For a woman, the shape, size, and feel of their breasts can have a significant impact. It is so much more than just the physical side of things: when women are deeply unhappy with their breasts it can cause a whole host of other problems. There may be a lack of self-confidence, anxiety around being intimate, or other mental health issues that develop. This is perhaps why breast surgery is now the most common form of cosmetic surgery in the UK.
Like all forms of cosmetic surgery, breast surgery comes with its own risks. There are cases where women are disappointed with the outcome and this is usually down to seeking the lowest price rather than the best surgeon. When this is the case, corrective breast revision is the option available to correct this. It is not always down to mistakes made during surgery. There are occasions when it is purely down to the passage of time: breast implants rarely last a lifetime and, with age, natural sagging will still occur. In this article, we are going to take a look at what breast revision surgery is and when it is a feasible option.
Breast revision surgery involves revisiting previous breast augmentation. The procedure seeks to correct issues that have arisen from the original surgery. It could be that a woman still has uneven, asymmetrical, breasts. The original surgery may have completely failed to live up to a woman’s expectations. Breast augmentation revision is an opportunity for a woman to try and achieve the look that she is satisfied with. A chance to correct previous issues and disappointments. Some of the issues that corrective breast revision aims to resolve include:

As well as surgery that seeks to enlarge the breasts, many women look for their breasts to be reduced in size. This could be because of discomfort, back pain, or being self-conscious. Following the reduction, there may be issues that need to be revisited. It could be that:
As with most cosmetic procedures, when it comes to breast augmentation revision, there is no one size fits all approach. Breast revision surgery can be relatively simple or it can be highly complex. The approach taken will depend upon the personal circumstances of the women involved. A consultation with an expert surgeon is the best way to establish how this surgery could work for you. Your surgeon will discuss any issues that you have as well as looking at what your expectations are.
We will look at the types of treatments involved in more detail a little later, but depending upon the desired outcome, you can expect these solutions to be considered:

A woman’s decision to have breast surgery is never one that is taken lightly. An informed choice is made and, guided by an expert, a woman has a level of expectation as to what the end results will be. No one chooses surgical options unless they are the only way of achieving the desired results and no one follows this route expecting to need further surgery early on. There are times when the need for breast revision surgery is down to mistakes made by a less than competent surgeon. That is why we advise only seeking breast augmentation surgery in the UK by surgeons who are fully qualified and experienced. It is also the case that, at times, the need for breast revision surgery is unavoidable. Corrective breast revision becomes advisable for women who experience:
There are also complications caused by implants that can be resolved through corrective breast revision. These include:
The type of breast revision surgery that will be suitable for you will depend upon the issues that you are experiencing and the result that you are hoping for. Our surgeons can offer guidance so that you can find the best solution, but here is a look at the options available:
Breast implant replacement
It may be that you have experienced complications with breast implants such as a rupture. It could also be the case that you are seeking to increases/reduce the size of your breasts or trying to have issues with symmetry corrected. This is where breast implant replacement is likely to help.
Breast implant removal
It could be that you have experienced issues with breast implants or have been less than satisfied with the results. In this case, you may seek the removal of breast implants without there being any replacements.
Breast lift revision
Although breast surgery will enhance your breasts, your body can still not escape the ageing process. This means that breasts will still change in appearance as you age. Breast lift revision surgery is an effective way of addressing this.
Surgeons will always do their best to minimise scarring following any procedure. There are times when women may be left with scarring that is uncomfortable or, in their mind, unsightly. There is a range of options available to reduce/remove scarring.
This involves fat being removed from other areas of your body through liposuction. The fat is then cleaned before being injected into the breasts. Fat transfer is used as a way to improve the contouring of the breasts and give an overall more pleasing appearance.
