Breast Augmentation Revision
When you don’t get the results you want after a breast augmentation, you might automatically think the worst. You can feel terrible about how you look and you can feel less confident overall. However, there are options for you and you can often fix your failed surgery to make it look more like you want it. A good plastic surgeon can revise your original surgery and make it look much more like you want it to.
What Should I Do for a Breast Augmentation Revision?
The first thing you will want to do when you are considering a revision is to talk to a plastic surgeon that you trust. You might not want to go back to the same surgeon that did your original operation—especially if you have been extremely dissatisfied with the surgery that has been performed. The best thing you can do is to find a surgeon who is highly rated and who cares about you as a patient. Once you have talked to him or her about your surgery, you will want to go in and talk to him or her.
What are the Next Steps?
You’ll be called in for a meeting with your chosen surgeon to talk about what might need to happen in order to fix your previous surgery. You will also be given a quote on how much it will cost and whether or not your insurance will be able to cover it. Your surgeon will be able to help you come up with a solution and can tell you what the process will be like so you are prepared and you can handle it. He or she might often suggest a lift so that you have younger looking breasts and so they can fix the damage of the last surgery.
How Serious Will the Surgery Be?
Depending on how badly botched your last surgery is, it can take up to several hours to repair the damage and to either place new implants in or to lift the breasts to where they should be. You will want to make sure you have someone to drive you home and you will want to rest for a few days so you can make a full recovery without worrying about infections.
You might think that all hope is lost when you have a bad surgery, but that is not always the case. In fact, you might end up liking the results better when you have your surgery revised and you have a consummate professional with good customer reviews helping you.
