What is Elite MD Breast Revision ?
An Elite MD Breast Revision is a procedure for rebuilding the breast after a mastectomy has been performed. The hope is to restore the breast to a shape and size similar to their condition prior to surgery. Saline filled breast implants may be used during the reconstruction or tissue may be taken from other parts of the body. If needed, the nipple and areola can also be reconstructed in an additional surgery. If the breast has not been damaged through treatment and scarring has not developed, breast revision can be done at the time of the mastectomy. If not, a second surgery is needed to do the repair work.
Benefits of an Elite MD Breast Revision
An Elite MD Breast Revision can improve the shape of the body and lead to greater self esteem. Clothing fits better, and an external prosthesis is unnecessary. At least ninety-eight percent of women who have had a mastectomy opt for breast revision afterwards.
What is the Recovery Time of an Elite MD Breast Revision?
Patients may spend up to a week in the hospital after an Elite MD Breast Revision and will have a drainage tube to remove fluids for several days. The doctor will prescribe medication for soreness and pain during the first week or two of recovery, but the discomfort should begin to abate within three weeks. It can take up to two full years for the breast tissue to heal completely, and scars may always be somewhat noticeable. Sex, strenuous exercise, and heavy lifting are not advised until at least four to six weeks after breast revision.
Do I need Anesthesia for an Elite MD Breast Revision?
General anesthesia is used for the most invasive surgical procedures during breast revision, but later detail work may be done using a sedative with local anesthesia to numb the surgical site.
Is the Elite MD Breast Revision Safe?
Studies show that breast revision done with implants does not lead to cancer, autoimmune system disorders, or connective tissue diseases. Implants may hide malignant tumors that develop later so patients should be vigilant about breast exams. Capsular contraction occurs after some breast implant procedures. In these cases, the skin tightens around the implant, making the breast feel hard.
Do I need to Prepare for the Elite MD Breast Revision?
Patients who smoke should stop several months before the scheduled surgery. Certain vitamins, herbs, and medicines which have a thinning effect on the blood should be discontinued before surgery to prevent excessive bleeding. A complete medical examination with blood work is commonly ordered before surgery.
What our patients are saying about Elite MD
“Well I was going to wait a couple more weeks to write this review, but I’m soooo extremely happy with my breast lift and new implant results right now!!!
My case was a revision and I was very worried about the outcome. I kept researching about all the risks involved when doing breast work for the second time. The doctor who did my first procedure (out of state) did not explain much about what to expect in the future. Back then I was just so excited to get implants. They looked great for the first 5 years. I had some changes in weight which impacted them.
Dr. Bansal is like no other doctor. When you first meet him, you will know he is the one! From consult, to pre op, to procedure day, to post op- he is on point. I trust him. The staff is amazing too! Of course, Board Certified. His plastic surgeon assistant Dr. Pao was in my case too. He has a team of experts.
Dr. Bansal will educate you more than any doctor you will meet and takes his time. You will appreciate the clear and thorough communication. You will leave feeling at ease and aware of what to expect. The worry will go away and all you have is the excitement of getting the procedure done. Being mentally prepared is priceless!
I remember when I was at my pre op I met a nice lady in the waiting room who was going to get a breast revision, too. She was on her way out and said Dr. Bansal also just did her daughter’s breast revision! I got to see her pictures and they were amazing!
It is very important to me that the doctor who does my procedure have tremendous experience in revision work. I found out that over half of Dr. Bansal’s work is doing revision and correcting other doctors work. Dr. Bansal is also a trainer, he trains other doctors on body sculpting, breast, face, etc.
I know a lot of people shop online looking for doctors. Sometimes the focus is on a picture. You need to know that the doctor cannot make you look like a certain picture you find – it will depend on your anatomy. Dr. Bansal is very clear about this. He will guide you to what is realistic for your body type. He will tell you the truth.
All around amazing experience with Dr. Bansal at Elite MD. I can’t wait to have some Vaser liposuction body sculpting next year! Highly recommend this place!!!” – by Lavander S.
