The before and after images below are of a patient who required revision (secondary) breast implant surgery for capsular contracture and upper pole rippling. Her original operation had been carried out approximately four years previously, placing 385 gm implants on top of the muscle (subglandular). The revisional surgery took 3 hours and involved:
1. Removal of the old implants and the surrounding scar tissue ( total capsulectomy)
2.Insertion of new, larger full profile round implants (450 gm) under the pectoral muscle (dual plane)
3. Carrying out breast uplift-reshaping (key-hole short horizontal scar augmentation mastopexy).
Results are at six months postoperatively.
