Board-Certified Plastic Surgeons Serving Denver, Lone Tree, Colorado & Nationwide

Posted: December 15, 2020

Corrective breast reconstruction patient in Lone TreeThe goal of breast reconstruction revision surgery is to correct any issues that occurred with your first reconstruction procedure. These problems may affect your appearance, comfort, or health. You may even be looking for reconstruction options becuase you chose to not have reconstruction years ago.  

If you’re unhappy with the results of reconstruction surgery performed elsewhere, corrective surgery at The Breast Center Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery is a solution worth exploring. Here’s what you can expect after your procedure.

Recovering from Breast Reconstruction Revision

Breast reconstruction revision recovery varies by procedure. You may have undergone breast implant exchange surgery or implant removal followed by DIEP Flap. Those are the most common options for corrective breast reconstruction.

Our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a safe and comfortable experience. Plan on taking it easy for several weeks before gradually resuming normal activities.

Follow-Up Surgeries to Shape and Refine Your Breasts

It’s perfectly normal to undergo minor procedures after you’ve healed from your primary breast reconstruction revision surgery. These procedures help achieve the ideal breast shape, volume, contour, and overall appearance. Sometimes, a minor shaping procedure is all that’s needed to improve reconstruction done elsewhere.

Breast shaping adjustments are performed on one or both breasts and can include any of the following:

  • Breast lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Liposuction
  • Fat grafting
  • Breast implant placement
  • Nipple reconstruction
  • Areola pigmentation (sometimes called nipple tattooing)
