Corrective Breast Surgery
This is the story of a 78-year-old female who was interested in a breast revision. She had silicone implants for over 40 years that became hard and painful due to a “silent leak.” As a result, she developed significant capsular contractures. She had the silicone implants removed, but due to the extensive and complex procedure to remove the ruptured silicone, new implants were not placed at that time. The patient sought to find a surgeon closer to home to complete her reconstruction. After reading the reviews of Dr. Mahony, she made an appointment for a consultation.
During the consultation, she discussed with Dr. Mahony that her goals were to replenish the volume of her chest and requested that the implants have a soft feel. She also wanted to go with a safer route than silicone, due to her traumatic experience with silicone. Dr. Mahony discussed all the options for implants, but the patient was attracted to the look, feel, and safety profile of the IDEAL implant. The IDEAL implant is a structured saline implant, that feels natural, and has a lower capsular contracture rate than silicone.
These photos were taken 3 short months after the surgery. She has returned to Florida, happy with the natural look and feel of her Ideal Implants! The implants are 225cc and raised her from a size 34A to a 36B.
