Breast Revision Surgery

Breast Augmentation

Breast Revision Surgery ( also called secondary breast surgery ) is a term given to any procedure used to correct complications of breast augmentation.  As a surgeon with a reputation for performing word class breast augmentation procedures, I will get referrals from all around the country.

Breast Implant

Breast Revision Surgery is most commonly performed for malposition of a breast implant.  The implant needs to sit in a pocket that the surgeon creates. This pocket is sometimes made too high, too low, too wide, or too narrow.  Making a pocket larger can be releatively simple. Moving a pocket or making it smaller can be extremely difficult as the pocket needs to be made smaller using suture placement which is not an exact science.

Patient

My patients choose between having their facelift procedures in the office or at the surgery center. Office procedures are performed in my Loudoun, Virginia office outside of Leesburg. Office procedures are performed with the patient awake but the patient takes valium and a oral pain medication followed by injection anesthesia. Surgery center patients go to Loudoun Ambulatory Surgery Center where the procedure is performed with the patient asleep.
