Severe Bottoming Out with Implant Malposition and Traction Rippling due to oversized textured implants:

Age: 30 (no children)
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 115 lbs
Personal history: Periareolar Augmentation Mammaplasty with textured Mcghan style168, 700cc implants filled to 780cc's, submuscular placement in 1993.

Complications: Inferior displacement, drop-out of the inframammary creases, severe bottoming, and traction ripples due to poor soft tissue coverage and texturing of an oversized implant. Causes of deformity: Much Too large Implant, textured shell, thin female (little body fat)

Treatment: In March 2000 -- 7 years after initial surgery, patient underwent a restorative procedure which necessitated:

1. Bilateral periareolar removal of saline implants
2. Inferior capsulorraphy with multiple permanent sutures to correct severe bottoming out.
3. Overcorrection 30%
4. Replacement with style 45 high profile- McGhan 550cc smooth walled silicone-gel impants placed in partial retropectoral position
5. Elasto-foam taping of creases -2-weeks-

PHOTOS

Pre-op -- Note Severe Bottoming Out - Note the position of the right breast relative to the mole below it. -- note oversized saline implants with traction ripples

1 month post-- note the overcorrection with redundant stretched, loose skin in the creases. The wrinkled, stretched, and redundant skin in the inframammary crease region contracted nicely over 8-10 months.

1 year post---- note the nicely positioned implants and tighter folds with little to no redundant skin and absent ripples despite a 5 -7 lb wt. reduction.

Important point - the dilemma -- There is no need to remove the skin that has stretched ( and create unnecessary scarring ) - it will shrink nicely with time as long as the pressure of a heavy implant is reduced. this patient was instructed to remove the redundant skin by many physcians prior to consulting with me see attached
