Breast Augmentation (Corrective) Case #417
The patient is a 31-year-old female who had previously undergone a bilateral breast augmentation by another surgeon. The patient was noted to have a medial malposition on the right breast with a flattening of the right lateral breast and inferior malposition on both sides with the left being significantly worse than the right.
I felt that complex revision with reconstruction of her inner pockets via scar tissue tightening and capsule release would give the patient the best overall results. We discussed possibly exchanging her implants. However, I explained that if the current sizes appeared to be symmetrical after correction of the pockets, I would recommend leaving the original implants in place as they were only three years old.
During surgery, I used a "popcorn" technique to tighten the areas of excess space, while releasing the areas where the capsule was too tight. I used oversewing techniques to further reinforce my results.
After surgery, the patient recovered well and was very happy with her improved symmetry.
