Breast revision surgery is normally required due to more than one factor. Shape, asymmetry, and capsular contracture are often the complex causes. Therefore, it is important to address the dissatisfaction of the previous surgery through a full consultation at the time of reoperation. Because breast revision surgery can be difficult the second time around, it is important that a surgical specialist with a higher level of experience does the secondary surgery.

When the location of the implants change, from the position they were originally placed in, the implants may be removed and replaced with something different in Breast revision surgery. The implant is primarily removed through the armpit or, if the patient has severely thick skin, an incision is made in the areola or underneath the breast.
