What is breast re-augmentation surgery?

Breast re-augmentation surgery is a highly specialised procedure that is designed to alter and change the appearance of a previous breast enlargement. There’s a wide number of reasons to want to change your implants, from issues with implants themselves through to the physical appearance of your breasts and our surgeons have spent years helping patients overcome the complications of previous implant surgeries.

Some of the more popular reasons for a re-augmentation include;

  • Asymmetrical Breasts – Natural changes within the breast itself or to the implant itself can result in a clear and visible asymmetry to the breasts. During a breast re-augmentation procedure, asymmetrical breasts can be altered by replacing or adjusting the implants to give a more even and natural appearance.
  • Shape of the breasts – If the breast shape that has been created previously isn’t what you expected, a re-augmentation surgery can correct the issues that you are having to create a beautiful look that you are happy with.
  • Issues with the implant – Whether it’s visible rippling or deflation to the implant, re-augmentation surgery can allow you to adjust and resolve the issues. This can be something that is solvable with an adjustment to the placement of the individual implant or could require the replacement or refilling of an implant to ensure that it looks the way it should.
  • Capsular Contracture – This is the biggest reason for women to consider a breast re-augmentation surgery. Following the surgery, it’s common for some scar tissue to form around the implants because of the natural healing processes within the body, however with capsular contracture the tissue becomes rigid and painful. A re-augmentation either allows the surgeon to release the scar tissue and open up the implant pocket or remove the scar tissue completely, giving a softer appearance and feel to the breast.
  • Change in size – Last but not least, sometimes it’s possible to go too large or not large enough during the initial enhancement procedure and they will need replacing to match the ideal design and proportions that are required.

What should you expect with breast re-augmentation surgery?

You should have similar expectations to your previous breast enlargement surgery as a breast re-augmentation is essentially undergoing the same procedure (depending on exactly what you’re having done), just a few years down the line. Although you will have undergone a breast enlargement procedure previously, there are a number of questions that you may not have had answered last time or that you have thought of since. Some of the more commonly asked queries are answered below, but if you’re still stuck then we are happy to answer any questions that you have!

Our pricing for breast implants starts at £3995, however this is just a base point as every woman’s breasts are different and so are their reasons for a breast re-augmentation. One woman may have had a drastic increase and require her implants replacing due to deflation, whereas another woman could require one as her implants have simply reached the end of their life cycle.

Breast implants don’t last forever, they actually have a general lifespan of between ten and twenty years before they either need to be removed or replaced. There are a number of other reasons, both good and bad, for a woman to require a breast re-augmentation including altering a shape that was previously created during an enlargement, issues with the implant itself, wanting to change the size of the implant and capsular contracture (which is the technical name for an issue that can affect the breasts).

There are two kinds of breast implants that are considered safe and these are saline and silicone implants. The type of implant to be used is entirely dependent on your ideal goals, but both saline and silicone based implants are safe for augmentation or reconstruction.

It’s a little more difficult to say for definite yes or no with a re-augmentation surgery as there could be some form of existing problem from a previous breast enlargement. However, most women will still be able to breastfeed if they choose following a breast implant surgery as it doesn’t actually involve the milk ducts or the areas of the breast involved in milk production. There are some things during surgery such as the type of incision used and whether or not the implant is consider over or under the muscle, but this can be discussed with your surgeon prior to your surgery if you are planning on breastfeeding to ensure that you are still able to.

You can always choose to replace your implants with a different size and it’s something that a lot of women choose to do. Following a surgery and the healing process, it’s possible that you aren’t entirely happy with the new shape of your breasts and this is one of the most common reasons that women choose to either increase or decrease the size of their breasts.

Although in most cases the breast implants are replaced during a breast re-augmentation surgery, it is entirely possible to undergo re-augmentation surgery to reposition the implant or the nipple without having your existing implants replaced.

In some quite extreme cases it can do, but the majority of breast re-augmentation surgeries do not leave you with more scars as your surgeon will make their incisions where the previous augmentation was carried out.
