This 24 year old from was extremely displeased with her breast augmentation results performed by a previous surgeon. The doctor recommended internal sutures, also known as Capsulorrhaphy, to correct the patient's implant displacement. She wanted to improve medial cleavage and wanted her breasts fuller and rounder. The doctor used internal sutures to close off the bottom of the breast pocket to prevent the implant from falling below the breast pocket and then closed off the side of the breast pocket to allow the implant to settle in the middle of the breast pocket. 475cc silicone gel implants were used and placed below the muscle. The patient is now 3 years 3 months post-op.
