In brief: Breast revision

Yes, you can definitely have revisional surgery following breast augmentation, but i recommend waiting at least 6 months to allow your breast implants to "settle" and fall into their more natural shape.

In brief: Yes, it is possible

Certainly, many people do for a variety of reasons ranging from removal, removal with replacement for larger/smaller implants, transition from saline to silicone or vice versa.

In brief: Revision after Aug

Breast revision after breast augmentation can be and is done routinely especially if there are issues related to symmetry, volume, position or capsular contractures.
See your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.

In brief: Yes.

Revisionary breast augmentation surgery is a commonly performed procedure.
Exactly what procedure will improve a patient's situation will depend on the patient's specific concerns and goals. Careful communication between patient/surgeon is one of the keys to successful outcome. Plastic surgeons' experience with revisionary breast surgery is also an important determinant of successful outcome.

In brief: Yes, If you need to

Revision breast surgery is not uncommon.
I tell all of my patients that although i want them to be happy with their breast surgery for a long time, it is highly likely they will have a revision surgery or more in their lifetime. It could be after childbirth, weight loss or gain, implant deflation or a desire to change the size. It is important to see a board-certified plastic surgeon.

In brief: Yes

Surgery is not a "one and done" sort of thing.
If you are unhappy and you have allowed the appropriate amount of time to allow your breasts to heal (approx. 6 months) then you can go back and have a second procedure. With the right surgeon, it is uncommon to have an early revision. An experienced surgeon can help you reach your goals, the first time.
