Breast Revision

Poor breast augmentation results can be devastating because of the time and money you spent trying to achieve your ideal body. You may have chosen an under-qualified surgeon, picked the wrong implant type for your body, or developed uncontrollable complications post-surgery. In the end, the results are the same—a bustline doesn’t make you feel happy and confident. Breast revision surgery can remove or replace implants following an unsuccessful augmentation. Dr. Doezie works closely with all of his revision clients to develop a custom revision plan that will result in a beautiful breast appearance.

Things to Consider Before Deciding


Breast revision surgery is often performed on the same scale as an augmentation, and your recovery period may last just as long. If you are experiencing any of the above issues, it may be time to schedule your consultation with Dr. Doezie. The goal of breast revision surgery is to balance your aesthetic desires with your natural build to ensure beautiful, natural-looking breasts.

Frequently Asked Questions

When should I consider having breast revision surgery?

If you are dissatisfied with your breast appearance or are experiencing any pain or discomfort, breast revision may be right for you. Your breasts require six months to a year to fully heal from the primary augmentation, and you should allow your breasts to heal naturally before considering revision surgery. It is dependent on a case by case basis.

Will breast revision surgery prevent me from having complications in the future?

Breast revision surgery corrects current breast issues and can provide support to your breasts to minimize the risk of new issues developing. However, some issues, such as capsular contracture, can recur for unknown reasons. Routine follow-up appointments with Dr. Doezie will help ensure quality, long-term results.

How likely am I to need breast revision after my primary breast surgery?

Each woman is unique, and it can be impossible to tell which complications you may experience following your breast surgery. As many as 15 percent of women undergo revision surgery to correct a poor breast appearance or complications after breast augmentation.

What is the cost of breast revision surgery?

The cost of your breast revision will vary based on the type of correction you require. Depending on the reason for undergoing revision surgery, a portion may be covered by your implant manufacturer based on rupture or capsular contracture. Contact your implant manufacturer for additional information.

Do I need to have my implants replaced during breast revision?

Implants do not always need to be replaced to correct an unsatisfactory breast appearance. If your implants are intact and aren’t the reason for needing breast revision, then you should be able to keep your original implants.

Do I have to replace my breast implants every 10 years?

On average, women tend to have their breast implants replaced 10 years after their original breast augmentation due to preference changes, breast changes, or complications. However, replacing your implants every 10 years is not medically necessary. If you are satisfied with the look and feel of your breasts, there may be no need to replace them.
