A breast correction surgery, or breast revision surgery, addresses issues stemming from a previous breast enhancement, or other breast surgery procedure. Breast correction surgery may also include a mastectomy to reconstruct or restore the breast(s) to a more normal appearance, corrective surgery to correct abnormalities such as tubular breasts, and other breast corrective surgeries. The conditions that might cause a revision of previous breast enhancement surgeries include the deflation of implants, desire to increase breast size, shifting of breast implants and the tightening of scar tissue around the implant. Dr. Sofonio offers breast correction surgery to residents of Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage, CA.
Prior to the breast correction surgery, you will have for a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Sofonio. During the consultation, he will examine your breasts, analyze your medical history, and discover your expectations from the surgery. Your exact condition will dictate the type of procedure you will need to correct any issues. Some form of surgery is usually necessary, and the severity of the problem will contribute to the extensiveness of the surgery.
After your breast correction surgery, your incisions will be covered with dressings, and you will probably need to wear a surgical bra for support during the healing process. Dr. Sofonio will instruct you on the best post-operative care routine specifically tailored to your condition.
You will generally experience some swelling after a breast correction surgery, but it will soon lessen as the healing process progresses. Also, the incisions marks may take a while to fade until they are almost inconspicuous. Apart from these concerns, you should see a marked, or even, dramatic improvement in the appearance of your breasts.
