What Is Breast Augmentation Revision?
Breast augmentation and other plastic surgery procedures can culminate in less-than-optimal results, leading to dissatisfaction. This may be the product of complications during surgery or several different circumstances that can arise. In fact, you may have had a great result with which you were completely satisfied, only to see the result change over time because of aging or weight loss. Women often seek Dr. Roth for corrective plastic surgery to improve these results.
Common corrections made during breast augmentation revision include:
- Updating implant size, placement, or material.
- Replacing older implants with newer models.
- Resolving complications such as implant rupture or capsular contracture.
- Improving cosmetic results to create a more attractive and natural-looking outcome.

How Soon Is Too Soon for Breast Revision?
It’s generally important to wait until your initial results have fully taken shape before deciding on a revision. This typically takes about a year. After that, you can remove your implants, exchange them, or revise your results at any time.
Why Choose Dr. Roth for Your Breast Revision Surgery?
Revision surgery cases can be complicated and require a surgeon with vast knowledge and experience with secondary surgeries. Dr. Roth is well versed in revision surgery, as he performs many of these procedures each year. Women often seek him out to revise breast procedures such as augmentations and breast lifts. He also performs secondary procedures on every part of the body, including revisions of tummy tucks and other body contouring procedures.
What Is Recovery Like After Breast Augmentation Revision?
Healing directly following a surgical revision can take a few weeks. You’ll likely experience some bruising or swelling, and possibly some discomfort. Most people can return to work within a few weeks.
Healing continues well past that initial stage of recovery into the next several weeks until the body is fully and properly healed. At this time, you can resume your usual workout routine, including strenuous exercise.
A Few More Breast Augmentation Revision FAQs
Q: Is breast revision more expensive than a first-time breast augmentation?
A: In most cases, yes, breast revision costs more than an initial breast augmentation. This procedure is more complex as it involves both the removal and repositioning or replacement of the implants as opposed to simply placing implants in a new breast pocket.
Q: Who pays for breast augmentation revision?
A: There’s a slight chance your revision will be determined medically necessary, which may qualify you for insurance coverage. If your surgeon believes they have made an error that needs correcting, they may offer to pay for part of the surgery. However, for the most part, you are responsible for the cost of your breast augmentation revision.
Q: Can breast implant revision achieve lift?
A: Breast implant revision involves some implant repositioning that may create a more lifted look. However, if you have significant sagging or drooping in your breasts, it’s best to combine your revision with a breast lift to fully correct this and achieve results you love.
Q: Is breast implant revision painful?
A: Breast implant revision itself isn’t painful because it is done while you are fully asleep under general anesthesia. However, with any surgery, it’s normal to feel some soreness during recovery. Many people find the recovery process is even shorter and easier than their initial breast augmentation recovery.
Q: Can you drive the day after a breast implant revision?
A: You will not be able to drive as long as you are on prescription pain medication, as they impair your abilities. You can drive once you have stopped taking these pain medications, which is often about a week after surgery.
Q: How soon after breast augmentation can I get a revision?
A: You can get a revision as soon as your implants have fully settled, most of your swelling has subsided, and you are healed completely. It takes about 6 months for your results to fully take shape, so it’s best not to make any changes before that point.
