What is Dr. Jacobs policy on revision surgery?
is Dr. Jacobs’ policy to stand behind his work. No effort is spared in the operating room to provide the patient with a smooth, flat and contoured chest. Recurrence or re-growth of breast tissue is extraordinarily rare. However, much more common (though still rare) is the unpredictable development of scar tissue on the chest or directly beneath the nipple/areolar complex as a result of the patient’s unique and individual healing processes. This may require one injection or a series of injections of medication to “melt away” the scar tissue. If these are done at all, they will not begin until at least three to four months or longer after surgery. There is no charge for these injections. If revision surgery is recommended by Dr Jacobs, then there will be no charge for the surgery but there will be a minimal charge for sedation anesthesia provided by the anesthesiologist. It is policy of this office to offer these free services for up to one year after surgery.
