Revisional breast surgery is always more surgically challenging than primary breast surgery and this is largely due to the presence of scar tissue, tissue stretching and anatomical changes caused by the previous implants, in the case of breast augmentation.
Whatever your reason for pursuing secondary breast revision, the most critical factor in your success is the choice of surgeon. Second breast revision is reconstructive and like all breast surgery, should be performed by a qualified Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon who is a member of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons. Dr Milovic specialises in secondary breast surgery and other cosmetic surgery revision.
For these and other related reasons, the costs of a revisional breast surgery procedure are higher than for primary breast augmentation or other breast surgery.
There are a number of reasons why revisional breast surgery will become necessary and these include implant deflation, breast implants that have shifted position, a silicone implant shell leak, Symmastia, Rippling, Capsular Contraction, Double-Bubble Deformity and changes to breast tissue caused by weight loss or breastfeeding.
There are a several revisional surgical techniques that can be performed and Dr Milovic will discuss these in detail with you prior to any Revisional Breast surgery.
