51 yo female with a previous submuscular breast augmentation 15 years prior. She had MRI confirmation of a right implant rupture, bilateral breast ptosis (sagginess), and asymmetry. Her goals were to replace the implants for something rounder and fuller, lift both breasts, and improve the symmetry. The previous implants and scar capsules were removed, new 650cc HPX Mentor silicone gel implants were placed, and mastopexies (breast lifts) were performed.

68 yo female with previous breast augmentation and revision. She developed a disfiguring capsular contracture of the left breast implant and a minor contracture of the right implant. Neither implant was ruptured. Breast augmentation revision performed by removing all the capsule scar tissue and reaugmentating with 240cc MPX implants. Significantly improved breast appearance and feel.
44 y/o patient with previous breast implants and a lift over 10 years before. She felt that the implants did not project enough and the nipples were too low. Old implants were 400cc MP+ and 350cc MP+ (flatter) implants. New implants 335cc HPX (High Profile Xtra) with much more projection. The breast lift (mastopexy) required a lollipop incision to help narrow the breasts and improve nipple position.
68 yo female with bilateral breast silicone implant ruptures. The preoperative photos demonstrate no evidence of rupture. The ruptures were discovered on imaging studies of the breasts. Most ruptures are "silent" and do not show as a deformity of the breast. Replacement of the implants (Mentor 300cc MP+ silicone gel) performed with no signficant change in appearance, but certainly an improvement in patient concern and anxiety.
59 yo female with a history of breast cancer and implant reconstruction following mastectomies. Left breast implant with a capsular contracture. Revision surgery to remove the tight capsule and replace with acellular dermal matrix and a new implant.
38 yo female with a history of 300cc low profile implants. She felt her previous implants did not provide a natural upper breast pole. Also, her breasts had dropped after pregnancy. New high profile 350cc silicone gel implants with a short scar anchor lift.
70 year old female with oversized 400cc silicone gel implants with rupture. These implants were replaced with 125cc MP+ silicone gel implants in the same pocket on top of the muscle combined with a breast lift. The upper pole change is quite dramatic on the profile pictures.
38 year old with 475cc saline implants and wide areolas. Implants were downsized to 400cc HP smooth round silicone gel implants with an areolar reduction.
60 year old female with ruptured silicone gel implants. Bilateral total capsulectomies and implant removals.
26 year old female with oversized 375cc implants and large breasts. The breast tissue appears to fall off the implants. Goals of surgery were to decrease the implant size and lift the breasts to create a more proportionate bust. Implants placed are 175cc MP+ saline implants filled 200cc and a small reduction/breast lift.
