This is a 42 year old woman who had breast augmentation with saline implants almost 20 years previously. Over those 20 years she had developed progressive drooping of her breasts and lateral displacement of her saline implants. In preparation for her surgery, the saline implants were deflated in the office. In order to achieve improvement in the position of her new silicone gel implants and correct the drooping, she underwent removal of the deflated saline implants, breast pocket modification to center the new implants, and mastopexies (breast lift). She is shown before surgery (after implant deflation) and about four weeks post op. Her new silicone gel implants are 485cc for the right and 450cc for the left. Both new implants are SRX (highest) profile.

This is a 41 year old woman who had undergone previous breast augmentation by another plastic surgeon. She was not satisfied with the shape of the breasts and with the outward and downward sagging of the breasts and implants. She underwent full correction of the breasts by removing and replacing the old implants, closing the breast pockets laterally (outward), expanding the breast pockets medially (inward) and performing bilateral breast lift (mastopexy). She is shown before surgery and about 4 weeks post-op.

This is a 61 year old woman who had bilateral breast augmentation and breast lift (mastopexy) by another plastic surgeon six years previously. She had never been completely satisfied with the results because she felt that the breasts were too large and too droopy. She wished for the breasts to be smaller, more lifted, and more symmetrical in shape.

She underwent bilateral breast correction in the form of removal of the old breast implants, complete capsulectomy, and bilateral secondary breast lift to achieve a more proportioned, symmetrical and youthful result. She is shown before surgery and one month post-op.

Her old breast implants were removed and replaced by new smaller silicone gel implants. She also had bilateral mastopexy (breast lift surgery). She is shown before surgery and about 10 months post-op.

This is a 55 year old woman, mother one one, who had breast augmentation with silicone gel breast implants in 2008. Recently, she developed a spontaneous massive enlargement of the right breast over a 12 hour period. She had severe pain but no redness of the skin, no purplish discoloration, no fever or malaise. The possible causes included acute infection, hematoma, or seroma. She was taken to the operating room for exploration of the right breast pocket and definitive corrective surgery. A ruptured silicone gel implant was found in the right breast pocket, which also was filled with almost a liter of seroma fluid. The ruptured implant and seroma fluid were removed. A complete capsulectomy was performed. The opposite intact breast implant was also removed. Both pockets were irrigated with antibiotics and drain tubes were placed. Fluid cultures were negative, and the breast capsules were benign. The patient healed completely and uneventfully over the course of a few weeks. She is shown before surgery and six weeks post-op.
