Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation usually takes one to one and a half hours to perform. After you have changed into a gown and had your intravenous line started, you will be given a dose of intravenous antibiotics as a precautionary measure. Dr. Revis will use a surgical marking pen to identify certain landmarks on your chest. This ensures proper implant placement and symmetry post-operatively. He will also review the entire operative plan with you including incision location and implant type and size. After you are properly anesthetized in the operating room, Dr. Revis will inject a solution of local anesthetics along the borders of your breasts, underneath the intended incision site, and into the muscle under which the implants will be placed. This injection solution consists of a special combination of lidocaine, (bupivicaine) and epinephrine. This accomplishes several objectives. First, the epinephrine causes vasoconstriction of the area, reducing your potential for bleeding and bruising. Secondly, the lidocaine provides a rapid numbing of the area. Although you are asleep, this prevents the brain from registering any pain from the region during the operation. Studies have shown that this preemptive analgesia actually decreases your sensation of pain post-operatively, decreases the amount and length of time you will need to take pain medication post-operatively, and also leads to a more rapid return to normal daily activities.

Facelift
Facelift surgery usually takes three to four and a half hours to perform, depending on whether or not you are having additional procedures performed at the same time. After you are properly anesthetized, Dr. Revis will make the minimal incisions necessary for insertion of the endoscopic camera. Through these limited incisions, Dr. Revis works with small instruments to elevate the skin of the face and neck. He may perform liposuction in the jowl area or beneath the chin if you have these troublesome collections of fat. After the skin is elevated, Dr. Revis repositions the cheek tissues and tightens the underlying muscles, or SMAS. With very precise suture techniques, these tissues are resuspended and the muscles are tightened. After the completion of this step, Dr. Revis trims any extra skin that is present. After tightening the muscles of the neck, Dr. revis will carefully close the incisions to minimize your scars. A drain may be placed beneath the incision. This slender, rubber tube assists in draining any fluid that may accumulate beneath the incision and delay your healing. Dr. Revis may also chose to use a new product called Tissue Glue. This product helps your body heal and minimizes the fluid that may empty into your drain, allowing the drains to be removed earlier or may make a drain unnecessary. Afterwards, a sterile dressing is applied to the incisions.
 
Gynecomastia
Male breast reconstruction takes one to two hours to perform, depending on what type of reduction you are having performed. The most simple type involves the use of liposuction. This is for younger males with good skin elasticity. Dr. Revis makes several tiny incisions and passes a thin, hollow metal cannula back and forth through the enlarged breast tissue. This cannula is attached to a suction device that removes the excess tissue. At the completion of the procedure, Dr. Revis closes the incisions very carefully so that after healing the scars are virtually imperceptible. If you have less elastic skin or more extensive gynecomastia, Dr. Revis may have to make an incision around the nipples to remove the excess tissue directly and to remove excess skin. At the completion of the procedure your scar will lie in the natural border of the areola (the pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) and the surrounding skin. If a large amount of tissue is removed, Dr. Revis may place a slender rubber drainage tube underneath each incision to drain any fluid that may accumulate. You will also wear an elastic garment called a compression garment that decreases bruising and encourages the wounds to heal more rapidly.

Rhinoplasty
Rhinoplasty may be performed through a variety of incisions, depending on your individual needs. Dr. Revis will make the appropriate incision after you have been adequately anesthetized. He then lifts the overlying skin off of the underlying framework. Dr. Revis will reshape the cartilage and sometimes the bones of the nose to achieve the appearance you desire. After your surgery has been completed, he may place one or more stents in or on your nose. If you have work performed on your nasal septum, Dr. Revis will place internal stents in your nostrils. If you have your nasal bones reshaped, Dr. Revis will also place an external stent over your nose which serves to protect it in the early post-operative period.
 
Thigh Lift
 
Tummy Tuck
Tummy tuck surgery may be performed as an outpatient procedure, or you may choose to stay in the hospital overnight. If you choose to go home, you will recover in the recovery room for approximately one hour prior to being released in the company of a friend or family member. We also have a private duty nurse available to care for you in the comfort and privacy of your own home if you so choose. The antibiotics that were prescribed during your preoperative visit should be taken twice daily beginning on the evening prior to surgery. Continue this medication until it is gone. The pain medication prescribed by Dr. Revis during your preoperative visit should be taken fairly regularly, every four hours or so, during the first 24 hours (when you are not asleep, of course). Most patients find that they are able to transition to Tylenol after three or four days. It is not safe to drive a car within 24 hours of taking pain medication, as your reflexes and alertness may be altered. You should plan to take it easy following your surgery. No strenuous activities, heavy lifting (over 20 pounds), aerobic exercises, swimming, contact sports, tennis, or golf should be planned for the first three weeks. As Dr. Revis monitors your recovery, he will advise you when it is safe to resume specific activities.
