Yes, If you need to. Revision breast surgery is not uncommon. I tell all of my patients that although i want them to be happy with their breast surgery for a long time, it is highly likely they will have a revision surgery or more in their lifetime. It could be after childbirth, weight loss or gain, implant deflation or a desire to change the size. It is important to see a board-certified plastic surgeon.
Yes. Surgery is not a "one and done" sort of thing. If you are unhappy and you have allowed the appropriate amount of time to allow your breasts to heal (approx. 6 months) then you can go back and have a second procedure. With the right surgeon, it is uncommon to have an early revision. An experienced surgeon can help you reach your goals, the first time.
Yes. Revsion plastic surgery after breast augmentation can be one of the most artisically demanding cosmetic procedures in plastic surgery. It is very commonly done, but you should choose your expert wisely. Experience, with good results really matters here. You want the best result possible no matter what your problem may be. Take your time choosing and don't shop price here. Be well, dr. Fred, n.J.
