Correction of Symmastia and Removal and Replacement of Breast Implants

Procedure Details

This 23 year-old Manhattan Beach woman had had a previous breast augmentation and a revision four years ago. The implant on the left side had shifted medially and she nearly had a symmastia. In the postoperative pictures she is three months after removal of bilateral breast implants and capsulorrhaphies (internal sutures/lifts). Her implants were also downsized to smaller ones that are more proportionate to her body habitus. On the right side, a Mentor moderate profile 400 cc implant was replaced with an Allergan smooth round mid-range profile style 15 implant, 371 cc. On the left side, a 450 cc Mentor moderate profile implant was replaced with an Allergan mid-range profile style 15 smooth round implant, 421 cc. The patient had had medial displacement of the implants due to a pre-existing pectus excavatum, which is when the center of the chest dents inward. In this common chest wall variation, the surgeon needs to take precaution, making sure that the implants are not placed too far medially.
