Breast revision surgery best done
- There are many reasons that you may have difficulty finding a plastic surgeon. One of the big ones is that the complications with a breast augmentation can be difficult to repair. The natural anatomy that holds the implant up are distorted. The other issue is that any surgeon that takes you on as a patient is assuming a great deal of risk. Any unhappiness on your part after is now there problem, even if they did not create the original problem.
- In a situation like this I strongly suggest you find a surgeon that does a lot of breast reconstruction as well as cosmetic breast surgery. There are a ton of plastic surgeons that do breast augmentation. Unfortunately they may not have the experience to prevent certain problems or the skills to correct them if they do happen. A surgeon that can make breasts from the ground up are likely better qualified to fix your problem.
- Other things to consider are their reviews on line, references from your doctor and other friends. When you meet them make sure you have a good feeling about them. Make sure you think they will be their to support you after the surgery and be clear about the expected benefit and who pays if there is a need for a second revisionary surgery.
