The Difference between Breast Reconstruction and Breast Revision

At Southern Plastic Surgery, when we talk about reconstruction surgery, we’re referring to those who have made the decision to have their breasts reconstructed after losing one or both breasts in the surgical treatment of breast cancer (also known as a mastectomy). Other practices do not always make that distinction; they refer to reconstruction surgery as a procedure to “re-do” a previous augmentation, reduction, or lift. At SPS, we call this procedure a Breast Revision because the patient and Dr. Whiteman will work together to create a new vision to further enhance the breasts or to correct any problems seen with the patient’s current augmentation, reduction, or lift.

There is nothing more debilitating than being unhappy with your results – especially after having to undergo the surgical procedure and putting in the necessary recovery time. Being able to have this “re-do” procedure performed will once and for all give you the look and feel you’ve always desired. Those looking for a breast revision procedure come to Dr. Whiteman not just because of his double board certification, but because his skill and expertise in breast surgery is well respected and his results speak for themselves.

If you’ve undergone a surgical breast procedure but are less than satisfied with your results, there is an option available to you! Come in and see Dr. Whiteman for a consultation and he will discuss your ideal image with you and guide you down the Breast Revision surgery path.
