Most patients are happy with the results following breast augmentation surgery. However, there are cases when the results are not satisfactory enough. Dr. Lemonas has helped many patients who were not pleased with their first surgery that was performed in another medical centre.
Women seek breast implant revision for several reasons; implants may be too big or too small, the occurrence of visible rippling, implants that have become hard or have lost symmetry. What is more, some instances, results may begin to deteriorate several years after the procedure. No matter how well your first breast augmentation goes, it is likely that you will require a revision at some point in the future.
Dr. Lemonas feels that the real focus should be in prevention of these problems rather than in their treatment and his experience combined with his systematic approach has minimized these revisions in Belgravia Medical Centre's patients.
Is it the right procedure for me?
You should consider breast implants revision if you experience any of the following:
- Loss of implant volume
- Ruptured implant
- Dissatisfaction with implant size
- Capsular contracture, or tightening of scar tissue
- Change in position of implants
- Stretching caused by weight gain
Before breast implants revision
Belgravia Medical Centre and Dr. Charalambos Lemonas believe in transparency and take your health seriously.
During your initial consultation, our team of plastic surgeons describes in detail and discusses in length the breast implant revision procedure with you. We listen to your preferences, evaluate them and ensure that your wishes are compatible with your lifestyle and medical history. It goes without saying that during initial consultation our team of experts will answer every question you might have.
Initial consultation includes topics such as discussion on your desires and expectations, medical conditions and allergies, use of medication, alcohol and tobacco and previous surgeries.
Afterwards, your personal plastic surgeon will evaluate your general health status, discuss the options available to you and the likely outcomes, examine and measure your body and show you before and after photographs of past patients who have undergone the same surgery as the one you want. This way we ensure that you have a complete understanding of the results you will attain.
After the procedure
You are not taking your journey to self confidence, youth and beauty alone. Dr. Lemonas and his team support you 100% before, during and after your procedure. Your preoperative visit takes place one week before surgery and during it we will provide you a handout with specific instructions to follow after the operation. These include postoperative care at home and prescriptions for medications.
Most patients are able to resume their usual activities and return to work in about one week. It is important to refrain from performing strenuous activity in the first two to three weeks after surgery. The results of breast revision will be noticeable immediately after surgery and will continue to improve over the coming weeks as swelling and bruising subside. The results of breast revision will be long lasting if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and steady body weight.
It goes without saying that we design a schedule of follow up appointments to closely monitor your progress and make your recovery fast and easy.
