This 33 year old patient came to Dr. Francesco Campanile because, she was unhappy with a breast augmentation surgery previously performed by a different doctor. The initial surgery had been done approximately 10 years before and her saline implants had been placed under the muscle. As you can see, these saline implants placed over the muscle give the breast an unnatural and hard water balloon-like quality. Saline implants tend to feel harder compared to silicone implants and when placed over the muscle they look much less natural. Additionally, the pockets initially created to place her implants in were too large, so when this patient laid down her implants slid into her armpits. The large pockets also created the asymmetry between her breasts.
Dr. Campanile took the time to review this case and evaluate the information and recommended a capsulotomy and breast implant exchange. During surgery, Dr. Campanile removed the saline implants and closed off part of the lateral pocket to decrease its size before inserting silicone implants. This suturing of the pockets prevented the implants from moving and also kept the breasts closer to the midline of the body. This patient wanted the biggest silicone implants her body could handle because, she wanted a significant amount of cleavage.
This patient is shown here approximately 1 month after breast augmentation revision surgery. She is very happy with her results and now feels confident with the how her breasts look.
