Breast Augmentation Revision Patient 21

Age: 40 years

Height: 5’ 9”

Weight: 135 pounds
Preop: 36 C
Postop: 36 full C
Implant Size: 475 cc moderate plus profile silicone implants
Incision/Location: Inframammary, submuscular
Notes: This patient underwent previous breast augmentation in 2003 with saline implants placed in the submuscular plane via an inframammary approach. She experienced rupture and deflation of the left implant in 2014. She presented to Dr. Zemmel and Richmond Aesthetic Surgery surgery with deflation of the left implant and breast asymmetry. She also desires more fullness and improved shape from her original augmentation.

Bilateral implant exchange and pocket revision was performed. The implants were replaced with smooth round moderate plus profile silicone implants. A 475 cc implant was used to increase fullness. The upper and medial portion of the pockets were opened to give upper pole fullness and increase cleavage. Capsulotomies were also performed to round out the lower pole of the breast. She is shown 5 months after surgery and is pleased with her results.
