WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT A SECOND BREAST SURGERY
Breast augmentation revision surgery is an outpatient procedure using general anesthesia. The duration of surgery can be from thirty minutes to two hours depending on the required correction.
Recovery varies from patient to patient. Most patients return to daily responsibilities within two weeks after surgery. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least three weeks and with Dr. Livingston’s permission. Swelling and bruising should subside within three weeks as well.
After initial breast surgery, scar tissue may develop at the incision locations and around the implants. This scar tissue adds to the complexity of your second treatment. Dr. Livingston will require as much information as possible to formulate a revision plan to correct the issues which developed after your first surgery.
