Preview Your Results at Your Consultation
During your initial consultation, Dr. Graham will review your medical history, overall health, and lifestyle to determine if you are a good candidate for surgery. After discussing your surgical goals with you, he can use our in-office VECTRA® 3-D imaging system to show you a preview of your results. By seeing 3-D images of your potential results, you can feel more confident entering your surgery.
What Happens During a Breast Implant Revision?
During a breast implant revision, Dr. Graham will replace your current implants with new ones. Depending on your unique concerns, he may also:
- Perform a breast lift or breast reduction
- Reposition your implants on the chest
- Increase or decrease the size of your implants
- Select a shape or style of implant, such as the IDEAL IMPLANT, that more closely aligns with your goals
Most surgeries are performed under general anesthesia, which means you will be fully asleep during your procedure. Once you have reached the desired level of sedation, Dr. Graham will create incisions on your breasts. The size and location of your incisions will depend on the procedures he is performing during surgery.
Dr. Graham can design a revision surgery that improves the shape, feel, and position of your implants.
Once Dr. Graham has made the necessary modifications to your implants and breasts, he will close your incisions with sutures. Most surgeries can be completed in one to three hours, but the actual length will depend on your unique concerns and goals.
Recovery and Results
Dr. Graham and his staff will provide post-operative care instructions to follow after your surgery. These instructions will include:
- How to care for your incisions after surgery
- Which garments to wear
- What medications to take
Most patients experience swelling for a few weeks after the procedure. Swelling usually subsides within six weeks and your results will become more visible at that time. Keep in mind that it can take up to 12 months for some women to experience the final, full results of their procedure.
