Age: 62 years Height: 5’ 2” Weight: 165 pounds
Preop: 36 C
Postop: 36 C Implant Size: 350 cc moderate plus silicone implants Incision/Location: full mastopexy, submuscular pocket reassignment Notes: This patient was found to have ruptured silicone implants by MRI which required explantation. Her original implants were place over 25 years ago elsewhere. The patient desired replacement with new silicone implants. The original implants were placed in the subglandular position (on top of the pectoralis muscle). A pocket reassignment to the submuscular position was performed (the implant was placed under the muscle). The previous subglandular pocket was closed with sutures. A full breast lift was performed to improve overall shape and to position the nipple higher in a more pleasing position. This patient is shown shown 4 months after surgery.
