In certain cases, some people may opt to seek breast enhancement services from insufficiently qualified medical professionals, usually based on cheap pricing of such services. It does not require a brain surgeon for anyone to realize that under-qualified medical practitioners may not offer the best cosmetic surgery service. When things do go wrong, you would then require corrective breast implants to deal with the failed enhancement surgery.
However, even in situations whereby you seek the services of a highly competent plastic surgeon, there is still the risk – although very minimal – of things going wrong. Moreover, a competent surgeon may also recommend a corrective procedure during the normal follow-up visit, after a period of having the implant, merely to reposition it or even to fix in a completely new one.
Which Situations Would Necessitate Corrective Surgery For Your Implants?
A corrective implant would be recommended only when it is required. Two key instances in which corrects would be required are: leaking and wrong size implants.
1. How Leaking Implants Are Dealt With
Since implants normally contain some form of fluid (this could be either a silicone gel or sterile salty water), any breakage would cause the fluid to leak out onto the surrounding breast tissue. If you have such an occurrence, you need not worry about whatever fluid it is causing cancer (based on a November 2014 media release by the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, you would face virtually no risk of cancer due to the implant fluid getting into contact with your internal body tissues).
The only issue you would worry about is the deflated look of your chest, effectively negating the enhanced look for which you underwent surgery. Fortunately, this issue can be effectively handled by replacing the broken implant with a new one. Of course, this new one would also have to be of better quality and the operation handled by a highly qualified professional, to significantly reduce the risk of such a situation occurring.
2. Dealing With Wrong-Sized Implants
A competent surgeon would always make sure that the exact look you want is what you get after breast enhancement surgery. This is why you would always go through intensive counseling before undergoing surgery, so that both you and your doctor can be on the same page with regard to the expected outcomes of surgery.
The occurrence of a boob job appearing either too prominent or subtitle is something that is significantly more likely to occur when seeking the services of an incompetent surgeon rather than a competent one. If this happens, you would be wise to seek corrective surgery from a truly competent surgeon, especially since corrective surgery is even more complicated than the initial breast enhancement procedure itself.
What To Do After Corrective Surgery
In order to avoid recurrence of leaking implants following corrective surgery, you must be extremely careful about how you take care of yourself after surgery. It's so much more important that you get sufficient rest, apart from avoiding any strain on the implants. You would also need to abide by your surgeon's schedule of follow-up visits in order to have your recovery progress examined and ensure that there are no further risks of leakage.
