Neil J. Zemmel, MD, FACS details the various reasons why patients may seek a breast implant revision for their initial augmentation results.

Richmond, VA – Dr. Neil J. Zemmel, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Richmond, is highly experienced in performing a wide range of breast procedures. Even though breast augmentation is the most popular and has a very high satisfaction rate, many patients wish to revise their initial results with a secondary procedure. Whether there was a healing complication, a problem with the implant, or a desire to change implant size, Dr. Zemmel explains there are several possibilities for why patients seek breast revision surgery.

Patients may desire an implant revision anywhere from one year after their augmentation to decades after. Dr. Zemmel notes that the reason for their visit can vary greatly, as breast revision surgery can correct a variety of problems, including:

  • Capsular contracture
  • Implant rupture
  • Implant malposition
  • Rippling
  • Dissatisfaction with size

At Richmond Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Zemmel spends time during consultations to determine if the patient is a good candidate for breast revision surgery. He listens to their goals, conducts a physical examination, and creates a tailored treatment plan based on his assessment. Dr. Zemmel is committed to helping patients reach their ideal outcome through breast revision surgery and works closely with each individual to establish the most effective course of action to help them reach their aesthetic goals.

Dr. Zemmel recommends anyone unhappy with their breast augmentation results, or who desires an upgrade, to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is experienced with performing the procedure to achieve optimal results.
