This 55 year-old woman had severe encapsulation of silicone gel implants that were placed above the muscle. They were very painful, very far apart and extremely hard. She wanted them removed. At surgery she had extremely thick capsules with calcium deposits . The implants were ruptured. After removal the skin envelope was very large, so intraoperative tailoring was done to remove skin and give the most natural appearing breast. Post-op three months later.
