Rippling and Capsular Contracture, Revision Breast Surgery

breast revision surgeryThe female patient presented to the left was requesting to have a breast revision surgery due to her breast being asymmetry . During the examination, the breast had asymmetry due to the right breast having scar tissue (capsular contracture) and the left breast experiencing a rippling effect. Capsular contracture is scar tissue that forms around the breast implant which causes the breast to harden and the rippling was due to the amount of soft tissue covering the implant.  After listening to her goals, and agreeing on the expectation, we scheduled a surgery date.

During the surgery we used 445 cc SRX extra full profile silicone (gel) implants. This implant has a smooth shell surface and provides the patient with the fullest, roundest look. Using the silicone gel will also help reduce most of the visible rippling.

The post-op photo to the right is at 7-weeks and as you can see her breast are symmetric and she is very pleased with her shape and fullness.

Plastic Surgery Is A Choice After Breast Cancer

Going through breast cancer and losing a portion or all of your breasts can be traumatic. A decision to undergo plastic surgery can be hard not only physically but also emotionally. As a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, I am thankful for my training, so I can help women who have battled breast cancer regain their self-esteem.

Education is very important during this journey. The better informed a woman is, the more comfortable and confident she will be with her decision. Most of my patients who are in this situation need time to process the information before making a decision. During my consultation and examination, I take time with my patients to help guide them through the available options and discuss the risks and benefits.

For more information on the actual approach for breast reconstruction, please visit breast revision after breast cancer and reconstruction. See also the video below of Dr. Linder explaining his pre-op marking for a breast reconstruction cancer revision surgery.

Male Breast Reduction Procedure

gynecomastiaI was presented a 23 year-old male who was self-conscious about the size of his breasts. During the consultation and examination we discussed how to remove the excessive glandular breast tissue and fat by performing gynecomastia surgery. The procedure was performed under general anesthesia supervised by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

The photo to the right shows three weeks post-op, and as you can see the enlarged breast has been reduced and are well balanced. The patient is extremely happy with his appearance and will continue to follow my postoperative instruction for a few more weeks (light actives can be resumed – no heavy lifting).

Grade 3 Ptosis, Breast Augmentation Enhancement

Grade 3 ptosis breast augmentation

Pre-Op & 4 Weeks Post-Op

I evaluated a female patient who expressed that she wanted to lift the shape of the breast as well as increase the volume. During her examination, we discussed her slight tubular deformity and grade 3 ptosis. Grade 3 ptosis is where the nipples lie below the inframammary fold and point downward (see the pre-op photo to the left). After setting her expectation, we scheduled her breast augmentation. During her surgery, we placed 350 cc high-profile saline breast implants under the pectoral muscle.

The post-op photo to the far right is 4 weeks out, and she is extremely happy with the shape and fullness of her breasts.
