I think there's a typo that limits my understanding of the question.

If you had an operation on something (say, sinuses), and a complication of the operation is that you now have headaches, you can file for headaches. If you got a high enough rating for the new headaches disability, of course your total rating would increase.

My guess is it's a little more personal than sinuses, since you didn't mention it.

Sounds like it would be 'Direct' as opposed to 'Secondary', but that's just academic from your perspective.

If one develops a condition as a consequence of a procedure one had during service and that one has a VA rating for will that result in an increase of VA rating? 

 Actually we need little more information?

Yes it can lead to an increase.

but I think you may have to file it as a secondary conditions caused by the first condition...once this new secondary condition is awarded  it becomes Service connected  with the first condition,  you need a Qualified Dr to nexus the two. ( in detail.)

Who or what makes you think that this New Condition is directly linked to your in-service medical procedure which resulted in a condition now VA SC'd? What %?
