Yes.  While the original breast augmentation would not have been considered a medical expense, the revision is.

IRS Pub. 502 - Medical and Dental Expenses defines medical expenses as:  "...the costs of diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of disease, and the costs for treatments affecting any part or function of the body"
