Conveniently Located in Upper Kirby to serve Houston

Your Plastic Surgery Revision in Houston will be performed by Dr. Steely at his surgery center or First Surgical Hospital in Houston, TX.

Plastic surgery is commonly referred to as the combination of art and science. It takes a skilled surgeon to perform plastic surgery and provide results that leave patients not only satisfied but in love with their results. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and many patients find themselves in need of plastic surgery revision.

With just a quick search on the internet, you can find pictures of poorly performed plastic surgeries with unsightly results. These results may be due to an untrained surgeon, a surgeon who does not specialize in cosmetic plastic surgery, or complications that arise during healing, which are out of the surgeon’s control.

Houston plastic surgeon Dr. R. Lee Steely of Steely Plastic Surgery has performed revision plastic surgery on many patients who had their original procedures performed by different surgeons and were unhappy with their results. Dr. Steely uses a variety of techniques to get the look you were trying to get the first time, if not better.

Common Reasons for Revision Plastic Surgery

Revision plastic surgery is performed to resolve issues with the results of plastic surgery for the face, breasts, or body. In many cases, revision surgery is needed when the results of the original procedure do not align with the patient’s aesthetic goals. Dr. Steely often performs revision surgery to correct poor results provided by other plastic surgeons.

In other cases, revision plastic surgery is necessary to address complications that may have occurred post-surgery, such as capsular contracture following breast augmentation with implants. Revision surgery can also be performed to “touch-up” the results of a prior surgery that may have changed over time due to aging and other factors.

Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon

Ideally, you will not need to undergo revision plastic surgery due to poor results from your surgeon. To ensure you are getting the best care possible, make sure the provider you choose is a board-certified plastic surgeon. Plastic surgeons must complete extensive training and testing requirements to become board-certified and must uphold rigorous standards for patient safety.

Dr. Steely is dual board-certified and specializes in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, which is why so many patients seek him out to perform their revision procedures.

What is revision plastic surgery?
Revision plastic surgery refers to a secondary procedure performed to correct or improve the results of an initial surgery.
Why would I need revision plastic surgery?
Patients seek revision surgery for a variety of reasons:

  • Unsatisfactory results
  • Complications (scarring, infection, or asymmetry)
  • Natural changes (aging, weight fluctuations, or other health conditions)
How is revision plastic surgery different from initial surgery?
Revision procedures often present more challenges than primary surgeries. Dr. Steely performing revision surgery will navigate scar tissue, altered anatomical planes, and potential tissue loss, which requires a high level of skill and expertise.
Is recovery from revision plastic surgery different from initial surgery?
Recovery from revision plastic surgery can be more complex:

  • Longer recovery time: The healing process may take longer due to the delicate nature of correcting a previous surgery.
  • Increased sensitivity: Areas operated on more than once might be more sensitive during recovery, requiring careful management.
  • Enhanced monitoring: More frequent follow-up visits may be necessary to monitor progress and ensure that the recovery is on track without complications.
Are there higher risks associated with revision plastic surgery?
Yes, revision surgeries can carry higher risks compared to primary surgeries. The presence of scar tissue, changes in elasticity, and reduced blood supply to the operated areas can increase the likelihood of complications.
What should my expectations be for my results?
While revision surgery can significantly improve initial results and patient satisfaction, achieving perfection is often more challenging. During your consultation, Dr. Steely will discuss what is realistically achievable through revision plastic surgery.
