Revisional procedures are usually done after the completion of any oncologic treatments required for patients with breast cancer. Many revisional procedures are simple, consisting of a size or shape adjustment. Additionally, nipple reconstruction may be required if the nipple was removed at the time of the mastectomy.
Other revisional procedures are much more difficult requiring implant exchanges, fat transfer, or even flap salvage reconstruction. The surgeons at Longwood Plastic Surgery have gained over 40 years’ combined experience in this area. Each week at LPS patients undergo complex revisional breast reconstruction in an attempt to bring patients towards their ultimate goals.
