This 54 year-old woman had subglandular breast augmentation about 9 years prior to seeing me. Her right side was extremely hard, higher in position, and made her self-conscious when hugging friends or family. She underwent a capsulectomy, exchange of implants and placement in a submuscular pocket. Teh implants were smooth , round, 265 cc silicone, moderate profile. She is soft with symmetry. She is 3 months postop.
