A breast lift is a surgical procedure designed to lift a woman’s breasts higher on the chest wall. The surgeon generally trims away excess skin and, if necessary, moves the nipples to higher locations on each breast. If you’ve had a breast lift procedure and are not happy with the results, or the signs of aging continue to reappear, revision breast lift surgery may be necessary to re-correct the problem and give you the bust you desire.
Reasons to Consider Revision
Deciding to have surgery again is a big step, but there are plenty of situations where living with the results you have now is simply not an option. If your previous breast lift procedure left your breasts too low, a revision could lift them higher. If your breasts were lifted too high and you believe they now look fake or comical, a revision can create a more natural aesthetic.
Patients who had a breast lift and can now see a marked difference in height, volume or shape between their breasts due to aging can have a revision to fix the issue. The same can be said for women who have asymmetry with their nipples.
Finally, some women are not happy with the scars left over from their first surgery and want them revised. No matter why you’re dissatisfied with your current results, revision may be able to give you a better outcome.
The Revision Process
A revision is very similar to the original procedure, but the goals may be slightly different. Your reasons for seeking revision and the desired aesthetic outcome weigh heavily in Dr. Hanemann’s approach to the procedure, which he will discuss with you in advance. There will be no surprises and our surgeon will explain everything to you in detail before you come in for your procedure.
Recovering from a Revision Breast Lift
Recovering from a second procedure is much like recovering from the first. You’ll likely need help at home at first, especially with activities such as preparing meals, tidying the house or changing your clothes. Some women experience less discomfort after a second surgery simply because the nerves were already affected once and there is less sensation the second time.
