Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
This young woman had had a Breast Augmentation some time ago. She experienced one of the most common complications resulting from this type of surgery, a condition known as Capsular Contracture, or contracting of the implants due to the formation of internal scar tissue.
All patients differ when it comes to scar formation. In this case, you can see that the implants had been 'pushed' to a position not considered optimal for a natural appearance.
She came to Dr. Lepore to have the scar tissue removed, in an operation known as a capsulotomy or capsulectomy. Once that was done, the existing implants were removed, and replaced with silicone gel implants, of the patient's choosing.
To complete her transformation, she also chose to have a breast lift, or bilateral Donut Mastopexy.
She is very pleased with the outcome, and feels the appearance of her breasts has been greatly improved.
