Revision Breast Surgery

For a variety of reasons, some women may eventually decide to revise or enhance the results of a previous breast surgery. Whether you would like to exchange your breast implants for a different size or type (such as upgrading from saline to silicone); whether you are experiencing a complication from the initial surgery; or if you are simply dissatisfied with the outcome from a previous breast enhancement procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon can help. Dr. Stafford Broumand is experienced and skilled with a number of breast revision surgery techniques, and can help you attain your goals with beautiful, natural-looking results.

Breast Revision Surgery Recovery

Most patients are able to return to normal daily routines within one week after revision breast surgery. There will be some swelling and bruising present after surgery; however, any discomfort can be alleviated with medication. Dr. Broumand advises his patients to refrain from any strenuous activity for at least one month after surgery.

Dr. Broumand and his group are very professional, thorough and kind. My results with Stafford are unparalleled, my quality of life changed forever.
