Breast Augmentation Revision: What Is It? And Why Is It Needed?

Breast augmentation revision is a very common cosmetic procedure that replaces your old breast implants with newer implants while also working to enhance the appearance of your breasts. 

This procedure is a great way to address any issues or concerns that you may have with your implants regarding their appearance. Oftentimes, other cosmetic procedures, like a breast lift, are performed simultaneously with breast augmentation revision to produce the best results. 

While breast augmentation revision is ultimately a personal decision, some factors can make you a good candidate for the procedure. 

Breast augmentation could be a good fit for you if you would like to do any of the following: 

  • Change implant size 
  • Change implant type 
  • Implant removal
  • Correct a previous breast augmentation that you are unhappy with 

While these are all cosmetic reasons, there may be medical reasoning behind undergoing this procedure. Trauma, disease, and other health complications are other things that could be the main catalyst in pursuing a breast augmentation revision. 

How Is Breast Augmentation Revision Performed? 

This procedure is performed similarly to breast augmentation. Dr. Brueck will get to the implants through the same incisions that were used for your breast augmentation surgery.

The length of the procedure depends entirely on what you are looking to get done and the condition that you are in before the procedure. Procedures that are looking to fix complications that have arisen from breast augmentation will take longer and require more complex techniques than procedures that are aiming to replace implants.
