Breast Correction of Surgery Done Elsewhere Cases

This woman presented after previous breast implant surgery and breast lift elsewhere. Her problem included too large areola, too low areola, poor scarring, boxy shape, and symmastia (a problem where the implants joined in her upper central chest).

I removed her previous implants along with most of the scar capsule. I used part of her internal scar capsule is an innovative procedure to close off the previous implant space – correcting the symmastia (uni-boob). I then recreated around space, excised her old scars and repositioned, elevated, and decreased the nipple and areola.

(See arrows) Now a very nice and shapely C cup breast!

This case represents the all too common occurrence of post-mastectomy secondary deformities after implant reconstruction. This patient came to me after her reconstruction was done by others at another institution.

The residual problems include, the nipple reconstruction is small and malpositioned. The implants are flat and lack projection.

The treatment involved two stages. First, reshaping of space (capsulectoplasty/capsulectomy) placement of high profile gel implant, later fat grafting and a new nipple reconstruction complete the outcome. A dramatic transformation.

This patient underwent an autoaugmentation breast lift by combining internal redirected flaps to create a round high breast.  She previously had an attempt at breast lift elsewhere unsuccessfully.  Now with outstanding ideal breast aesthetics.
