Breast Revision in Smithtown, long Island
Serving Suffolk County
After having breast augmentation, some women may choose to remove and replace their breast implants out of either new preferences or necessity. Long Island plastic surgeon Dr. Lloyd Landsman helps patients like these by performing breast revision surgery. Utilizing advanced surgical techniques, he ensures that his patients’ breasts have an appealing shape and size for the best appearance and proportion they have ever had.
Breast Revision Procedure Details
During a consultation, Dr. Landsman devises a surgical plan to best address the patient’s goals for breast revision. In most respects, breast revision is like the original breast augmentation surgery. When possible, Dr. Landsman places his incisions in the same spots as the previous surgery to avoid creating new areas with scarring. The pocket inside the breast that holds the implant may need to be resized to accommodate the size of the new implant. The patient is kept comfortable for the entire surgery with general anesthesia.
Breast Revision Recovery
Patients can expect a similar timeline to their original breast augmentation recovery, though discomfort may be less significant since the implant pocket already exists. Most take one to two weeks off from work to focus on resting and relaxation. Though strenuous exercise should be avoided in the first month or two to avoid jostling the healing breasts, walking is a good way to keep the blood circulating for reduced swelling. Wearing a compression garment further accelerates the recovery.
Breast Revision Costs
The cost of breast revision depends on the techniques Dr. Landsman utilizes to achieve the patient’s goals. During a consultation, he can provide a complete quote. Although most breast revision procedures are considered cosmetic in nature, some that are deemed “medically necessary” may be covered in part by health insurance. Dr. Landsman accepts financing through a variety of medical lenders.
