Breast Corrective Surgery
This treatment can be used to revise the unsatisfactory outcomes from surgical procedures that have led to uneven or asymmetric breasts, including: breast augmentation, breast uplift, mastectomy surgery or breast reduction.
Due to an increase in recent years of people reporting feeling unhappy about the results from their breast surgery, this treatment is becoming requested more and more often.
It may be the case that in previous years a person has visited a different surgeon for a breast procedure and has found that the expected goals have not been fulfilled when the final result have developed. Patients have expressed having been left with breasts that are droopy or unbalanced, as well as experiencing conditions where the breast(s) are too bottom heavy or appear to be less separately defined.

Having made the decision to undergo breast surgery could have been one that has taken a lot of consideration and not necessarily so easy to make. Feelings of unhappiness and / or lack of self-confidence is often the reason for seeking this solution, anticipating that after the treatment has taken place it will improve the person’s well-being. However, in some cases the procedure has not successfully corrected the initial concerns, leaving the affected person feeling it has been a waste of time as they still feel the same way they did before, or even worse.
Thankfully, as time has gone on, many improvements have evolved and up to date techniques ensure the dissatisfaction from these procedures has greatly decreased. Surgeons that are approached with requests to perform corrective surgery to the breast, are more likely to find the surgery was performed some years ago (needs filling out).
There is no one type of procedure that Mr. Marando can say he will perform as each person will present with their own individual concern.
Through arranging a consultation with Mr. Marando, he will be able to assess your condition and what you were hoping to achieve. As well as discussing the previous surgery, he will address issues surrounding old and new implants, scarring and the outcomes you will be able to achieve this time round.

Each operation has its own surgical techniques and end results. The length of time in which the operation will take, will depend on the option that has been decided upon, as too will the type of anaesthesia that will be used and whether you will be treated as a day case or will need an overnight stay in hospital. Mr. Marando will fully inform you of all these details prior to the treatment.
Aftercare advice generally consists of a period of convalescence, time off work and driving as well as wearing a supportive bra.
