Revision surgery may be required for plastic surgery complications due to faulty surgery such as misplaced incisions, technical problems such as the right surgery for the wrong patient or patient factors beyond the control of the surgeon such as non-compliance with activity restrictions, breast capsule contracture or ruptured breast implants. Revision surgery is most common with cosmetic or reconstructive breast surgery followed by rhinoplasty. It is usually best that the revision surgery is performed by the primary surgeon but that is not always possible or reasonable. Patients can lose trust in their surgeon, surgeons may be uncomfortable reoperating etc. Finding a new surgeon can also be difficult because prospective surgeons may not want to take on the liability of another surgeon or may promise more than they can deliver. If you as a patient are searching for a new surgeon it is always best to bring medical records including and most importantly operative reports with you when you see a new surgeon. The more information your revision surgeon has the greater the chances you will be happy with the end result.
