Revisional Breast Implants Bismarck


Diagnosis

A breast implant patient may elect to replace her implants and do a breast lift if she is having excessive hardness, drooping, wrinkling or rippling, wishes a change in implant size, or chooses to replace sub-glandular implants with a sub-pectorally placed implant.

Treatment

The procedure is performed by removing the old implant(s) and replacing them with a new implant. After the new implant is in place the nipple and areola may or may not need to be repositioned. Sometimes excess skin is removed if a lift is performed. A breast lift (mastopexy) does leave noticeable, permanent scars. In most cases, breast and nipple sensation can be maintained.

Results

The results are softer, less rippled and more up-lifted breasts.

Patient Case #5225

This 63 year old women had breast implants and a skin lift performed twice. Her current breasts implants are too hard, high and large. She is 5’4’’ and 162lbs.She wears a 36DD bra. The silicone implants-550cc were removed. A small breast reduction was also done along with a mastopexy. Her results are shown at one year. She is wearing a C cup.

Patient Case #5123

Augmentation Explantation: This 49 year old women is 5’5’’ and 125lbs, she had 315cc saline implants placed under the muscle seven years ago. She felt her D cup breasts were too heavy. The implants were removed and 168cc of her own fat was added to the top part of the breasts to avoid a deflated appearance. She is shown 3 months post op. 

Patient Case #3885

This 40 year old women is 5’2’’ and 105 lbs. She had saline implants placed on top of the muscle 20 years ago. Her right implant had dropped and the left got firm. She had a revision of the augmentation with removal of the saline implants and placement of textured silicone implants under the pectoralis major muscle, 350 cc high profile on each side. She is shown three months post op.

Patient Case #2734

 This 50 year old woman had a breast reduction many years earlier. Her breasts shrank over the years and another surgeon placed breast implants. She had three surgeries over the years. She then felt that her breasts were too large and too low as she was 5’6 and only 128 lbs. At surgery, 390cc gel implants were removed and 275cc gel implants were replaced after elevating the pockets. She now has smaller, uplifted breasts. The after photos are shown 3 months post op.

Patient Case #2741

 This woman in her 40′s is tall, 5’10 and 150 lbs. She had breast augmentation over 10 years ago with textured saline implants placed on top of the muscles. Over the years she developed ripples and she felt her breasts were too big (DD) and too low. She had revisional breast surgery. The 550cc textured implants were reduced to 375cc, smooth, saline implants placed under the muscle. She also had a breast lift. The breasts are now higher, better shaped, and there are no visible ripples. She wears a D cup.

Patient Case #2748

 This woman is in her 20′s. She is 5’8 and 120 lbs. She had 505cc saline breast implants placed partly under the muscle. She did well and went from a 34A cup to a 34D. She then had a baby and breast fed. She developed hardness and distortion of the left implant 18 months later. The scar tissue was removed, and a new implant was placed in a second surgery. Her photos are shown 14 months after the 2nd surgery.

Patient Case #2753

 This 45 year old woman had textured implants placed under the breast and on top of the muscle in the past. Over the years, she developed visible ripples and a “rock in a sock” appearance. She had surgical correction with removal of the old implants and placement of smooth 320cc implants under the muscle to hide ripples. A mastopexy (breast lift) was done to eliminate the sagging. Her post op pictures are shown at one year. There are no ripples, but you can see the white scars around the areolae.

Patient Case #2760

 This 30 year old woman had 375cc saline breast implants placed partly under the muscle. She had nipple height discrepancy noted preop. Five months after surgery, her left breast implant dropped down too far, and the left nipple looked even higher. She had a capsulorrhaphy on the left breast, lifting up the implant. Her revision post op photos are shown at 3 months. Saline implants are more prone to malposition down and outward due to the “water hammer” effect.”

Breast Implant Removal
Question: I have breast implants and want them removed. I do not want to replace them. What are my options?

Answer: Explantation, which is removal of breast implants, is becoming more common these days. Removing breast implants (as well as putting them in) is a major decision done for personal reasons. Some women want their breast implants out because their breasts have enlarged over the years. Some women are concerned about Breast Implant Illness. Others have had complications and feel the time and expense are not worth continuing with implants. If implants are removed, the breasts may look deflated or indented and saggy. Some women will accept this condition and others want a breast lift or fat transfer to improve the appearance.
