What is Breast Revision Surgery?

When we talk about breast revision, we refer to the procedure that aims to correct health or cosmetic issues with the breasts. The most common reason for this surgery is the replacement or removal of old implants that have finished their 10–15-year life. Other reasons for breast revision surgery may include:

  • Implant leakages
  • Capsular contracture
  • Overall dissatisfaction with the breasts
  • Autoimmune response due to the implant

If you have a medical problem with your implant, it is vital that you speak with your doctor immediately. This may result in the need for breast revision surgery.

Once your breast revision surgery is complete, you will usually undergo a downtime period of roughly 4-6 weeks whilst you recover. Once the first 2 weeks have passed, you may return to some daily activities; however, exercise should be held back until at least 4 weeks to promote recovery.
