She desired to be more comfortable and have improved shape and symmetry.

Removal of both breast implants was performed. The right implant was found to be ruptuted on reexploration and the implant and silionce material was removed. Th eleft implant was found to be intact. Complete capsulectomies were performed on both sides, and the previous subglandualr pocket was closed with sutures. Reconstruction was performed with smooth round moderate plus profile silicone implants placed in a new submuscular pocket. A full lift was then performed. Aceullar dermal matrix (alloderm) was placed along the lower portion of the breats to stabile the lower breast crease and to thicken the overlying soft tissue of the lower pole.
