This patient is a 33 year old female who presented to my practice with interest in revision breast surgery. This patient had undergone a previous breast augmentation 8 years ago by another surgeon where saline anatomical implants had been placed over her chest muscles. The patient was unhappy with her firm, unnatural breast appearance and wished to have revision surgery.
For this patient, I recommended multiple maneuvers to improve her breast appearance. First, I recommended changing her implants from saline to silicone cohesive gel for a softer, more natural look and feel. Secondly, I recommended switching from over to under the chest muscles for a more blended look to the upper chest and more tissue coverage. Finally, I recommended a vertical (lollipop scar) breast lift to reshape the breasts and improve the nipple positions.
During surgery I placed Mentor smooth, round, moderate-plus profile cohesive silicone gel implants, using 350cc in the right and 375cc in the left and performed all of the above-mentioned maneuvers. The patient recovered very well after surgery and was extremely happy with her much softer, more natural and aesthetically pleasing breasts.
