INFECTED BREAST IMPLANTS – COSTA RICA

This patient presents with breast implants placed in Costa Rica in which she pusses out and ended up with severe abscesses. Implants were removed in Costa Rica three months later. She is now seen one year later, traveling to Beverly Hills for reconstruction.

On a close-up view of the bottom vertical scar of the bilateral breast, right greater than left, you can see the thinness and laxity of the skin which is quite thinned out poor vascularity, continuous. Postoperatively, the patient underwent augmentation mammoplasty procedure using 465 high profile style 68 Natrelle saline implants through a lateral periareolar incision under the nipple. Her postoperative view shows excellent fullness, scar healing nicely under the nipple, shape is excellent and the breasts now remain soft with no evidence of recurrent scar tissue and there is nice shaping of the lower poles of the breast compared to her preoperative photos.

Patients travel internationally to have breast reconstruction here with Dr. Linder in Beverly Hills in order to often repair problems, including infections of previous breast augmentation surgery.
