Sugar Land plastic surgeryCosmetic surgery is meant to improve your appearance. However, it may not always work out that way. If you are unhappy with the results of your plastic surgery, you may be able to undergo a revision procedure to correct the poor outcome you received. However, there are important things to consider before deciding whether a revision procedure is right for you.

Additional Surgery

The first thing to do when you experience a suboptimal result from your plastic surgery is to discuss it with your original surgeon. There may be a simple way to make it better. However, the mistake may require additional surgery or multiple steps to correct.

For any operation, the more times the area is traumatized with surgery and scarring, the harder it is to get a good result. It’s critical to determine all of the components of the problem and address them during a single operation. This method greatly decreases the amount of scarring as well as minimizes the chance for further surgery.

Cost

The next concern is cost. It can get expensive to have more involved corrective surgery because of the various steps that need to be taken within the operation. Dr. Malik Kutty will discuss your financial options with you. Oftentimes he encourages his patients to think about the amount of money spent on trying several simple methods versus fixing the problem all at once.

Surgeon Experience

When considering surgery to improve an aesthetic result, carefully consider the experience and training of your surgeon. The ability to do this type of procedure depends on having cared for patients with a wide variety of concerns.
