Breast Implant Revision Q & A


What is a breast implant revision?

A breast implant revision is a cosmetic surgery used to modify or improve the appearance of your breasts by replacing old or damaged implants with new implants. 

Much like natural breasts, implants can change in their shape or size. They can also move around under your skin. Even if your implants haven’t changed, you may be unsatisfied with their material or some other aspect of how they turned out in the first place.

In any case, breast implant revision surgery allows you a second chance at getting a body that makes you feel self-confident. 

Many women choose to revisit their breast implants around 10 years after their augmentation surgery, as both their bodies and the technologies available for breast implants change significantly during that time. 

Why might I need a breast implant revision?

There are many reasons why you may wish to change, fix, or update your breast implants. Women often come to Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics seeking a breast implant revision because:

  • An implant ruptured
  • An implant migrated under their skin
  • They want to change the size of their breasts
  • They want to try another implant material
  • Their breasts changed appearance after weight fluctuations or pregnancy
  • Their implants changed in shape

Breast implant revision is a very personalized procedure, so you’ll want to talk to your surgeon about all of your concerns during the consultation. Your surgeon creates a surgical strategy plan to make the adjustments you need.

What should I expect during my breast implant revision surgery?

Your breast implant revision surgery may involve reshaping your implants, repositioning them, replacing them, or even a breast lift. Your surgeon details the steps in your procedure beforehand, as all breast implant revisions are slightly different. 

How should I prepare for my breast implant revision?

There are several steps you’ll need to take in preparation for your breast implant revision. Your surgeon may advise you to:

  • Get a mammogram or other imaging test
  • Stop taking certain medications
  • Stop smoking
  • Ask lots of questions
  • Arrange for a ride to and from your surgery
  • Set up your payment plan in advance, if needed

It’s also important for you to come to treatment with an open mind. Perfection is subjective and usually unattainable, but you’ll likely leave the surgery feeling better about your breast implants than when you arrived.
