Breast revision surgery is performed to resolve various issues stemming from an earlier breast surgery.
Breast Revision, Step By Step
Your first step is to meet with Dr. Sofonio so he can evaluate the problems you are experiencing and discuss the procedure. Your medical history will be reviewed. You may have questions or concerns, and Dr. Sofonio takes the time to ensure you understand everything about the procedure and your recovery. Your surgical date will be scheduled.
The procedure varies, person to person. This surgery is typically performed with general anesthesia, and you will not experience any pain or remember the surgery.
If your implants need to be replaced and you have no other problems, the surgery generally involves placing an incision in the same location as your first augmentation, removing the implant, and placing the new implants. In cases of capsular contracture, various surgical approaches are used to remove the scar tissue causing the problem.
