Total Capsulectomy Beverly Hills, CA

Posted On: November 12, 2019 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Implants, Breast Revision, Breast topics, Ruptured Implant

Dr. Linder was presented a patient from out of town wanting to remove her silicone breast implants due to autoimmune issues. After listening to her concerns and examining the elasticity of her breasts, her and Dr. Linder agreed that she would benefit from having a breast lift along with removing the implants.

The video below shows that, after removing both implants (smooth silicone gel), the left implant was ruptured and both implants where completely covered in their capsules. During the surgery, Dr. Linder performed a total capsulectomy and breast lift. After, a drainage tube (7 mm Jackson Pratt drain) was placed to collect any excess fluid that accumulates beneath the skin. The incision around the tube was closed, and dressings were placed on the breast. The drainage tube should be removed within a week.
