An unsatisfactory breast surgery can leave you more dissatisfied with your breast appearance than ever before. You may be unhappy with the results of your breast augmentation, or complications may be distorting the appearance of your breasts. No matter the reason for your unhappiness, correction surgery may be necessary to provide you with the breasts you desire. Breast revision surgery can improve the size, shape, and placement of your breast implants for more attractive and natural-looking breast augmentation results.

Reasons for Breast Revision
Changing Implant Placement
- The placement of your implants (submuscular or subglandular) can affect the overall look and positioning of your breasts
- If your breasts sit too high or lack an attractive shape, changing their position can help
- In most cases, women choose to move their implants to a submuscular placement to create a more natural breast slope
- If you are choosing to change to a submuscular placement, you may experience more discomfort during recovery that you did following your original augmentation
