Risks in a secondary breast Augmentation
if you choose the right surgeon: an ASAPS member one, the risk will be the same as the prior procedure, by the way, minimum, since we do all things like blood tests, Xray, physical examinarion, and cardiac risk with our cardiologist. This with an appoved facility will low the risk at it's minimum expression.
Risks for second augmentation
in order to notice some difference there has to be at least 100 - to 150 cc of increase in your implants.

Without photos it is hard to comment on risks of possibly using implants too large for your frame. All the best.
Are there increase risks from having a breast augmentation one year after my primary surgery?
- The increased risk would be related to the size of the implant and further stretching of your tissues. Any other risks would be the same as for your primary procedure. Going from 445 to 500 mL is not a significant increase in size. I usually recommend that patients consider going 100 mL or more higher to have a noticeable difference. Best wishes!
Risks of replacing breast implants after a year
My main concern would be that you are again taking the risk of capsular contraction. If your breast implants are freely movable and soft now then developing capsule contracture after a second surgery is unlikely. However when the breast implant pocket is entered and larger implants are placed there is eyes the risk of a capsular contraction.
