Breast Revision

After having a breast surgery, a Breast Revision may be needed for different reasons. Overtime gravity can take its toll and cause changes in the augmented breast, weight loss and or weight gain may also have an affect on the appearance of the breasts. Breast revision is a surgical procedure that can refine and rejuvenate the appearance of your breasts.

Procedure:

There are several surgical techniques to achieve the desired outcomes and the proper approach will be discussed with you during your consult with Dr. Buono.Breast Revision may also be paired with other procedures such as a Breast Lift, exchange of implants, or liposuction to obtain an aesthetically pleasing result. *

Recovery:

Recovery may vary depending on the extent of revision, however, in general, you may plan for a week off from work and four weeks of no heavy lifting and minimizing your activity. Your dressings will be changed at your one-week follow-up appointment with Dr. Buono and you will be required to wear a soft support bra for approximately four weeks.
