Pocket Too Big?
Breast implant pocket too big?
Generally, the lateral breast implant (and/or bottoming out) displacement can be corrected using an internal suture technique, decreasing the size of the pockets and moving the implants toward the midline. In my practice, I use a 2 layered suture technique to close off the space laterally (towards the axilla). The use of acellular dermal matrix is an option (although not usually necessary) especially if significant implant rippling/palpability is present. I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to revisionary breast surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
