Breast Revision / Breast Implant Replacement

It had affected their lives in a positive way, they are physically, emotionally and mentally contented and they can’t even ask for more.

On the other hand, for a variety of reasons, not all outcomes live up to some patients’ expectations. Some deficiencies of the results are due to the malpractice of the surgeons. Therefore, prior to having any surgery, ensure that you are negotiating with a licensed and highly skilled surgeon because you might regret in the end. Factors including patient’s genetics, injury, health related matters, compliance with the requirements and instructions can also lead to unsuccessful results.

Aside from that, implants do not last everlastingly, they might also deflate or rupture, so they may be replaced or removed in due time. The patient’s skin stretches and weight changes; these alterations might affect the breasts.

For these unfortunate events, a patient might undertake a secondary breast procedure or more commonly acknowledged as breast revision Sydney to correct and address all irregularities.

Subsequent to the breast revision operation, dressings or bandages will be placed to the incisions. The treated breasts should be supported with elastic bandage or support bra to lessen swelling and to support the brand new contour throughout the healing period. Soreness and swelling for a number of weeks is normal.

Exercise and physically demanding activities can resume once the surgeon gives the patient a go signal. As time goes by, post-surgical swelling will diminish and incision lines will lighten.

The surgeon will give the patient pieces of advice on how to take care properly the surgical spot, what are the medications to apply or intake orally for faster healing and to lessen the probability of infection and when to follow up with the surgeon.
