FUSN: What are the common plastic surgeries that are being reversed?
DW: Breast Reduction patients wanting to be enlarged again; requiring a breast augmentation. Breast Augmentation patients wanting to be small again; removal of the breast implants. Liposuction patients in the area of the hips wanting to have more fullness and curves; thus requiring fat injections.

FUSN: Sounds like it can get a bit pricey, so what’s the average cost of each type of surgery you mentioned?
DW: The average global cost including anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, and facility fee for a breast augmentation after a breast reduction is approximately $6500. The average global cost including anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, and facility fee for removal of the breast implants is approximately between $4700-$6000 depending on the complexity of the operation. The average global cost including anesthesia, surgeon’s fee, and facility fee for fat injections is approximately $5200.

FUSN: How many surgeries can it take to undo the surgery in the first place?
DW: It truly varies with each individual patient and what they want undone. In many cases, one procedure is sufficient, in others more than one operation may be necessary.

FUSN: Are there any surgeries that cannot be undone?
DW: In general, surgeries that remove skin are very difficult to undo since skin cannot be easily replaced.

FUSN: How can prospective patients find a qualified doctor to perform this kind of surgery?
DW: Word of mouth from other patients or physicians who may know a well qualified plastic surgeon is a good way. The American Society of Plastic Surgeon’s website is a good starting point as well. Patients should make sure that their surgeon is board certified and trained at a quality medical institution.
