I am sorry to hear about the complications you have experienced;  unfortunately, it is not possible to generalize regarding waiting time for additional surgery.   Timing for revision breast surgery is best individualized based on each patient's specific situation; therefore, your plastic surgeon will be your best resource. Best wishes for outcome that you will be pleased with longer-term.

Without knowing your medical history and the complications that you refer to, it is not possible to answer this question.  Your surgeon is your best resource for advice.
