Breast Augmentation: Correction

Breast Surgery Correction

Corrective breast surgery is often much more complicated than the primary operation. The assessment and planning has to take into account a more difficult environment then the original procedure. For this reason, secondary (or corrective) breast surgery is usually more expensive and takes much more time to perform. It may, however, have components that are rebatable through your health fund. 



Some of the issues which lead women to seek corrective breast augmentation surgery include:


Breast implant revision surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and is usually a day-only procedure. There is minimal pain after the procedure and this is usually controlled with simple analgesia. All your sutures are usually self-dissolving and your dressings are waterproof so you can start having a shower from the day after your surgery. You will be given a garment to wear and this is to be worn for 6 weeks post-operatively.

Most people can return to a level of daily duties the next day but this can vary on an individual basis so when planning for this surgery we would suggest you plan to have:

A week off work for office-based jobs
10-14 days off work for more physical-type work
Minimal driving for a week following the surgery



If you are considering a breast augmentation revision surgery, then it is important that you are informed of the potential risks, complications and side effects of this surgery.

While all care is taken to minimise or totally avoid these complications and side effects, complications may and do occur despite the best medical care. It is important that you carefully read and understand the risk factors and they will be discussed in more detail when you have your consultation with your surgeon.
