A recent study from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows that the most popular surgical procedure in the United States is breast augmentation, with more than 355,000 of them performed in 2008 alone. But double-board certified plastic surgeon, David M. Whiteman, MD says not all women end up being happy with their results, and breast revision surgery can help patients feel satisfied and enhance their appearance.
(Vocus) August 11, 2009 -- Women today are often choosing to undergo a breast revision surgery, also called a “re-do” or in some practices a reconstruction, if they are dissatisfied with the results of a prior surgical breast procedure. Outside of removing or “undoing” an entire breast augmentation, many are unaware of the option to have their breast procedure revised to restore or achieve desired results. Whether a patient has been affected by dramatic fluctuations in weight or has been unhappy with their results from the beginning, breast revision surgery can be the solution. For patients who have had breast implants in Atlanta or elsewhere, Dr. David Whiteman offers breast revision surgery to those who are dissatisfied with the outcome.
Dr. Whiteman is the founder of Southern Plastic Surgery, a practice devoted to aesthetic enhancement and cosmetic plastic surgery in Atlanta. “There is nothing more disheartening for a plastic surgery patient than being unhappy with their results – especially after having to undergo the surgical procedure and putting in the necessary recovery time,” said Dr. David Whiteman, founder of Southern Plastic Surgery in Duluth. “At Southern Plastic Surgery, we call our corrective breast procedures breast revisions because we work together with each patient to create a new vision to further enhance the breasts or to correct any problems seen with the patient’s current augmentation, reduction, or lift received at other practices.”
The effects of pregnancy or drastic weight gain/weight loss are among the most common contributors to dissatisfaction with prior procedures. A breast lift at our Atlanta practice or a new implant may be needed for women to restore their look after the effects of their body change. Breast revision surgery can also be a solution for women who wish to decrease or increase the size of their implants, change the shape of their breasts, or switch implants from saline to silicone and vice versa. Others seek a revisionary procedure after their battle with breast cancer or other complications. Because every breast revision surgery is different, a comprehensive treatment plan needs to be tailored to each individual patient.
