Breast Revision Procedure

Breast revision surgery at the Boston Center for Plastic Surgery involves a comprehensive process to address and correct issues with previous breast augmentation procedures.


Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During this appointment, the surgeon will evaluate your concerns, assess the current condition of the breasts, and discuss the desired outcomes. This is your opportunity to ask questions and gain a clear understanding of the procedure.

Based on the consultation, your surgeon will create a customized surgical plan tailored to your needs. The surgical plan will be designed to achieve balanced, natural-looking results while addressing your aesthetic concerns.

We prioritize your safety and comfort above all else. This is why we conduct all breast revision procedures in our advanced outpatient surgical center. Our facility is equipped with the latest technology to ensure the highest safety and efficiency standards during your surgical experience.

The specific steps of the surgery will depend on the individual's needs and may include implant removal or replacement, correction of implant position, or reshaping of breast tissue. Our surgeons will use advanced techniques to optimize the aesthetic outcome while prioritizing patient safety and comfort.


The initial days following the procedure may involve discomfort, swelling, and bruising. During this time, it is essential to:

  • Follow the prescribed pain medication regimen
  • Rest and avoid strenuous activities
  • Attend all scheduled follow-up appointments
  • Wear a supportive surgical bra as recommended
  • Maintain open communication with our medical team 

In the following weeks, gradual improvement can be expected as swelling subsides and the breasts begin to settle into their new shape. Light activities can be gradually resumed, but it's vital to continue avoiding intense physical exertion. By adhering to post-operative guidelines and maintaining open communication with our medical team, you can optimize your breast revision recovery and achieve the desired results.
