Breast Implant Revision

Implant Replacement

The goal of breast implant revision surgery is to replace old breast implants with new implants.

Who is a good candidate for breast implant revision?

Breast implant revision surgery is intended for patients who have had a breast augmentation in the past and are now unhappy with their implants or concerned about the condition of their implants. This procedure can address those concerns by replacing the existing implants with new implants.

Who is a good candidate for breast implant revision surgery?

In general, you may be a good breast implant revision candidate if:

  • You are unhappy with size, shape or appearance of your breast implants
  • You are concerned about the integrity or condition of your implants
  • You are physically healthy and at a stable weight
  • You have realistic expectations
  • You are a nonsmoker

If you're considering surgery, spend some time reviewing breast implant revision surgery photos and learning about what to expect during recovery. Preparation ahead of time helps patients have reasonable expectations and a smoother recovery.
