Breast Revision

Breast Revision: Breast revision is a surgical procedure performed to address issues with previous breast augmentation or reconstruction surgery. It can involve replacing implants, adjusting their position or size, correcting asymmetry, removing scar tissue, or lifting sagging breasts.

Pros: Can improve aesthetics, address complications, restore symmetry, enhance self-confidence.

Cons: Surgery carries risks like infection, bleeding, scarring, and anesthesia complications. May require additional procedures. Not always covered by insurance.

Alternatives: Depending on the reason for revision, non-surgical options like wearing supportive bras or weight management might be considered. In some cases, fat grafting can offer volume enhancement.

Recovery Time: Varies depending on the complexity of the procedure. Simple revisions might require a week of recovery, while more extensive procedures could take several weeks.
