This 60 year old woman came to consultation with old painful silicone gel implants. She desired removal of the implants and had that along with capsulectomy (removal of the scar capsules.) This softened the breasts considerably eliminating the pain (in her case.) She was happy with her breasts after this surgery not desiring breast lifting, reduction or implant replacement.
