Revision Breast Augmentation


Revision breast augmentation corrects problems that result from a previous breast augmentation surgery or dissatisfaction from the results of a previous breast augmentation. Women may also seek revision breast augmentation because their personal cosmetic goals change. The other reasons a patient might consider a revision breast augmentation include:

  • Changing the size, shape or position of the breast implant.
  • Giving the breasts a more natural and symmetrical shape and feel.
  • Correcting a condition known as “capsular contracture” that results from scar tissue around the implants.
  • Correcting a double bubble (a crease that can appear across the lower part of the breast giving the appearance of 2 breast mounds)
  • Leaking or ruptured implants.
  • Hardening or rippling of implants.
  • Deflation of saline implants.
  • Dissatisfaction with a previous augmentation.

Dr Lyon commonly sees women who are unhappy with their current breast augmentation


or had their surgery overseas where the quality of the augmentation did not meet their expectations. There are many considerations that should go into having your breast augmentation and it is essential to communicate these to your surgeon so you can be sure to get the results you want.


A revision breast augmentation can be a more involved and difficult procedure than an initial breast augmentation, due mainly to the changes resulting from the initial operation, however Dr Lyon will discuss your issues and what your expectations and desired results are and give you some realistic advice on what can and cannot be achieved from a revision breast augmentation surgery.


Dr Lyon is aware that revisional breast surgery can be an extremely emotional one. Often the reasons for having to undergo a revision breast surgery is because of a previous bad experience with the first augmentation. Dr Lyon and his staff will do everything they can to ensure the process and journey for your revisional breast surgery is smooth and successful.


Dr Bill Lyon will discuss the reasons for your revision breast augmentation, your goals and desired results from your revision breast augmentation, expected recovery, possible risks and everything else associated with your revision breast augmentation at your consultation.
