This patient presents with severe disfigurement, left superior retroposition of her implant, with scar tissue contracture with painful breast deformity left breast. Patient has had multiple surgeries by multiple surgeons without relief of her problem. Note, the left implant is elevated superiorly. There is complete loss of the lower portion of her breast. She has inadequate release of the parasternal attachments of the pectoralis major muscle as well as release of the fascia from her previous two surgeries. In order to reconstruct and repair this, she had a total capsulectomy, lateral capsulotomy and resection of the parasternal attachments of the pectoralis major muscle with inferior radial release of the lower pole of her breast pocket with replacement of her 100 cc Mentor moderate plus silicone gel implant and a superior areolar lift.

On Postop Day 1, note that the implant is now in the correct position. She will wear a Dr. Linder Bra, extra small, for the next weeks and an upper pole compression band in order to maintain the inferior positioning of her breast implant.
