What is the recommended recovery time before having a modification performed on an original breast augmentation?
Thank you for your question. Normally, a period of at least three to six months is required to see the final result with the type of surgical procedure you have described. Consider obtaining a copy of your daughters operative report and pre-operative photographs from the original provider. Then, consider a consult with one of the many members of the ASAPS in your area. They are experts in corrective surgery. Best,
Gary R Culbertson, MD, FACS
This question is best answered by the Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who performed the original surgery.
Generally speaking, I recommend at least 6 and preferably 9 months for healing before having revision surgery after breast augmentation.
