If you could do it all over again, would you? When it comes to breast surgery
, sometimes the answer is a resounding yes! Maybe you are unhappy with a previous surgery or are having problems with your implants. If so, it might be time to consider a “do over,” otherwise known as a breast revision.
Guilt Be Gone
Breast revisions are done for various reasons, including changes that occur in breast tissue after childbirth or during breastfeeding; changes that occur with implants causing altered appearance or worse, pain and health risks; and sometimes even just a simple change of mind. No matter what the reason, however, the important thing is that you can indeed fix the problem. This is not a situation of “you made your bed, now you have to lie in it.” Don’t let feelings of guilt get in the way of making things right. If you are not happy, and especially if you are in pain, a breast revision can ease your discomfort and your mind.
You can rest assured that as a woman, Dr. Lisa J. Learn understands just how you feel. That’s why we take the time to talk prior to undergoing breast surgery. We want to hear your questions and concerns, and will provide all the information you need to feel at ease with your decision. Let us know what you like and don’t like, what your desires and expectations are, and most importantly, how you feel. It is also helpful if you can provide details about your implants and previous surgery.
Getting Your Breasts Back
Typically this type of breast surgery involves removing old implants that may have shifted out of position, started to leak and become deflated, or just aren’t giving you the effect you wanted, and replacing them with new ones that fit your desired size and specifications. Any complications you’ve been experiencing will be corrected at this time. Capsular contracture, for instance, is the buildup of scar tissue surrounding implants causing tightness and pain. This scar tissue can be surgically removed as part of your breast revision procedure. Tightening loose or puckering skin due to weight fluctuations is another example. In the end, the goal is to give you the contours, appearance and comfort you want—and deserve—as well as help you look and feel your best.
Recovery from Breast Revision Surgery
Your breasts may feel sore and somewhat hardened at first, but as the swelling diminishes, so will the other symptoms. For successful recovery, it is important to follow care instructions closely
. Keep arm extensions to a minimum, as well as lifting and other strenuous activities. You should start feeling good after two to four weeks—both physically and mentally!
