Testimonial for Revision of a Prior Breast Lift and Breast Augmentation
Revision of a prior breast lift or breast augmentation surgery is complex and requires a thoughtful approach. Recently, I had the opportunity to help someone with this. Rather than my explaining it, we will let her do the talking. She describes her experience so eloquently in her RealSelf review copied below.

“Dr. Tannan is a brilliant surgeon and physician! She inquires in a way that creates an honest, two-way dialogue on desired and realistic surgical expectations. She sets herself apart from many in that she listens!
I met her after having two failed breast surgeries from another local doctor. I was a surgical challenge, requiring Dr. Tannan to perform a six-hour total breast reconstruction to correct the devastating results of what should have been routine surgeries. The original surgery was an implant removal and breast lift in which the breasts’ support structure, the infra-mammary fold (IMF) was damaged. As a result, my breast tissue slid three-five inches below my bra-line. The revision outcome was equally devastating. That surgeon told me he had no idea why both surgeries failed and that “trying a second revision” was his only option.
Dr. Tannan, on the other hand, offered me hope. She spent hours with me before my surgery- meticulously outlining her plan, possible complications and expectations for outcomes. She made herself and her staff fully available for my questions and concerns. Dr. Tannan performed my surgery flawlessly. She was accompanied by a surgical team that was exceptional – dynamic, engaging, and thorough in their explanations. Thanks to them, I wasn’t nauseous post-op and my pain was completely controlled. Dr. Tannan’s entire staff is amazing. There is a family feel that reflects in the attentive treatment of its patients. Dr. Tannan and her team will make you feel heard and valued. They exceeded all of my expectations!”
