Re-operation or revision is a key indicator of the quality of the breast augmentation procedure/ experience delivered by a given practice. Dr. Adams has dedicated his career through research and education to minimizing the re-operation rate and maximizing the patient experience in breast augmentation.
Re-operation rates and recovery are the 2 most important objective measures of the quality of the breast augmentation procedures being delivered and the best indicator of the type of experience the patient will have.
Since these are easily measured patients should be careful to determine what these key indices are for any given surgeon. One problem is many surgeons do not know or do not want to make their actual re-operation and recovery rates public. Re-operation rates in FDA clinical trial studies have ranged from 15 – 25 %, and often cited for being excessively elevated.
Dr. Adams is one of 2 surgeons in the world who have published in peer reviewed journals his re-operation and recovery rates for breast augmentation.
This publication was published in the world’s premier plastic surgery journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In this publication the re-operation rate was 2.8% and 99% of patients had a documented return to normal activities of daily living.
Using the same techniques that produced these data, Dr. Adams has spent the past 10 years refining the patient experience in breast augmentation and breast surgery in general.
Make sure to verify re-operation and recovery – they matter!
