Generally, you need to replace breast implants every 10-20 years. Even before their “expiration date,” implants can change with your body, and you may feel dissatisfied with how they appear. But what is a breast revision? 

What Is A Breast Revision?

Board-certified cosmetic surgeon Dr. Frank L. Stile offers breast revision surgery to remove and replace implants. The procedure is primarily similar to breast augmentation, which Dr. Stile also performs. A new implant can improve the appearance of the breasts, along with a breast lift if the patient desires. 


Sometimes, scar tissue can form around the breast implant. This is called capsular contracture, and a thickened implant capsule causes it. Breast revision can be performed with a capsulotomy, in which Dr. Stile removes the scar tissue and treats both the patient and the breast implant pocket antibiotics. He then inserts the replacement implants into the breasts.

What Is The Recovery Process Like? 

Compared to breast augmentation surgery, breast revision has a similar recovery process. Breast revision patients will be reinformed about how to ensure their best recovery, including how to properly care for dressings

You should expect swelling and bruising for the first couple of weeks after surgery. After breast revision surgery, patients should avoid strenuous activity but still get up as much as possible to promote blood circulation and better healing. 

What Results Will I See? 

Breast revision surgery can help women feel more confident in the appearance of their breasts. After six weeks, the swelling will mostly subside, and the breasts can start to settle into their new shape and feel softer. 


Am I A Good Candidate For A Breast Revision? 

You may be a good candidate for breast revision surgery for both aesthetic and individual health. Some reasons you can be a good candidate for breast revision are: 

  • You want to change the size and shape of your breasts
  • Changing the type of implant
  • A ruptured implant 
  • Double Bubble
  • Capsular contracture
  • Wrinkles in the breast or breast rippling
