Breast Augmentation Revision: Getting Bigger Implants

By Dr. Suzanne Yee on December 14, 2017


A breast implantBreast implant revision refers to a second breast augmentation surgery performed after the initial procedure. This revision surgery will involve the removal of the initial breast implants and the placement of new breast implants. This allows patients who regret their initial surgery to finally experience the results they hoped to achieve initially.

Many patients have come to our Little Rock plastic surgery center to get larger breast implants after being unsatisfied with the initial results of their augmentation. Let's explore this issue in more detail.

Problems When Breast Implants Are Too Small

There is a lot of second guessing about the final results of breast augmentation surgery when a person gets breast implants that are too small. While the increase in breast size may be noticeable, it may fail to be as dramatic as one would have hoped. What's more, the breast implants may not complement a person's curves or enhance their appearance as much as they'd hoped.

Many people who regret getting the smaller breast implants would prefer much more dramatic results from breast augmentation surgery. There's where a breast augmentation revision can be quite helpful and effective.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Implant Revision

Good candidates for breast implant revision are people who would like to increase the size of their breasts after an initial breast augmentation procedure failed to yield ideal results. They should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the surgical process and what is involved.

Picking the Right Size for the New Breast Implants

When picking new breast implants for the revision surgery, it's important that surgeons work closely with patients during the planning phase. Simply picking bigger breast implants may not give patients the results they want. During the consultation process, we can consider implant size, shape, composition, and placement. Taking all of these factors into account will allow a plastic surgeon to create a custom treatment plan the best meets the patient's aesthetic goals.

What to Expect During Surgery

A breast augmentation revision is performed much like a traditional breast augmentation. In fact, when possible, the incisions used for the initial breast augmentation procedure will be used to perform the revision surgery. If that is not possible, all efforts will be made to keep new incisions as small as possible.

Surgical Recovery and Healing

Recovery after a breast augmentation revision procedure is very similar to the recovery process after a normal breast augmentation surgery. Patients will need about two weeks off from work to fully recover. They will be instructed to get ample rest and to avoid strenuous physical activities as they heal. Surgical dressings and a surgical bra will need to be worn to support the breasts in the crucial early days of the recovery process.

The Results of Breast Implant Revision

After undergoing breast implant revision, many patients are satisfied with the results that are achieved. Their breasts will be larger, and the fuller bustline will generally add greater shapeliness to the patient's overall figure.
