Why Breast Revision Surgery?
One of the most common issues I correct through breast revision surgery is capsular contracture, a complication that occurs when scar tissue tightens too much around the breast implant(s) after breast augmentation surgery.
The Corrective Procedure
During your consultation with Dr. Patronella, he will diagnose and determine the best method to correct your breasts’ appearance. This may involve a combination of techniques that include replacement of implants, repair of the capsule, altering of the implants’ position and tightening of the tissues to lift the breasts. The procedure is performed in one to two hours under general anesthesia on an outpatient basis, and stitches are removed one week later.
In the following weeks, you will wear a sports bra to support the healing of your breasts. Though heavy activity should be avoided for at least a couple of weeks following surgery, most individuals can return to work within 7-10 days.
