Reoperation rates have been 20% for the past 15-20 years in breast augmentation. Is this still currently true?


Yes. In fact, 20% reoperation rates have been commonplace in every FDA PMA study submitted over the past 15 years; however, better results and lower reoperation rates are clearly possible. With proper patient education objective implant selection using appropriate clinical analysis, meticulous surgical technique and detailed postoperative instructions. There have been several peer-reviewed, published studies and presentations in the past five years, which demonstrate the reoperation rates between 1 and 3% are clearly possible and, in my opinion, represent a new era in this procedure.
