Revision Breast Surgery


What Is Revision Breast Surgery?

Revision Breast Surgery is a term encompassing all forms of bespoke plastic surgery that aim to improve or restore results from previous procedures. Often the primary surgeons are unavailable or no longer practicing.

Revision breast surgery includes changing size, whether larger or smaller, restoring implant position, and removing aging implants either to prevent or treat implant-related complications. The breasts may or may not benefit from replacement implants depending on the patient’s desires and objectives. For example, many patients have the option to rejuvenate their breasts with a breast lift utilizing the patient’s own tissue.

Making The Decision About Revision Breast Surgery

Revision breast surgery can be challenging and time-consuming; other helpful tools may be suggested including Acellular Dermal Matrices and/or Fat Grafting. With the addition of these options, these surgeries can also be costly; Dr. Bovill will kindly request a photo and preferably an operative report prior to accepting a consultation such that your personal time is optimized. As a specialist in this area, Dr. Bovill has extensive experience in this type of surgery in both reconstructive and cosmetic patients. She will always give a very honest opinion and will suggest and indeed provide second opinions where appropriate.

Recovery After Revision Breast Surgery

Most patients go home on the day of surgery, although an overnight stay in the hospital is possible if preferred. After breast revision surgery, you can expect to experience some discomfort and swelling for about one to two weeks, depending on the technique used. Pain medication and cold compresses can help enhance your comfort during this time. Closely following postoperative instructions can assist in minimizing discomfort, facilitating healing, and reducing the likelihood of complications. Most patients take at least a week off from work to rest and recuperate. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Bovill will allow her to track your recovery and address any emerging complications early. She will let you know when you are cleared to engage in more vigorous exercise and heavy lifting.

What People Are Saying


Dr Bovill performed a breast augmentation for me and it's no exaggeration to say it changed my life. She was recommended by a friend who had had cancer reconstruction and she was every bit as caring and compassionate for me. I had done a lot of internet research and had so many questions but she took the time and patience to answer each and every one. We tried out several different sizes in her clinic before the surgery to make sure I was happy and ready. The surgery went smoothly and I am delighted with my new body and the confidence it has given me. Thank you Dr Bovill 🙂
