Breast Revision in Tampa
Breast revision or revision mammoplasty are procedures performed to improve upon or correct a previous breast surgery (either cosmetic or reconstructive breast surgery). Reasons for choosing a breast revision surgery (revision mammoplasty) includes capsular contracture, implant deflation or leakage, asymmetry, or symmastia (breasts touching in the midline) to name a few. The actual procedure varies depending on the reasons for the revision and goals of the patient.

Breast revision procedure:
A breast revision procedure (revision mammoplasty) is performed under a light general anesthesia. The type of procedure depends on the unique needs of each patient. It is common to combine different procedures to achieve a desired outcome. This procedure is performed in our Joint Commission (JCAHO) accredited surgical facility. The time required for the procedure varies depending on the complexity of the procedure. Anesthesia is provided by experienced board certified anesthesiologists who are also on staff at major local hospitals.
Recovery after a breast revision procedure/ revision mammoplasty:
Immediately after surgery, a support bra is placed on you. You may resume all your normal non-strenuous activities as soon as discomfort allows. Most of our patients resume to their work about 3-5 days post surgery. Most swelling will gradually dissipate over 6 weeks. We will continue to see you during your follow-up until healing is assured.
