The length of time you should wait before undergoing removal or replacement surgery will depend on your reasons for surgery. If you are experiencing complications or issues such as a ruptured implant or capsular contraction then this can be performed as soon as possible to relieve you of any pain or discomfort.
If you are not experiencing any complications but are just not happy with the appearance of your implants then we do remind patients that it can take longer than a few weeks to see the true results from breast enlargement surgery. Swelling will start to subside over 4-6 weeks and after this stage, implants will begin to settle. The final results from a breast augmentation may take up to 6 months to evolve. Overall, we do recommend that patients wait 6 months before making a decision on revision surgery.
