Breast Implant Removal, Followed By Augmentation
This patient came to me about 16 months ago with a ruptured silicone breast implant. At that time we performed an explantation with an inframammary incision made and implants where explanted and removed. During the surgery we addressed the scar tissue and the infected seroma. The pocket was irrigated with antibiotic irritant solution and 7 mm JP drain was placed throughout the inframammary incision. Drains where removed the next week and the patient was instructed to maintain wearing a compressive bra for the next 6 months in order to allow tightening.
The patient scheduled a consultation a few weeks ago where she expressed her desirer to have an breast augmentation. After discussing her expectation we decided to place SRX 400 cc gel breast implants and also perform a breast lift. After 12 weeks, the post-op photo shows a natural and symmetrical look, and most importantly she is happy.
