Breast Implant Revision Candidates
To be a good candidate for breast implant revision surgery you will need to be:
- A nonsmoker
- In generally good health
- Aware of the benefits and limitations of the procedure
- Aware of all possible risks and complications
- Prepared to take time off from work and certain activities
- Willing to closely follow Dr. Kofkoff’s pre and postoperative advice
Dr. Kofkoff is often able to use the same incision locations as your original surgery to help minimize postoperative scarring, but revision may result in visible signs of surgery for several months. This is different for every woman and something Dr. Kofkoff will cover in greater detail during your initial consultation.
