What Do I Do If My Breast Implants Fail?

Posted on Dec 16, 2015 Breast Implants

Though breast enhancement may change over the course of time, a qualified plastic surgeon can provide a full continuum of care before, during and after your procedure. If you’ve undergone breast augmentation and think your implant may have failed, Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Bottger can assess your case and help you pursue the correct course of care.

When you choose to proceed with a breast augmentation procedure, your doctor’s qualifications and experience should be a top priority, especially when it comes to breast implant leaks or ruptures. Always make sure you have done your research on the following:

If you believe a breast implant has failed, consult your plastic surgeon as soon as possible. If the leak isn’t visibly apparent, Dr. Bottger may conduct a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test, which creates an image of the soft tissue in the bosom using radio waves. Should he diagnose your breast implant with a leak, your options to remove or replace  the failed implant will then be discussed.
