When To Consider Breast Implant Revision

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breast implants or if you have begun to experience discomfort, it may be time to discuss your breast implant revision options with McLean plastic surgeon Dr. Roberta Gartside. Please call 703-742-8004 today to schedule your consultation and learn more about your options.

Reasons to consider breast implant revision include:

  • Changing implant size, shape, or type
  • Improving the natural feel, symmetry, or location of your implants
  • Addressing surgical complications such as capsular contracture
  • Replacing a deflated implant

There are, of course, myriad reasons women choose to improve, enhance, or alter initial breast augmentation results. Dr. Gartside will listen carefully to yours and help you determine if breast implant revision will be able to help you reach these new goals.


In most cases, Dr. Gartside is able to use the same breast implant incision locations that were used for your original surgery. When this is not possible or new desires make another incision more suitable, Dr. Gartside will take great care to hide the incisions for optimal post-operative appeal. As with all aspects of your breast implant revision procedure, this will be discussed in greater detail during your initial consultation.
