What is breast revision surgery?
Even after a successful breast augmentation surgery, many women decide to undergo a breast revision surgery to resize or reform the shape of their implants. Whether it’s to reduce or further enlarge the breast size, or even to restructure the shape, breast revision surgery is a very common procedure. Although sometimes it can be necessary as a result of infection or discomfort within the implant, more often than not, it’s due to a change in appearance after childbirth and breastfeeding, as a result of age, or simply because the patient desires supplementary adjustments to their breasts.
What should I expect during the consultation?
During your consultation, Dr. Klein of Your Renaissance will ask you to discuss your goals and expectations for the breast revision. You will have the opportunity to express your hopes for the procedure and describe how you’d like to adjust your implants, and he will assist you in determining the most realistic outcome for the surgery. If you received your implants from a different plastic surgery clinic in Charlotte or elsewhere, be sure to provide Dr. Klein with thorough and accurate paperwork, medical histories, and any pertinent information about your existing implants.
How will I be evaluated for my breast revision surgery?
Dr. Klein and the Your HKB Renaissance Plastic Surgery team will take photographs to include in your medical records, as well as to use in the preparation of your surgery. In addition to evaluating the shape and size of your breasts, they will also examine the current size and positioning of your papilla (nipple) and the form and function of your existing implants.
In determining if you are a good candidate for plastic surgery, Dr. Klein will need to be fully informed on your medical history, any medical conditions, allergies, prior treatments received, and of any medications that you currently take. He will also need to know about your family and personal history with breast cancer, ensuring that you’ve recently received a mammogram. Discuss your goals for weight, as substantial weight loss could have an affect on the results of the breast revision, and if you have any plans of becoming pregnant, also be prepared to discuss these with Dr. Klein during the evaluation.
