Revisionary Breast Surgery

Revisionary Breast Surgery


Breast surgery is an individualized and personalized decision for every woman. These surgeries include breast augmentation, breast reduction, and mastopexy-augmentation (breast lift with augmentation). However, following a procedure, a patient may not be pleased with her outcome or had a complication arise which motivates her to seek out another surgeon for a revision. This may occur months or even years following the primary operation.

Dr. D. Glynn Bolitho is considered one of the most sought after plastic surgeons that specializes in revisionary breast surgery. A variety of reasons why this surgery may be of relevant consideration include the following:

  • Breast asymmetry
  • Capsular contracture
  • Symmastia
  • Removing and replacing a ruptured implant
  • Change in implant volume
  • Replacing saline with silicone implants

And more….

There is an array of reasons why a woman seeks revisionary breast surgery, and Dr. Bolitho can help restore those aesthetic wishes.

Surgical Candidates

While revisionary breast surgery consists of a variety of surgical techniques to meet the individual needs of a patient, there are ideal surgical candidates. These patients include the following:

  • Healthy adult women
  • Women with clear revisionary breast surgery goals
  • Women who have been mindful regarding the procedure
  • Healthy women without medical challenges which can impede surgery or healing

Consultation Overview

An initial consultation with Dr. Bolitho will allow the time you need to discuss your revisionary breast surgery goals. In a relaxed setting, you can share your aesthetic concerns while discussing your previous breast surgery history. Dr. Bolitho will afford the time you need to not only convey your thoughts and wishes, but also blend the time into a discussion and surgical plan tailored just for you.

From there you’ll be escorted to the consultation examining room. Photos will be taken for your medical file and downloaded to a state-of-the-art software program, TouchMD. The photographs will reflect the areas of potential cosmetic surgical treatment and are then uploaded to a touch screen in your examining room. Dr. Bolitho will utilize this software to get more in-depth information regarding your aesthetic wishes. Dr. Bolitho will map out the surgical process with this touch screen and discuss the latest techniques he uses to achieve the most desired aesthetic outcome for revisionary breast surgery.

If you choose to move forward with your surgery, your patient concierge will schedule a preoperative appointment. During this appointment you will meet with Dr. Bolitho once again to review your procedure and goals. You will also receive pre/postoperative detailed instructions to ensure a seamless surgical journey.

Revisionary Breast Surgery Recovery

Depending on the particular surgery performed, Dr. Bolitho will give you postoperative instructions to help guide you following your surgery and help reduce any complications.

More than likely, a postsurgical bra will be provided as well as dressings which will enable you to shower the very next day.

Although you will be mobile, you may feel sore and sensitive for the first few days. Dr. Bolitho will prescribe medication to help control any discomfort. Depending on your employment type, you may be able to return to work in a few days.

Dr. Bolitho will also advise you as to when you can resume your normal activities.

In your initial consultation, Dr. Bolitho explains how cosmetic surgery is a journey. The transformations from a revisionary breast surgery are extraordinary, but patience is needed as your body heals and recovers.
