Secondary Breast Reduction Risks
An examination by a board certified plastic surgeon experienced in secondary surgeries would be required. Often, the location and type of scarring tells the surgeon the most likely surgical approach used previously. Your position is not unique and in most cases revisional surgery is possible without complications.
Here is an overview of complications that can occur with breast revisional surgery
The specific risks and suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare. In general there are comlications that apply to surgery just about anywhere such as : excessive bleeding, unsightly scars, pain, fluid collection (seroma) beneath the skin, wound separation, infection,etc.
Then there are complications specific to the breast reduction such as: nipple sensation change/loss, fat necrosis (hardening of breast tissue), breast asymmetry, all of which may require revisional surgery.
