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.

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.
36 year old woman with a previous breast augmentation years prior. Her implants had fallen down and out. Previous implants were 250cc moderate profile + silicone implants. The breast revision consisted of internal pocket repair and new silicone gel implants - 300cc MP+. Results shown are at 6 months. She did require a tightening procedure in the office of the left breast at 6 months.
