Timeline PhotosAlways consider the setting when thinking about having any type of aesthetic surgery procedure. You should be cautious about receiving procedures outside of a medical setting, such as in a private home or at a “party.”⁠

If undergoing a surgical procedure outside of a hospital, the facility should be accredited by a recognized, national agency such as:⁠

• The American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities⁠

• Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). ⁠

All facilities should be state-licensed or Medicare certified. Check on the doctor’s hospital privileges. If a cosmetic surgical procedure is to be performed in an office or ambulatory surgery center, the surgeon should have privileges to perform the same procedure in an acute care hospital. ⁠

At some point, you may want to consider a breast revision to restore a more youthful breast contour and appearance. Typically patients consider breast revision surgery after pregnancy, weight fluctuations, leakage, and capsular contracture.

The surgery involves the removal and/or replacement of saline or silicone gel implants, which is performed to change the size or type of your implants and to correct any complications from your primary breast augmentation.

It’s important to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon you feel comfortable with and trust. Patients should be involved in making decisions concerning their implant size, position, and the location of the incision.
