40 year old female who had severe capsular contracture causing deformity and asymmetry after an implant-based breast reconstruction for bilateral prophylactic mastectomies.  Her other surgeons told her nothing else could be done to improve her shape and symmetry.  I performed capsulectomies on both sides and replaced her round silicone gel implants with shaped anatomic ones.
