Breast implant Revision and Removal San Diego & Coronado
What Is a Breast Implant Revision?
Breast Implant Revision Plastic Surgery or Revision Breast Augmentation is a very common plastic surgery procedure performed by Dr. Jaibaji, MD, at his plastic surgery practices in Coronado, California and Hillcrest, California.
Breast Implant Revision Plastic Surgery is a very popular procedure now because as more breast implants surgeries are performed, ie: Breast Augmentations, more revision breast surgeries are being performed to correct problems that occurred.
Dr. Moneer Jaibaji, MD, is particularly sought after as a San Diego Breast Implants Revision Plastic Surgeon for his skill with Breast Implant Revisions (the process of correcting breast implant surgeries that yielded poor initial results) and his exceptional experience – he has performed many surgeries.
Women seek breast implant revision due to a variety of reasons including:
- Desire to change implant size. This can be for a larger or smaller breast implants.
- Change in breast shape after pregnancy, breast feeding or the result of time and gravity.
- breast implants deflation.
- breast implant rupture.
- asymmetry of the breasts
- they are not happy with the positioning of their breast implants
- because breast implants complications have occurred such as capsular contracture, rippling, bottoming out, fold malposition, and/or symmastia (otherwise known as “uniboob”)
- Or simply they just want the implants removed
In addition, many women are now opting to exchange their saline breast implants for silicone gel breast implants because silicone gel breast implants look and feel more like a natural breast compared to saline breast implants.
Please note: the FDA re-approved the use of silicone breast implants for plastic surgery and the rest of the United States in 2006.

In most cases, the original breast implants are removed during surgery and replaced with ones that have be approved in size and shape implants by the patient prior to the plastic surgery.
