Is Revision Surgery Right For Me?

Revision surgery is an excellent way to improve on the results of a previous procedure that you feel did not quite meet your expectations. Whether you’re looking to correct a mistake, such as asymmetrical implants, or you simply want to enhance your results to better meet your aesthetic goals, revision surgery may be a good option for you.

In most cases, we recommend waiting for at least one year before performing revision surgery in order to allow your body’s tissues to heal properly. A specialist in facial plastic surgery or breast and body contouring procedures can make a recommendation on whether or not you’re a good candidate for corrective surgery based on your overall health, anatomy, and desired results.

Extensive Experience. Superior Results.

Corrective procedures can sometimes be more complicated than the initial surgery due to hardened tissue that forms around the incision line.

This is why it’s important to choose a surgeon with extensive experience and ample training in the corrective surgery of your choosing. This will improve the likelihood of achieving the results you’re hoping for after your revision is complete.

At Clevens Face and Body Specialists, our medical director Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS has surrounded himself with a team of highly talented practitioners that meet his rigorous standards for quality. When he created this practice, he knew that building on 25 years of excellent results would involve hand-picking a team of surgeons that would be able to offer his patients a truly elevated level of care.

Each one of our surgeons is an accomplished specialist in their chosen field and focuses on their specific area of expertise. This gives you the ability to look forward to results that meet your cosmetic goals and boost your quality of life in new and exciting ways. When you’re ready to learn more about what we can do for you, simply reach out to us at our Merritt Island or Melbourne, FL locations and set up your consultation with a member of our team.

The Main Benefits of Revision Surgery

Revision surgery gives patients the opportunity for a “do-over,” so they can achieve a better outcome after receiving disappointing results the first time around. Many of our patients are able to regain their confidence after having a revision to correct poor or unappealing results from a previous procedure.

Cosmetic surgery should be an opportunity for you to discover the boosted self-esteem that comes along with well-crafted results, and we understand that a surgical outcome that doesn’t meet your expectations can be quite disappointing. Our team of surgeons brings knowledge and compassion to each procedure in equal measure and will work with you to ensure that you’re able to enjoy your desired outcome.

Your Informative Consultation

Your consultation will give us the opportunity to learn everything we can about your cosmetic goals, and how your previous surgical experience fell short of meeting them. Once we’ve learned about your lifestyle, health timeline, and expectations for revision plastic surgery, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that sees you enjoying your preferred outcome.

During this time, we’ll discuss with you the surgical technique that will be used during your revision plastic surgery. This will include thorough details about incision placement, and what you can expect in terms of visible incision lines after your procedure. Our surgeons make every effort to utilize closure techniques that make incision lines difficult to notice after the healing process.

In addition to detailed information about your surgery, we’ll also give you in-depth aftercare instructions. You won’t be left to fend for yourself, however, as our team will remain available to keep you supported and comfortable throughout your recovery process. We’ll schedule follow-up appointments to ensure that you’re healing nicely, and will be here to address any concerns that you might have during your recovery period.

Your Recovery and Results

The recovery period that follows your revision plastic surgery procedure will vary according to the specifics of your surgical plan. In most cases, you can expect that the recovery period after your revision procedure will be similar to what you experienced after your initial surgery.

Before your procedure, your surgeon will work with you to help you understand exactly what you can anticipate from your recovery period. This will include information about when you can expect to see your post-operative swelling subside, how to manage any discomfort you may experience, and how long you must wait before returning to your normal routine and strenuous activities (like aerobics or weight lifting). 

Our team will also be available to you throughout your recovery period, to address any concerns that may arise as you recover and get ready to enjoy your exciting new results.
