Patient Spotlight: Revision Breast Augmentation and Lift

This young woman had had a previous breast augmentation and lift by another surgeon several years ago and over time had developed a hard capsule formation (capsular contracture) as well as drooping of the breast (called ptosis).  I performed a revision breast augmentation where I removed her old implant and capsule and placed a new cohesive gel implant into the pocket, and then did a new breast lift with incisions around the nipple, down the breast and in the fold.  This has created a more youthful, perkier appearance to her breasts, as seen in the postop photos taken several weeks after her procedure.
