Age: 47 years Height: 5’ 4” Weight: 127 pounds
Preop: 34 B
Postop: 34 C Implant Size: 275 cc moderate plus silicone implants Incision/Location: inframammary, submuscular pocket reassignment Notes: This patient underwent silicone breast augmentation in her early 20s and presented with bilateral ruptured silicone implants with extracapsular gel on the right side. Her original surgery was performed via an inframammary incision (in the crease) on top of the muscle (subglandular). Removal of both ruptured implants and removal of extracapsular gel was required. The patient desired reaugmentation in order to maintain shape and volume. She selected a 275 cc moderate plus profile implant. Her new implants were placed beneath the muscle (pocket reassignment) to give a more natural look and to reduce the risk of recurrent capsular contracture. Her previous inframammary incision was used. Her shape and contour are much improved, and she has a natural contour. Patient shown 5 months after surgery.
