This is a 58 year old woman, 5’5″ and 118 pounds who presented to me with complaints of contracted implants. She had them placed thirty years ago. She told me they became contracted about six years ago.
On exam, she had near rock hard implants. The breast shape was distorted, and her breasts were somewhat cool and painful to the touch. Her implants were above the muscle and they were the silicone variety.
She is seen here after I removed her ruptured silicone implants in the space above the breast and I placed new moderate profile smooth silicone implants that were 350cc in size below the muscle. At the time of these photos, she lost twenty pounds from an illness. Her breasts are soft and natural in both feel and appearance. I removed the capsule at the time of her procedure (her capsule is the normal scar tissue that forms around all implants). I moved her implants beneath the muscle because I feel they are less likely to contract in this position.
