When is skin excision necessary during a capsuloraphy for bottoming out?

Capsulorrhaphy with skin excision
If, however, on exam you have excess length of the lower pole of your breast, then in some cases skin excision along with revision of the capsule may be beneficial. This usually can be determined after breast measurements are made, and discussion with you regarding your ideal of an esthetically pleasing relationship between the position of the nipple on the breast mound, and the amount of fullness of the lower portion of the breast.
Best of wishes to you as you explore these options.

Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you. It is important to remember that a board certified plastic surgeon will be your best resource when it comes to an accurate assessment of your situation, and concerns.
Having said that, I do not excise skin unless there is already a scar there. If there is not a scar, I will typically do all of the work from the inside.
I hope you found this helpful. As always, ask your PS first about any questions. Have a great day.

However you could have some unusal situation. Only examining doctor is justified in giving concrete recommendation in your regard.
Skin Excision Never Necessary
Capsulorrhapy should be sufficient. The 'extra skin' just goes back down to your chest wall once the implant has been taken out of the way and replaced to it's proper position.
Best of luck!

Bottoming out with skin excision?
Sorry to hear of your problems.
To me your problem sounds like they resulted from the pocket dissection, or perhaps, a weakness that developed subsequently. A capsule repair should take care of this.
Now, if a surgeon is saying that you need skin excision, it sounds to me like you either need a lift or a larger implant regardless of the capsules. This is an issue that should have been reviewed pre op.
I recommend a third consultation, and an explanation.
