[00:00:08.033] The corrective breast surgery [00:00:09.618] is any patient that's had previous breast surgery [00:00:12.400] and is unhappy with a certain aspect of the post-operative results. [00:00:19.142] This could be from augmentation, breast lift, or even breast reduction. [00:00:25.867] Patients that look in the mirror [00:00:29.242] and are unhappy with their appearance of their breasts after surgery [00:00:32.843] should always find out what's available to them. [00:00:37.467] The process of corrective breast surgery [00:00:39.218] depends on the surgery that's been performed. [00:00:42.092] For instance, if we have to remove and replace implants [00:00:45.958] and repair the pocket, [00:00:47.600] then that could take an hour and a half, two hours. [00:00:50.017] If we have to change out implants, [00:00:53.476] revise the pocket, and redo the entire lift, [00:00:57.042] that could take three or four hours to perform. [00:00:59.883] The recovery time for reoperative breast surgery is usually a weekend. [00:01:04.142] We tell folks if they get it done on Thursday, [00:01:05.934] they could be back to work on Monday. [00:01:08.008] They'll be a little sore, [00:01:09.443] but unless they're a woofer or a jackhammer operator, [00:01:13.325] they should be able to go back to work. [00:01:15.033] Here we do a lot of revision or corrective breast surgery. [00:01:19.333] There's a lot of patients that look for the cheapest price in town [00:01:23.001] or the social media favorite. [00:01:26.233] But we've found that going to the cheapest guy or the best-known [00:01:32.183] is not a guarantee of getting the results that you want.
