Breast Implant Revision
The goal of breast implant revision surgery is to replace old breast implants with new implants or simply remove breast implants. Often the goal is also to change or improve the appearance of the breasts while updating the implant material, which could include:
- A concurrent breast lift or reduction
- Reshaping the breast implant pocket to reposition the implant on the chest
- Either increasing or decreasing the size, shape or style of the breast implant
The desire to have breast implant revision surgery can be because of any of the following reasons:
- Desire to change the size of the breasts
- Pain from capsular contracture
- Concern about rupture or migration of implant
- Change from saline to silicone or different style of implant
- Silicone round smooth implants
- All surgical, private hospital, and anaesthesia fees (general anaesthetic administered by an ANZCA-qualified anaesthetist)
- Post-op appointments at all milestones: 1 week; 6 weeks; 12 weeks; 6 months; and 2 years
- All hospitalisation: Expect a 4-5 hour stay (day procedure) however in some circumstances an overnight stay may be necessary
- Comprehensive consultation with surgeon
Note that tear-drop/anatomical implants carry an extra fee – see our price page.

Every year thousands of women and men undergo successful cosmetic surgery and are happy with the outcomes. However as with any surgery you should be aware of potential risks. These will be fully discussed with you. It’s important that you address all your questions with your surgeon.
The information on our website is general in nature. It will not apply to each and every patient and is not intended as a substitute for medical advice.
We advise you to speak to a consultant and see a surgeon in-person to assess what surgery is most suitable for you. Plastic and cosmetic surgery results can vary significantly between patients and all surgery carries risks, some minor some serious. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
