When problems with your initial breast reconstruction surgery are impeding your quality of life, a revision or corrective breast reconstruction procedure can be performed to help alleviate pain, stress and lowered self-confidence.
What Is Breast Reconstruction Revision?
Patients who have had breast reconstruction in a prior procedure (either implant or flaps) may require revisionary surgery or additional procedures to improve appearance, alleviate pain, correct any deformity, or provide better symmetry. Corrective surgery can happen at any time following initial breast reconstructive surgery.
Some patients with initial implant reconstruction will choose to remove implants and proceed with flap reconstruction. You can expect a breast reconstruction revision procedure, whether simple or involving multiple stages, to be covered by your health insurance.
