Deflation of Breast Implant

Breast implants are not known as lifetime devices. They may deflate or rupture for reasons such as trauma to the breast, injury from surgical instruments, normal wear and tear on the implant, and mechanical damage prior to or during surgery. If a deflation or rupture occurs, the treatment option would be to return to the operating room, remove the ruptured implant, and replace it with a new breast implant. If the ruptured implant is a silicone gel implant, then care needs to be taken to clean out the ruptured silicone gel from the pocket area before replacing the breast implant with a new silicone gel breast implant.

Before/After Removal of Deflated Implant and Re-Augmentation

Breast Revision San Diego

The Surgical Procedure
In order to correct a deflation of breast implants, the procedure would only be about 1 hour long, and resembles the original breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Pousti would go through the same incision and remove the ruptured implant and replace it with a brand new implant. Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Pousti takes his time in the operating room to make sure that he does what he can to achieve the patient’s results.

What To Expect After Surgery
Since the pectoral muscles have already been stretched and there is an existing pocket, there is very little pain or discomfort. Patients experience very minimal pain and minimal recovery time.

Resumption Of Physical Activities
Driving may be resumed in 1-2 weeks.
Non-contact sports in 3 weeks.
Contact sports in 6 weeks.
