In brief: Breast revision

Breast revision surgery is usually an aesthetic "revision" surgery of the breast, most often a "redo" after breast augmentation.
Sometimes "adding" a breast lift (mastopexy), or removing and replacing implants (up or down sizing). Revisions also occur with breast reconstruction but that is still referred to as breast reconstruction (even it is is a revision).

A breast revision is performed to improve the cosmetic appearance of a breast that has previously had surgery.
For example, a revision of a breast that has already undergone augmentation with an implant. There can be a number of reasons for the surgery. http://www.dassmd.com/breast-augmentation/breast-augmentation-revision-los-angeles.html.
