The patient presents with severe Baker IV capsular contracture, painful breast deformity with bilateral breast implants presented over 15 years ago by a different surgeon.  She also has multiple abdominal wall hernias both epigastric and umbilical and incisional status post midline laparotomy for 11 ulcerations in her gastric region.  The patient underwent bilateral open periprosthetic capsulectomy, removal and replacement with 500 to 550 cc smooth saline implants, abdominoplasty with epigastric umbilical hernia repair and tightening of the lower abdominal rectus fascia.  The patient’s postoperative results show excellent tightening of the lower abdominal muscle with revision of the lower abdominal scar.  The hernia is both incisional epigastric and umbilical had been repaired.  She has increased projection with her breasts with softening and decrease in scar tissue contracture.  Notice the softness of the hips, the resolution of skin laxity both upper and lower abdomen and the pink scar that will take well over one year to heal.  Patients often undergo multiple cosmetic and functional surgeries concurrently.  This is an example in which both the breasts and the abdomen were functionally reconstructed for severe encapsulation and Baker IV capsules as well as multiple hernias.  She has a beautiful postoperative result with soft breasts and hernias repaired with a nice smoothing of the stomach from the abdominoplasty.
