This is patient in her late 20s. She came to see us because of her displeasure with her breast augmentation. She had her surgery elsewhere. At her earlier surgery the surgeon had used 375 cc silicone gel implants in subglandular location of her breasts. She did not like the fact that her left implant had shifted outwards. This had left behind emptiness next to her left cleavage. She also felt that her implants were too heavy.
She had sought multiple opinions from other plastic surgeons before seeing us at our center. All her other opinions recommended using some variant or the other of synthetic or allograft sling to correct her implant drift.
We are against using slings for cosmetic surgery. In our practice slings are only useful for breast reconstructions but are unnecessary in cosmetic surgery of breast. We like to use existing natural structures to reshape and recontour breasts.
We tightened her existing breast skin envelope to hold left implant in more desirable location and improve the aesthetics of her breasts. We also reduced her implant size by 25 cc and used 350 cc breast implants to reduce the weight of her breasts. This would reduce her future breast sagging.
Post-surgery photos are taken six months after her revisional mammoplasty. She is pleased.
