Breast Revision in Tijuana

Breast augmentation using implants is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the entire world, and in most cases yields beautiful and natural outcomes. Unfortunately, sometimes a patient can be dissatisfied with the appearance of her breasts and may require breast revision surgery. Keep in mind not all revision surgeries are because of doctor error. Our Board-certified plastic surgeons are willing to take on even the more challenging cases of breast implant revision surgery (including patients with which he did not perform the initial augmentation).

While few breast augmentations do end with a poor outcome, there are individuals who desire a larger or smaller implant, while some may have a problem and ask to have the implant removed altogether. Implant revision can be necessary for issues such as rippling, implant displacement or replacement, drooping breasts, scarring, capsular contracture, or if the current implants have been placed under the muscle. A revision will include placing new implants above the muscle for a more natural look. Our Surgeons provide breast revision surgery after giving an in-depth assessment at Beauty Brokers in the city of Tijuana so that the right outcome is achieved.

The Ideal Candidate

Should you have any concerns (either cosmetic or medical) after breast augmentation surgery, please make an appointment for a consultation with Beauty Brokers to talk about your goals and to create your unique surgical plan. Whether it’s scar tissue, breast sag, ripples under the skin, or unbalanced breasts, revision surgery can help repair the problem and create a more appealing and properly functioning outcome. This operation may also be appropriate if you would like to alter the implant style, size, or address another aspect of your breasts.

Candidates for implant repair may have a warranty from the manufacturers to protect the products. The warranty may cover costs of the breast implant and sometimes even the cost of surgery should you require a revision to repair leaking, rupture, or otherwise defective breast implants.

Common Reasons For Revision

Secondary breast augmentation either removes an implant that is not functioning properly or is no longer desired. Breast revision surgery may also be performed to change implant size or go from silicone to saline (or vice versa). There are other common situations where a revision surgery is wanted:


Although this is rare, breast implant rupture may occur. When a saline breast implant ruptures, the implant will deflate rather quickly. Because of this, a visible change will be noticeable. Meanwhile, if an implant made of silicone ruptures, it is only caught via an MRI. In either case, when a rupture occurs, a revision treatment will be needed.


Capsular contracture is known as an area of hardening because of scarring, occurring when the smooth tissue that surrounds the breast implant becomes thick and hard. While breast implants do create some internal hardening, most individuals will never realize this. In some cases, the hardening tissue could change the implant placement, and create an undesirable outcome. Scar removal surgery to remove scarring would be needed as well.
