Revision Breast Surgery

Revision breast surgery is a surgical procedure that corrects or improves the results of a previous breast surgery.

Revision breast surgery may be necessary in cases where the initial surgery has resulted in complications such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, asymmetry or simply if you desire a change in breast size or shape.

Revision breast surgery can address issues such as:

  • Asymmetry
  • Incorrect implant size
  • Incorrect implant placement
  • Changes in breast shape or position over time
