Because breast implant revision surgery is truely a customized surgery, the steps for the procedure will be tailored to your needs. Sometime the implants are removed and replaced. Other times the implants can simply be repositioned. It is important that you schedule an in person consultation to discuss the specific steps of your procedure.

It depends. The original incision that was used to place the breast implants is often used to remove and replace the implants. You may not end up with another scar at all. However, if you need a breast lift or we need to use another approach you will have to have another incision made. These incisions usually heal beautifully so even if a new incision is required most patients are still pleased with the look of their breasts.
