This lady had very thick capsules and had felt unwell for some time as a result of the breast implants. She was very anxious and was unable to stop smoking for the procedure. An en bloc removal of the implants along with the capsules was performed. It is difficult for patients to be able to decide on whether to have an en bloc removal or not. Mr Ross’s advises all patients with rupture / leak or in the case of very thick capsules / seromas or abnormalities in the capsule to undergo en bloc removal. Mr Ross always sends all the capsule for analysis. The results are shown at 6 weeks postop and there still is some swelling and irregularities. Although this lady was very anxious she is very happy with the results and is now less anxious about the affect the breast implants are having on her.
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.
