Revision Surgery (Fixing Botched Procedures)
WHAT IS REVISION SURGERY?
Revision surgery is surgery done to correct issues related to previous surgery, commonly known as fixing botched procedures. Many patients come to Dr. Stout because they feel their past surgery left them with a “surgical” or overdone appearance and find they are unsatisfied with the finished look. Everyone has seen photos on TV or in magazines of celebrities who have had too much or poorly done cosmetic surgery, leaving them with a strange, unnatural, obviously surgical look.
WHY CHOOSE DR. STOUT FOR REVISION SURGERY?
It is not uncommon that other surgeons ask for help from Dr. Stout when they need advice and guidance. Dr. Stout is an adjunct clinical professor at the University of Southern California and devotes part of his time to teaching other surgeons.
I AM INTERESTED. HOW SHOULD I PROCEED?
Dr. Stout’s goal during the consultation is to provide the patient with information and teach them as much as possible. He begins by listening and will ask the patient what they would like to discuss and what their goals are. The patient’s input is very important. This allows Dr. Stout to work together with the patient through the decision-making process and establish a plan based upon their goals. He believes that knowledge is empowering as it enables his patients to make decisions with confidence and makes them a better partner in the entire process.
Dr. Stout is happy to have the patient bring a family member or friend to the consultation to ask questions and listen. He encourages patients to bring up any concerns that they may have. His consultations are designed to understand each patient’s situation, teach them and give them honest advice so they leave with useful knowledge with which to consider their options.
If you are considering this procedure, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Stout.
