Going Back To Original Surgeon For a Revision. What Questions to Ask?

I had augmentation four months ago. One of them is considerably lower than other and slides around in the pocket. I am going back to original surgeon ,and I am wondering questions to ask. Is this needed revision part of touch up , or does a new smaller pocket mean I would have to pay for the whole thing again. Because I can't. I would just have to live with it. Any suggestions as to what verbage to use when I go for next appt?
Breast Augmentation Revision Communication?
Thank you for the question.
I think if you are able to communicate your concerns with your plastic surgeon in a calm, non-accusatory fashion you will most likely have a positive experience. Most successful plastic surgeons try very hard to keep their patients happy; it is likely that your surgeon will do everything he/she can to make this happen.
I hope this helps. Best wishes.

Breast augmentation revision
All plastic surgeons will have patients in need of revisional surgery. As the implant malposition has occured relatively early post operatively I would think that your surgeon will work to get this corrected to keep you as a happy patient. Many of us would waive the surgical fee but have the patient cover the cost of supplies. Those of us with our own accreditted operating rooms can usually offer a better fee than a hospital or outpatient facility.
I hope that your upcoming visit goes well and that you and your surgeon can come to a mutually agreeable decision.
