Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery, has become a specialty unto itself. While most women will never require Breast Augmentation Revision, a large minority will. The exact number is difficult to pin down; however, studies have indicated that in the ten years after breast augmentation, as many as 25%, will undergo a second breast augmentation related surgery.
Elective Breast Implant Revision Surgery
Many times there is no complication, and the primary motivation for breast augmentation revision surgery is to change the size of the implants. Perhaps the most common breast implant revision surgery is to replace breast implants with a larger pair. This is the reason I place so much emphasis on defining the goal size for breast augmentation before surgery. Even so, minds and goals can change with time.
Non-Elective Breast Implant Revision Surgery
Other times Breast Implant Revision Surgery is less volitional, and may be due to gravity (requiring a breast lift), breast implant failure (breast implant deflation or breast implant rupture) or capsular contracture (tightening of the nature scar that surrounds the implant causing movement or firmness of the breast implants).

Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery requires a careful analysis of the existing problem, a thoughtful discussion about the good (and bad) aspects of all available treatments, the ability to adapt the plan to any new findings found during surgery, and a careful recovery, to speed you return to daily life.
