The procedure to remove or replace breast implants is known as breast augmentation revision or breast implant revision. The reasons for performing breast augmentation revision are varied. Some women need to have their implants removed or replaced for medical reasons (i.e., the implants developed a rare complication) while other women wish to alter the size and/or shape of their breasts as their lifestyle or preferences change.
