possibility of changing the breast implants size and as a result – ensuring that a patient will feel good in her body.  

Not Recommended For Breast Implant Revision

If you are physically healthy and at a stable weight and feel that your current breast implants are not the right size and you want a breast increase or breast reduction without total breast implant removal, a breast implant revision surgery seems like a right choice. Nevertheless, contact with a breast implant revision specialist in order to get full information and have a medical examination.

Overview

Breast implant revision is a common cosmetic surgery among women who have breast implants. It is a corrective surgical procedure included change of implant type, change of implant location, change of implant size, and scar revision. 

Both silicone breast implants and saline implants do not adjust themselves to the changing body. To the contrary – they have a tendency to change shape in a way which doesn’t make women satisfied. 

There are two solutions for misshapen breast implants. One of them is the complete removal of the breast implant, which causes a reduction in the size of the breast. It is preferred by patients who are not satisfied with their large breast implants and who are looking for a natural appearance. However, many patients with breast implants aim at breast reduction without coming back to their previous breast size. Others seek even breast increase to a larger scale. For both these groups, breast implant revision surgery is a perfect solution.

Preparation

The first step you take when preparing for a breast implant revision surgery should be to provide your doctor with information about the medical conditions you have and provide a list of medicines you receive for them. In this way, medicines which may affect the breast implant revision surgery results may be ruled out. Additionally, you should share with your breast implant revision specialist the documentation regarding your previous breast enlargement surgery. Finally, it may be deemed necessary for you to stop smoking for some weeks and fast for some hours before your breast implant revision.

How It Is Performed

There are a few types of breast implant revision. Among them are:

  • Breast Enhancement or Augmentation– when patients think that their breast size is still too small and they decide to increase breast size with larger breast implants.
  • Breast Reduction – for patients who want small breast implants but not a breast implant removal without replacement.
  • Breast Implant Revision for medical or aesthetical reasons – some patients want or need breast implant revision surgery without changing the size of their breast implants. The reason in such a case may be a rupture in the breast implant or its deformation. For example, double-bubble deformity is one of the most common problems in breast augmentation. It occurs when a breast implant is placed lower than the old inframammary crease.

Sometimes also the excessive scar tissue around breast implants is removed in order to make breasts softer. It can be also combined with a breast lift procedure.

Recovery

The length of the breast implant revision recovery depends on the type of surgery performed. As it is a case with the first breast augmentation, the surgery may result in bruising and swelling, which should recede within the first 3 weeks. However, if the breast implants are removed entirely, the recovery is usually shorter, with minimal discomfort. 

Generally, breast implant revision specialists dissuade from strenuous physical activities in this period. You may need to wear a compression garment in order to keep swelling at bay. Additionally, pain after this breast augmentation surgery should be bearable with medicines prescribed by your doctor.

Risks

While many breast implant revisions finish with success, still complications rarely occur. In some cases, breast implant revision surgery may lead to: 

  • Infection
  • Excessive scar tissue
  • Breast Deformation
  • Bleeding
  • Poor healing of incisions
  • Anesthesia risks
  • Fluid accumulation (seroma)
  • Asymmetry

However, keep in mind that such events are unlikely to happen as a result of breast implant revision surgery.

Success Rates

While there is no exact data available, breast implant revision specialists agree that the success rate of this type of surgery is quite high, somewhere above 90%.

What Is a Breast Implant Revision?
Breast implant revision surgery is a procedureduring which doctors replace old breast implants with new ones. It can lead to breast reduction, breast increase or leave the same size of implants and only fix the problem occurred after the initial operation. 

What Is Better: Breast Implant Revision or Breast Implant Removal?
They are two different medical procedures. It depends on what you want – if you want to resign totally from breast implants, breast implant removal without a replacement could be a good option for you. Breast implant revision with breast reduction may be an option for patients who want smallerbreasts but still enhanced according to the pre-implant situation. 

Which Is Better: Saline Breast Implants or Silicone Breast Implants?
It is again up to you and your surgeon’s decision, both saline implants, and silicone breast implants can give splendid results in the hands of an experienced and skilled breast implant surgeon.
