Patient - Breast Augmentation
Click on an image below to see a larger version.
35 year old patient experienced loss of volume in her breasts after her pregnancies and was a 34 B cup bra. 6 months after augmentation with McGhan anatomically shaped, texture saline implants in pockets above the muscle. She has experienced contraction of the implant pocket, called capsular contracture. This causes the breasts to feel very firm and alters the shape of the breasts. In her case, the breasts area much too round and the implants have shifted apart producing too wide a space between the breasts. This required surgery to correct. Capsular contracture requiring surgical correction occurs in less than 5% of breast augmentations.
The picture below is 3 months after revision. Her old implants were removed, the contracted capsule was released and new implants inserted. These are Mentor round, smooth saline 380 cc implants. The difference in the appearance of her breasts is obvious and they are very soft.
