Patient underwent a bilateral breast augmentation Poly Implant Prothèse (PIP) implants. PIP was a French company that was shut down in 2010 because they had been illegally manufacturing and selling breast implants made from cheaper industrial-grade silicone.

She presented to me with a ruptured left implant and severe capsular contracture.

She underwent bilateral total capsulectomies, placement of new implants (Inspira 320cc) and bilateral mastopexies.
