RIPPLING BREAST CORRECTION
Before & After Gallery
This 48 year old woman had undergone multiple previous breast implant procedures. She presented with several problems related to her existing implants, including synmastia (loss of normal cleavage with detachment of the skin over the breastbone) and severe waviness and rippling most evident when she leans forward. The correct surgery consisted of a capsulotomy to repair the abnormal medial extent of the periprosthetic pocket, insertion of a Strattice acellular dermal matrix graft to reinforce the repair and insertion of a new pair of 375 cc Moderate Profile Plus silicone gel filled breast implants. Her postoperative result is shown six months after the corrective surgery. There has been correction of the synmastia with restoration of normal cleavage in between the breasts and almost complete resolution of all the waviness and rippling noticeable in the breast when the patient leans forward.
This 26 year old woman had several previous operations by another plastic surgeon and presents with severe periprosthetic capsular contracture (Baker Grade 3) as well as waviness and rippling of the upper pole of her breasts and excessively-wide cleavage. The implants were inserted in the subglandular position. The corrective surgery consisted of removal of her silicone gel filled implants, conversion from the subglandular to the subpectoral pocket to create a new space and modify the position of the implant and then reinsertion of the same silicone gel filled breast implants. The patient’s result is shown six months after her corrective surgery with complete resolution of abnormal waviness and rippling of the breasts, complete release of the capsular contracture and much improved overall aesthetic configuration.
