This female patient came into our offices seeking a breast augmentation revision one year after she had undergone a breast augmentation procedure elsewhere. During her breast augmentation procedure, 375CC moderate profile saline implants were used. As you can see from the “Before” pictures, her breast implants had bottomed out, creating an unfortunate, un-aesthetically pleasing contour to her breast profile.
She desired a repositioning of the implants, with increased fullness to her upper breast area, or as it is also known, the upper pole area. Her breast augmentation also resulted in repositioned, upwardly-pointing nipples that she also wanted to correct.
During the breast augmentation revision procedure, her saline implants were re-positioned and filled to 500 CC through an inframammary incision in order to give her upper breast area the fullness that she desired. The pocket in which the implant was held was then internally tightened to correct the bottoming out of the implant.
After fully recovering from her breast augmentation revision, the patient reported that she experienced not only the fullness to her upper breast area that she desired, but that she also experienced a corrected centering of the nipple, with the added correction to the upward-facing aspect of her nipples. This is due to the proper repositioning of the implant as well as the internal tightening of the implant pocket.
Before her breast augmentation revision, her breast were C-cups, and afterwards, due to her desired increase to the upper breast region and subsequent increase in size from 375CC to 500CC, the patient’s breast are now D-cups.
She has reported that she is extremely happy with her breast augmentation revision and is very satisfied with all the corrections as evident in the “After” pictures.
