This patient is a 41 year old female who was interested in revision breast surgery. For this patient, I performed multiple maneuvers to improve her breast appearance. First, I changed her implants from saline to silicone cohesive gel for a softer, more natural look and feel. Secondly, I switched from over to under the chest muscles for a more blended look to the upper chest and more tissue coverage. Next, I used Strattice (an acellular dermal matrix) to act as an internal bra and bridge the gap from her chest muscle to the crease under her breast. The Strattice helps to provide soft tissue coverage and maintain the newly lifted chest muscle in good position. Finally, I performed a vertical (lollipop scar) breast lift to reshape the breasts and improve the nipple positions.
