When Should I Consider Breast Revision Surgery?

When Should I Consider Breast Revision SurgeryWhen you hear the term “breast revision surgery,” your mind may immediately think “failed breast augmentation.”  The truth is, breast revision surgery is performed for a variety of reasons, some of which have nothing to do with an unsatisfactory breast augmentation.  Yes, there are cases where an initial breast augmentation has left a woman with less than satisfactory results, and in cases such as these, breast revision surgery is necessary to correct those disappointing results.  However, there are several other reasons that a woman would elect to undergo breast revision surgery.  These reasons are just as important to discuss and recognize, so that you understand the options available to you.

  1. Lifestyle changes have altered the appearance of your breasts

Breast implants are designed to last many years.  They will remain the constant, but our bodies will not.  Over time, you will experience changes to your body as a result of natural aging, as well as your lifestyle.  These changes can affect the look of your initial breast augmentation, resulting in the desire to revise your current appearance.  Changes such as weight loss/gain, pregnancy, and aging can alter the look, feel, and placement of your breast implants.  When this takes place, it is important to consider breast revision surgery.  With breast revision surgery, I can correct the placement of your implants, change the size – if desired, and enhance your chest area to match your current needs and aesthetic desires.

  1. You want to change the size of your current implants

One of the most common reasons for breast revision surgery is to modify the size of the original breast implants.  Over the course of time, you may find that your size preference has changed.  Perhaps large implants no longer fit your lifestyle, or you’ve decided that your original implant size was too small or too large.  There can be a number of reasons that a woman would desire to modify the size of her breast implant, and breast revision surgery accomplishes this.

  1. You want to change the type of implant you have

The technology and science around breast augmentation and implant types continues to advance.  These advancements have made different styles of breast implants, such as cohesive gel (gummy bear), round implants, and textured implants, available to women considering breast augmentation.  Naturally, some women desire to update the type and style of their current breast implants to meet their changing aesthetic needs.  If you wish to change or update the style of your breast implant, breast revision surgery can provide you with the solution you’re looking for.


The decision to move forward with breast revision surgery is a sensitive and personal matter.  There are many reasons – medical and aesthetic – that a person would elect for this type of surgery.  This is a unique surgery that I tailor to meet the needs of each of my patients.  Your goals are important to me, and I will strive to ensure that you feel confident throughout the entire process of your breast revision surgery.  If you would like to schedule a consultation to discuss the options available to you for breast revision surgery, please contact me, Dr. Michael Mirzabeigi.
