At PRMA, we frequently perform corrective surgery on patients who are unhappy with their results from surgery performed at other institutions. This can involve anything from fine tuning to a complete “re-do” reconstruction depending on the specific situation. Re-do surgery is typically covered by insurance.
Corrective Surgery Is An Option After Implant Or Autologous Flap Reconstruction That Didn’t Work Out According To Plan.
We see many patients who have ongoing issues after implant reconstruction. Complications include capsular contracture, significant breast asymmetry, chronic pain and even infection. In these situations we usually recommend removal of the implant and surrounding scar tissue, and further reconstruction using the patient’s own tissue. Procedures like the DIEP flap allow us to recreate a “natural”, soft, warm breast without the use of implants. Sensory nerve reconstruction can also be performed during DIEP flap surgery to help restore breast feeling after a mastectomy.
We also see patients who are unhappy with their autologous flap reconstruction results. The extent of the corrective surgery required will ultimately depend on the severity of the problem. Procedures frequently include fat grafting, breast reshaping, scar revision, recontouring of the donor site, or even further flap procedures.
Hear From Our Patients
Oh what I would give to have found PRMA before my mastectomy, prosthesis, implants and 6 plus years of not being satisfied. I thank God every day for bringing PRMA into my life and I thank them for doing what they do so well. My wish is that PRMA reaches as many women possible early on so they too can benefit from the amazing work that they do for breast cancer patients. I promote PRMA every chance I have!
I would like to say is throughout the whole procedure from the first procedure, to the second procedure, to my final procedures I never felt less than a woman. I like my breast, and so the entire time I never felt like I was not a woman at any point. So definitely I would recommend PRMA to anyone and everyone.
I’m super excited and love the results and feel amazing. I want to let anyone listening to this know that I had the worst anxiety before my surgery thinking of everything you can imagine. I can say that this was 100% the right choice for me I love the way that I look. The process was much easier than what I expected.
I knew I wanted to have a mastectomy, but I didn’t know about breast reconstruction. Dr. Ledoux gave me ALL the options I had, and I really appreciated that!
