Breast Revision

Our goal in Breast Revision surgery is to improve the look, shape and size of breasts that have been previously operated on. The techniques used will vary based on previous operations and what we are trying to accomplish. Frequently, we combine the breast lift and breast augmentation techniques. We also often use fat grafting, which is fat taken from the belly with liposuction and placed back into the breasts. Revision surgery can also include reconstructed breasts after breast cancer.
