Years ago I had a doctor reduce my breast size and lift them. I don't like the result. Could I have a revision?

They are uneven the scaring around my nipples are terrible and some how my breast look square. He did lipo to reduce them but it really didn't work at all. I weigh 108 lbs and 5'4 and that the first people notice is my breast. Need your help.

Yes you are safe to have a revision. Your new surgeon must follow the internal breast reduction of the original surgeon to insure health of the nipple

Revisions after breast reduction are occasionally indicated

Any Aesthetic operation sometimes needs a revision. Breast reduction is no exception. I personally do not charge my patients in additional professional fee for revisional surgery.

Revision breast reduction is certainly a possibility. If you're unhappy with your current results, I would recommend a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Based on your height and you would still be a candidate for breast reduction surgery.

I am sorry to hear about your dissatisfaction after previous breast surgery. Although “official” recommendations would necessitate in person evaluation and/or viewing pictures, it does sound like you will benefit from revisionary breast surgery. I would suggest that you seek in person consultation with board-certified plastic surgeons who can demonstrate significant experience helping patients in your situation. Then, communicate your goals carefully in front of a full-length mirror and/or with the help of goal pictures. Best wishes.
