What is Revision Surgery After Plastic Surgery?
- Posted on: May 10 2017
Plastic surgery procedures often involve surgery of the overlying skin which, invariably, results in some scar formation. That, and in addition to the fact that there is a subjective component of patient satisfaction, as well as some chance of recurrence of the initial problem, can make post-operative results somewhat unpredictable. Thus, in some situations, patients may require revisional or touch up surgeries in order to correct the unwanted scars or further improve the results sought for. The revisional surgeries are usually of smaller scales and quicker in duration, which can sometimes be performed in the office and with minimal use of local anesthesia.
