This lady has previously had a mastopexy implant procedure and wished to remove her implants. It is always difficult to predict how the breasts will appear after removal especially when a mastopexy or breast lift has previously been performed. It is important to consider the pros and cons of removal only and the pros and cons of removal and replacement. This lady has also considered a further breast lift breast lift and the use of autologous fat transfer. Her prime aim was to remove the implants and during surgery the capsules were very thin. Thus, only a partial capsulectomy was performed and the tissue sent for pathological analysis. Everything has settled well after 6 weeks and she is very happy with the result. It may be in time that she considers further volumisation but often patients are surprised at the volume that they are left with. Often they have become used to the volume and cannot remember life without implants.
At a consultation, it is important to run through all the pros and cons and the various options of breast so that you can be empowered to proceed. In particular, one must consider whether to remove all of the capsule or part of the capsule. Mr. Ross will show you various preoperative and postoperative results so that you can understand what can be achieved and what is to be expected.
