Rebuild. Restore. Renew.
Although most patients experience years of satisfaction following breast augmentation, breast implants are not lifetime devices and patients may require corrective procedures to enhance the original breast augmentation that may have declined aesthetically during the aging process. Breast implant revision, also called corrective breast augmentation, consists of removing a breast implant and replacing it with a new implant or correcting an already existing breast augmentation.
Improvement You Feel Every Day
There are several reasons you might consider breast implant revision surgery: You could have experienced complications during or after your initial procedure. For example, you may have had an infection or other physical side effects following your procedure that requires attention. Another reason is that you aren’t happy with the way your new breasts look. A third reason is if there was something wrong with your original implants and you want to replace them with new ones. Finally, some women change their minds about what size they want and decide to go larger or smaller and can change this through a revision procedure.
The Right Look for You
If you are dissatisfied with the results of prior breast augmentation, you may be a potential candidate for breast implant replacement. As with any cosmetic procedure, ideal candidates will possess good physical and psychological health and a realistic outlook for the results of their procedures.
"If you are not satisfied with a breast augmentation you received or if you want something changed about it, you shouldn't settle. The technology of cosmetic surgery is constantly advancing, and you should avail yourself of these advancements to be sure you get the exact look you want. We specialize in breast implant revision and breast implant replacement surgery and don't believe there is a case we couldn't handle."
— Dr. Jules Feledy and Dr. Eric Maiorino
“After 15 years with breast implants, I needed to have the breast implants replaced or removed. Belmont helped me get them replaced with new implants, and I decided to go down a size. I didn't realize how easy this process was, but for anyone with breast implants who maybe wants something a little different, it is worth it."
During the consultation process, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will listen and examine the aspects you want to be revised, and a determination will be made on how best to approach the procedure. They will work with you to determine what you want to be revised, for example:
The final aim is to get you breasts that are natural in appearance, look the way you want, and have a satisfactory result based on your goals.
Details Make the Difference
If you are having your implants removed and replaced, Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino will likely use the same incision site as your original surgery. The implant will be removed at the site of the incision, and a new implant will be inserted (if desired). The incisions will then be closed with sutures and covered with surgical dressings. A typical breast implant revision will be completed in less than two hours. In most cases, surgery will be performed under general anesthesia.
Focus on Care
For most patients, the recovery process will be very similar to their initial breast augmentation. You are likely to experience some swelling, bruising, or discomfort following surgery. Dr. Feledy or Dr. Maiorino may prescribe pain medication to alleviate any significant discomfort. In most cases, you should be able to resume normal activities one to two weeks post-surgery.
A Second Chance
The final results of your breast implant revision will greatly depend on the issues being addressed with the ultimate goal of creating a symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing breast. Depending on the degree of surgery required, your final results may take several weeks to months to fully be seen once the swelling and bruising subsides.

All surgical procedures, including corrective breast augmentation, present a certain degree of risk. In general, corrective breast augmentation is considered safe, and complications are rare. Complications may include bleeding, infection, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring, or asymmetry.
