Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Breast Augmentation & Implant Replacement
This patient had undergone breast augmentation elsewhere, some 20 years ago. She had her original saline implants, and came to us with concerns about pain in her breasts, and the changes in their appearance.
Dr. Lepore determined that she had severe capsular contractures (a build-up of scar tissue around the implants), which had pushed the implants out of position, and were causing her pain.
She decided to undergo a capsulectomy (removal of the scar tissue and capsule), as well as removal and replacement of her older implants.
She is very pleased with the restored appearance of her breasts.
