If you’ve had a breast augmentation, reduction, or lift, but didn’t fully achieve the results you were desiring, a breast revision surgery might be right for you. Or, if you were very pleased with your outcome but time, gravity, or pregnancies have altered your result, a revision may get you back to loving your result once again. The goal of this procedure is to change or improve the breast’s appearance, which could include reshaping the breast implant pocket to reposition the implant on the chest, increasing or decreasing the size, shape or style of the implant, or adding a breast lift or scar revision.
Breast revision surgery is not a ‘standard’ procedure, so it needs to be tailored specifically to your goals and desires. Since breast procedures are among the most popular cosmetic surgeries, many surgeons perform them, but not all have the specialized training and experience to create the results you want. Dr. Poulter, with almost 30 years in practice, is board-certified and has performed thousands of breast procedures, combining his surgeon’s skill with an artful eye to create natural-looking, beautiful results.
Good communication with your plastic surgeon is the key to achieving your aesthetic goals, which will be discussed during your initial consultation. Your surgeon will evaluate you as a candidate for breast revision and explain what a revision can do for you. Considerations include the current size and shape of your breasts, what kind of implant you currently have, the size and shape you want, the quality and quantity of your breast tissue, the quality of your skin, and the placement of your nipples and areolas.
During your consultation, your breasts will be examined, measured and photographed for your medical record. You should also come prepared with information about your past and present medical conditions, allergies, current medications, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including breast biopsies, family history or breast cancer, and current mammogram results.
