Factors to consider Breast Revision   


Not satisfied with the size of the breasts​ 

-  The size of the breast is not appropriate for individual’s height 

and body; the breasts may look too big or too small based on the 

width of breasts.

-  Want to have bigger or smaller size of implant/breasts.

Not satisfied with the shape of the breasts​

-  Breast implants have shifted in position or are in an inappropriate position.

-  The width of both breasts is too wide or too narrow.   




Not satisfied with the texture of the breasts

-  Thin layer of tissue will normally cover the implants after implant surgery. If this layer abnormally thickens, this symptom is called 

capsular contracture; the shape of the breasts tightens, causes pain 

and makes the breast stiff. In this case, the implant is replaced or 

re-positioned or the capsule layer is removed.


-  The texture of the breasts is not ideal as the breast tissue gets thinner. Middle aged women who have had breast implants in their 

early ages can experience this symptom.


Breast implants have deflated or silicone implant has leaked

-  The saline bag can get wrinkled or shrunk as the saline solution leaks through micro holes of the bag. In case it is deflated, it can easily be noticeable as the volume will decrease severely. Silicone implant can also cause leaks through abrasions.

What makes beautiful breast

The very Golden-ratio of breast

The most ideal look is when the torso towards the front, the line from the middle point of collarbone and both lines from nipple points form equilateral triangle shape.



 The condition of perfect breast 


  • The breast size should not be oversized or undersized.
  • The breast should have a conical shape from the front and smooth curve line from the side.
  • Should have elastic waves by the body movement.
  • The breast should be spread out naturally with tilting little bit towards outside.

Smooth type

Textured type

Teardrop Type





 ​A very smooth, soft, and thin outer layer ​A rough thick outer layer ​A rough thick outer layer 



-Gives more natural movement of implants


-Massage is needed for 3-6 months to prevent capsular contracture.


-Less natural movement of implants


-Massage is not required


-Less possibility of capsular contracture as it can be autonomously fixed inside the breasts.

-Teardrop formula gives the most natural curve


-Massage is not required


-Less possibility of capsular contracture as it can be autonomously fixed inside the breasts.








 Breast Surgery Information 





Surgical Procedures 

The breast revision surgery usually involves repeating the cut in of the former incision but the site of incision can also be re-located. The surgical duration usually takes longer than the former surgery, as unexpected bleeding or firm scar tissue might be discovered. If the surgery is performed with replacing same/smaller implants, the surgery will remove the former one and replace it with a new one. Otherwise the surgery will broaden the space in order to insert the implant and place it properly.  


Recovery Period 

Wearing nursing bras is required and medication which prevents capsular contracture can be prescribed.

Recovery period varies, but recovery can be faster than the former one, as the space for the breast implant is usually secured from the former surgery and breast tissue is looser.  



 Pre-operation Care



​Please let the staffs know if there is any side effects on particular medicine, illness and general anesthesia history.  


Need considerate control on medicine a week before surgery. Please let the staffs know any medicine intake history. At any case, do not smoke before the surgery.


By the types of anesthesia, any food and water intake is prohibited for 4 hours (8 hours for general anesthesia) before the surgery. Do NOT eat or drink anything by instructions. 


​By the types of surgery, shower is not allowed until doctor’s permission. 

 Post-operational Care




May strong muscle strain occur, though will be released naturally. 




Will be instructed about food intake and fasting after the surgery by the type of anesthesia (no more than a day).




Smoking and drinking will irritate recovery. Especially smoking may cause possibilities of diverse side effects of surgery; please quit smoking for at least 2 weeks before and after the surgery.




After the surgery, any capsular contracture and inflammation may be caused, doctor will instruct on taking antibiotics, and implants elimination can be instructed by cases.
