When Is Breast Revision Surgery Needed?

Breast implants and other breast augmentation surgeries, informally known as "boob jobs," are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. While increasing cup size can greatly improve one's self-confidence, breast revision surgery may sometimes be necessary for a number of reasons.

For instance:

  • If a breast augmentation was not performed correctly the first time, a follow-up procedure can help to correct problems.
  • In some cases, women may decide to have a breast revision to increase the size of their implants.
  • A breast revision can be used to replace original breast implants, which are usually only good for about 10 years, after which time they will need to be removed or replaced.
  • In the event implants deflate or rupture, breast revision surgery may also be necessary. 

If you are considering having a breast revision, it is important to have realistic expectations and be in good overall health.

How Long Does Breast Revision Take and What Is the Recovery Like?

A breast revision generally involves the removal of old implants which are replaced with new ones; however, the reason for such replacement will dictate exactly how the surgery is carried out, as well as the time involved.

In different cases, the procedure may include but is not limited to:

  • An increase in implant size
  • Removal of scar tissue
  • Changes to the shape of the breasts
  • Alterations to the location of the pocket in which the implants are placed.
  • Some women also request a breast lift to correct sagging breasts which can be carried out in the same session.

To ensure your comfort during the procedure, a breast revision is performed under general anesthesia and may take between one and four hours to complete.

Regarding your recovery, it should be noted that:

  • Your breasts will have a gauze dressing applied which needs to remain as per your surgeon's advice.
  • Drainage tubes are often put in place to prevent fluid from building in your breasts.
  • You may be prescribed oral painkillers to alleviate any discomfort you feel.
  • You will need to limit your activities during the first few days following your procedure; any heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks following your surgery.
  • The length of time you need to take off from work will be determined by the nature of your work.
  • Be aware that it could take several weeks to see the full results of your procedure.
  • Numbness and tingling are common following a breast revision surgery, particularly around the incision site. This is only temporary and should go away within the next several months.
