Breast Augmentation Revision Patient 19

Age: 43 years
Height: 5’ 6”
Weight: 140 pounds
Preop: 36 D/DD
Postop: 36 D/DD

Implant Size: 425 cc Right 450 cc Left moderate plus silicone implants
Incision/Location: periareolar, submuscular, full mastopexy performed
Notes: This patient underwent saline breast augmentation in 1998 elsewhere via an inframammary submuscular approach. In 2013 she then underwent reaugmentation with a larger saline implant and a full mastopexy (breast lift). In She presented to Dr. Zemmel and Richmond Aesthetic Surgery surgery for revision, implant replacement and improvement in shape, texture, and symmetry. She desired a full, augmented look.

Bilateral implant exchange using smooth round moderate plus profile silicone implants was performed in conjuction with full mastopexy and scar revision. A substantial lower pole resection was performed. (A large amount of tissue was removed from the bottom part of the breast). This reduced the amount of sag on each side and increased upper breast fullness. The areolar diameters are now equal and her scars are less visible and are more hidden. She is shown 4 months after surgery and is pleased with her results.
