How Soon Can I Have my Breasts Redone to Gain Slightly Bigger Implants?

And how many cc's should I have gotten? I had always been a size D/C up until I started having children. At 31 and three children later, my breasts went down and to a tiny B/A cup. I just had my surgery less than a week ago where my doctor gave me textured silicone implants of 280 cc. I am really upset with how small they look!

This should be uncommon today using preoperative and a comprehensive evaluation of metrics. If this does occur, I have my patients wait at least 3-6 months before considering operative revision or implant exchange for larger or smaller breast implants.

There are no absolute guarantees when it comes to volume of the breast implant and the final cup size. WE generally advise waiting 4-6 months prior to undergoing revision augmentation mammaplasty.

Revision of recent breast augmentation surgery should really wait 4-6 months for the soft tissue to soften after the previous surgery.

When doing revision breast augmentation in New York City, we usually wait several months.  But if you are sure you want larger breast implants, there is no reason to wait.  And we use smooth walled implants.
