Breast Revision Transition, Low to High Profile

Posted On: October 07, 2013 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Lift, Breast Revision

The patient below presents with a significant amount of skin laxity with her low profile implants which she desires to have replaced for upper pole fullness and narrowing of the lateral breast.  The patient presents with breast dysphoria due to the flattening appearance of her low profile saline implants placed by a different surgeon through the inframammary approach.  Patient will do well with removal and replacement with direct high profile smooth saline implants which were actually slightly narrower in her chest, but gave her significantly more upper pole fullness as well as lift without any excessive scarring.  The patient on postoperative Day 14 is shown.  There is decreased skin laxity, fullness is excellent and the patient is shown in a Dr. Linder white bra.  The upper pole fullness is greatly enhanced and the patient has less lateral fullness and disturbance with fullness of the breast and the breast upper arm inner section.

High profile saline are an excellent alternative for patients who desire upper pole fullness that have had lower profile bags desiring both increased projection and less lateral display or fullness.
