When doing a revision for implant reconstruction do you have to start over from square one ie if the implant is going to be larger and or a different shape i.e. from round to tear drop?

Revision breast reconstruction
It you are seeking a revision of your breast reconstruction, this does not mean you have to start from "square one" It all depends on what you would like to change/improve. Please visit with a ASPS member surgeon in your area to learn more about your options

It is nor always necessary to start from what you say as square one. Often the pocket can be opened more for a larger implant.
