Breast Revision Surgery The Woodlands
Breast revision surgery is a corrective measure undertaken for unsatisfactory results due to technical or medical complications from a previous breast augmentation or other type of breast surgery. It takes a skilled hand to perform revision surgery, and Dr. Lind is an excellent choice for this procedure.
Reasons to Consider Breast Revision Surgery
Breast revision surgery aims to reduce any flaws in the appearance of the breasts caused by an initial breast augmentation or other breast procedure. One such flaw is rippling in the skin, which can result from the breast tissue being too thin. Breast implant shifting, double bubble (a curve beneath the breast crease), and asymmetry are other potential issues. There are a host of other problems that can be seen with other types of breast surgery.
After a breast augmentation, it is normal for the breasts to experience changes in size, shape, and structure due to factors like pregnancy, aging, fluctuations in weight, and hormonal change. Revision surgery can correct these post-operative changes. Revision surgery can also be used to correct other breast surgery problems.
The procedure can include switching from silicone to saline implants or vice versa as per the patient’s requirements. Implants can be repositioned, and the complete removal or replacement of implants is also possible through this procedure. In other instances of breast surgery, sometimes tissue will need to be rearranged to correct the problem.
Breast Revision or Corrective Breast Surgery Consultation
Making the right choice of surgeon will help to avoid experiencing disappointing results twice. Choose Dr. Jeffrey Lind, a medical professional with years of experience in the field.
Make sure that your expectations are clearly understood during your consultation with Dr. Lind. This is the best way to get the results you are looking to achieve. Understand the possible risks and outcomes, and do not hesitate to ask questions.
The Breast Revision Procedure
The procedure varies according to the extent of your breast revision needs. It can include the repositioning of nipples and areolae, removal or exchange of implants, or merely a change of implant size.
Correction surgeries will typically take from one to four hours to perform. In most cases, the approach to the implant will be through the previous incisions.
Breast Revision Results and Aftercare
The results of the breast revision surgery are usually long lasting, unless there are dramatic alterations to your body. It is important to remember that factors like pregnancy, aging, and gravity will change the structure of your breasts. Visit your doctor periodically to monitor for any complications.
Detailed instructions on post-surgical care will be provided to you by Dr. Lind. It is common to experience temporary pain, swelling, stiffness, and bruising as the effects of anesthesia start wearing off. A compression bra will be useful in reducing these issues and helping your tissues settle into their new position.
Normally, two to three weeks of rest are mandatory before returning to your daily chores. Physically strenuous activities should be avoided at all costs until you have completely recovered, which is usually in about six weeks.
