This a 49 year old woman had undergone breast augmentation with silicone implants 18 years prior to coming in for a consultation to discuss revision options. It was clear she had developed bilateral capsular contractures and after exploring her options, she decided to have me perform a capsulectomy and to remove, rather than replace, her implants. Her results are seen here 9 months after her procedure.
