Breast Revision

Breast Revision Model

Over time, many women experience physical changes like pregnancy and weight fluctuations that can cause their implants to look unflattering. Others may encounter medical complications, such as implant rupture or capsular contracture, that can cause their breasts to look distorted. Breast revision is a surgical procedure that restores the appearance of a woman’s breasts or alleviates uncomfortable side effects that may have developed after a previous breast augmentation.

What Can Breast Revision Improve?

Unsatisfying Results

While most women are thrilled with their augmented breasts, unfortunately, some patients are unhappy with the results. Breast revision can modify the size and shape of your implants to help you achieve your aesthetic needs.

Post-Op Complications

Some women experience medical complications after their breast augmentation that can result in implant rupture or the development of capsular contracture. Fortunately, breast revision can address these issues to restore the appearance of your breasts.

Damaged Confidence

Many women whose breasts have changed due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or age may feel self-conscious. Breast revision surgery can not only restore your breasts to their former appearance, but it can also improve your confidence.

Your Breast Revision Treatment

During your consultation, Dr. Wald will examine the condition of your breasts to determine the best option for your procedure. Ideal candidates must be in good health, nonsmokers, and realistic about their expectations.


  • Breast revision surgery is performed on an outpatient basis under local or general anesthesia.
  • Your procedure can take a few hours to complete, depending on the level of correction needed.
  • The extent of your breast revision surgery and incisions will be based on the reason for the surgery:
    • Change in breast size
    • Replacing ruptured implants
    • Dr. Wald will also take into account your physical and aesthetic needs.

2 Weeks After

You will be able to return to work and resume all non-strenuous activities.
