5’4” 125lb. This patient had breast augmentation at age 19, with saline under the muscle 400cc. She did not like the scarring, wanted to be a bit bigger, and felt her implants had settled too low. We then did bilateral capsule tightening (capsulorrhaphy) and changed to 455cc saline. Her pictures 3 years later show her elevated, fuller at the top and better scar placement.
Breast Implant Revision / Replacement
SERVING SCOTTSDALE, PHOENIX, GILBERT, MESA, CHANDLER AND TEMPE, ARIZONA
At 18 yrs old this patient had above the muscle saline implants placed through the belly button (TUBA method). Now at 24, and after 2 kids ages 2 and 8, she presents with small, rippling implants that are very far apart. Our thought was to try and give her a wider, softer look so we put new saline implants 420ccR, 390ccL now under the muscle with an incision under the breast, going from a 34 Small C to a 34 Full C.
5’8” 125lb. 45 yr. old smoker had above the muscle breast augmentation 330cc saline at age 33. At age 35 her R implant eroded through the skin and was removed…for 10 years! With very thin skin, we put new implants 360cc silicone gel under the muscle and a Brazilian mastopexy to lift her, all in one operation.
This patient presented with exactly what most patients do NOT want. Very firm, round, fake breasts. She liked a larger breast size but wanted a more “natural” fake breast! We took her saline implants out from above the muscle, and through an incision under the breast, moved 600cc silicone gel to below the muscle. Big, but better, a 32 DD.
5’7” and at age 27 this patient underwent above the muscle augmentation with 550cc saline. Now 11 years later, she presents with droop and distortion and desiring a smaller, lifted breast. We changed her to 480cc saline, moved them to below the muscle and did a lift on top of that, now a 34 C.
