Secondary Breast Augmentation


A secondary breast augmentation also known as a breast implant replacement or revision is a procedure to remove or replace your existing implants and make adjustments to the size and shape of your breasts. Dr. Sof will also discuss with you the management of the implant capsule, whether it needs to be released, removed partially or removed completely as part of the procedure.

Dr Sofiane Rimouche is a specialist in secondary breast augmentation. Please be aware that Implant replacement or revision surgery is more challenging than primary a breast augmentation. Dr Sof will discuss the procedure in full with you during you’re consultation and answer any questions you may have.

The following five steps will support your recovery


It is vital all of our patients closely follow these steps

"Dr. Sof is a very professional, informative and caring doctor. He made me feel happy and extremely comfortable with my chosen treatment".


Following your initial surgery you should have been advised, that your breast implants aren’t designed to last forever and eventually they would need to be replaced. Implants do not have a specific lifespan. It is important to remember that although you may not have experienced any issues, it is still highly recommended you have your implants checked by a plastic surgeon around 10 years after your initial surgery.

It is not necessary for you to return to your original surgeon for a replacement or revision. Your surgery can be performed by any qualified plastic surgeon, however, we recommended seeking out a surgeon who has specific experience in the areas of replacement or revision due to the increased complexity or the procedure.
Dr Sof is a specialist in secondary breast surgery and will discuss all options available to you during your initial consultation.

Although everyone’s different, here’s a rough guide to recovery after your surgery: Same day or next day – you’ll be able to leave hospital and should take one to two weeks off work | One to two weeks – stitches removed unless they’ve dissolved | One to two weeks – may be able to drive (check with your car insurance company) | One to two weeks – back to work, depending on your job | Six weeks – back to normal activities, including exercise | Six to 12 weeks – your breasts will start to look and feel more natural | Up to 12 weeks – wear a support bra for 24 hours a day | Up to one year – keep your breast scars out of direct sunlight

Primary breast augmentation surgery refers to the initial procedure to enhance breast size and shape using implants or fat grafting. Secondary breast augmentation, also known as revision surgery, is performed to address complications or achieve desired changes following a previous breast augmentation procedure. This may involve replacing implants, correcting asymmetry, or revising the results of the initial surgery.

The timing for secondary breast augmentation surgery depends on individual circumstances, such as the reason for revision and the extent of healing from the initial procedure. Dr. Sof will assess your specific situation during a consultation to determine the appropriate timing for revision surgery.
