Small modifications: breast lift and umbilical tag should be feasible
Revision under local?
Different surgeons have different beliefs as to what can be done with only local anesthesia without sedation or general anesthesia. My thoughts for the following in office procedures follow. Belly button can be revised in the office with local anesthesia. Areolar reduction can also be performed in office under local anesthesia. It is best to have your breast size where you desire prior to areola reduction. If you decide you want larger breasts and opt for breast implants, do the implants first followed by an areola reduction 6-12 months later. Doing an augmentation after areola reduction can stretch out the areola or stretch out the scar around the areola. To do much more breast work requires general anesthesia, excise or tighten excess skin, mobilize breast tissue, etc… Discuss your case with your plastic surgeon who can determine what can be done in the office for your specific needs.
