How To Choose A Breast Revision Surgeon?

Choose_Breast_Revision_SurgeonWe know that it can be difficult to even start the process of looking for a plastic surgeon after you’ve already had surgery on your breasts. But we want all of our potential patients to know that there are very good and common reasons why women get a breast revision. Morristown patients who have had mastectomies, breast augmentation, breast reduction, or breast reconstruction, can still sometimes need changes or adjustments made in order to get the results they truly want.

As a woman and a Harvard-educated surgeon, Dr. Comizio is committed to making sure that every single one of our breast revision patients is 100% comfortable and get the results and appearance that match their inner beauty. Whether your implants need replacing, you’re ready for a different size implant, or if you need one of your breasts adjusted after a mastectomy, give Dr. Comizio a call today at (973) 775-9248.

The first step is to set up a convenient time for you to meet with Dr. Comizio in person at our office. She will talk with you in depth about what your goals are, your concerns, and answer any questions you might have about breast revision. Morristown patients will also undergo an examination at this visit. Dr. Comizio has worked with hundreds of breast revision patients and does everything she can to make you feel comfortable and secure throughout the entire process.

Here is a quick checklist for you to use as you start to search for the breast revision surgeon that is right for you.

What to Look for in a Surgeon for Breast Revision

Morristown patients often tell us how hard it is to find a good plastic surgeon. Take a look below at some of the most important characteristics and qualifications you should look for.

  • Personality – While it isn’t a popularity contest, one of the most important things you should look for is a surgeon that makes you feel comfortable. You’re going to end up spending a lot of time with your surgeon and if you don’t get along it can make for an unpleasant experience.
  • Board Certified – It’s important to ensure that your plastic surgeon is “board certified.” The reason why, is that medical board certification requires member doctors to undergo additional training and they ensure that your doctor is also ethical. For example, Dr. Comizio is board-certified by the National Board of Medical Examiners and the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).
  • Breast Revision Awards – Another important factor to research is if your surgeon has received any awards specific to breast revision. Dr. Comizio was honored at the American Cancer Society’s 100th Anniversary Diamond Ball for her work with breast cancer reconstruction.
  • Patient Endorsements – There’s that old saying that goes “the proof is in the pudding.” Make sure that your surgeon has patients advocating for her on blogs and websites. Check out our Case Studies [link to:] where you can see actual videos and patient interviews.

We know it can be hard to admit that you need breast revision. Morristown patients have told us that they feel embarrassed about their need to get additional plastic surgery. That’s exactly why Dr. Comizio specializes in breast reconstruction and revision. She’s built her entire practice on helping women feel great about how their bodies look. Give us a call today at (973) 775-9248 and we’ll get you in for an in depth conversation with Dr. Comizio at your convenience.
