This 54 year-old woman had saline breast augmentation 15 years prior. The saline implants ruptured and were replaced with new saline breast implants 6 years later. They ruptured again and she is hown here prior to her breast implant revision surgery. Her implants were below the muscle and she said the she also had the muscle contraction deformity of her breast implants that she did not like when she was at the gym. She chose to have new gummy bear breast implants placed above the muscle for her breast implant revision. This way she hoped to avoid the animation of her breasts as well another saline leak that she would have to have another operation for.
