Restore Your Confidence With a Breast Revision

Cosmetic surgery, like any surgery, is not without unanticipated outcomes. Revision breast surgery focuses on providing solutions for patients in these particular situations. Capsular contracture, breast implant malposition, implant rupture, and desire for size change are some of the more common concerns addressed in women who have previously undergone cosmetic breast surgery. Because the surgeon must deal with factors such as scar tissue as well as patient trepidation, breast revision in Charlotte, NC requires a high degree of skill and attention to detail, so choosing an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Pratt is ideal for ensuring a successful outcome.
