This 60 year old patient has been considering revisionary surgery for years. Her online research led her to a plastic surgeon she was interested in. She decided to schedule a consult with him and he believed capsulorrhaphy would also greatly benefit this patient. Capsulorrhaphy is also known as pocket correction or use of internal sutures/bra, involves closing a portion of the breast pocket to correct displacement of the implant. This can also be necessary when breast implants fall toward the axilla (armpits) and therefore the pockets need to be internally sutured to keep the breast implant in the correct position on the chest wall. She is currently 1 year and 11 months post revisionary breast surgery.
