I recommend waiting at least 6 months after surgery before any revision or change in implants. Your body needs time to heal and your tissue to settle. You may find after 6 months, you like your result better. Best wishes.
Thank you for your question. Presuming that you heal without issue, a revision can be performed at least 3-6 months after surgery. Good luck.
Thank you for your question. I would recommend a minimum of 6 months before undergoing surgery to change the size of your implants. You need to give your body adequate time to heal from your initial surgery. Best, Dr. Kludt
Generally speaking 3-6 months is an acceptable waiting period to consider upsizing your implants. If you started out small breasted and are looking for a large size increase a year might be a better time interval in order to allow your tissues to stretch and accommodate the implants.Best of luck, Dr. Meghan Nadeau, Seattle, WA
I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you wait 6-8 months between surgeries for you implants to settle and your body to recover and heal.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

With the limited information provided I can only answer your question in general terms. For someone who initially had sufficient loose skin to go larger I think a six month waiting period after the initial surgery is sufficient. For someone for example who is a tight small A cup and wishes to be augmented to a much larger size than was achievable at the initial surgery, waiting 12 to 18 months provides relaxation of the skin and a much better (and bigger) final outcome.
I hope this is useful information for you. Best wishes.

You didn't give much information, so assuming you just had them done, I would say about 4-6 months to allow for the tissues to stretch and soften. Best of luck.
Dear Marian, Front and side view pictures would have been helpful. I recommend to my patients to wait 3-6 months before contemplating any revision of breasts augmentation surgery, in order to let the implants settle down and the swelling go down. Than you can assess your real breasts cup size and decide about your desired breasts size. Depend on the amount of implants size increase, the exchange can be done under local anesthesia if there is enough room for the implants. Otherwise, capsulotomy (scar release) will be necessary under general anesthesia, to allow for natural feel and look of the breasts. All the best, Dr Widder
Wait a minimum of 4-6 months after original surgery before redo. Allow the full edema and swelling to resolve before going larger
