This woman was unhappy and tired of having large breast implants. She was dissatisfied with their position, size and over all body contribution. She wanted them removed and no breast lift. She did not want a breast implant exchange for smaller breast implants. She wanted breast implant removal and her tissues did not require a breast lift or any corrective surgery.
Breast implant removal with replacement implants and lift
This 46-year-old woman wanted to enhance her droopy breasts. In addition, she wanted to replace the breast implants that were 20 years old. She decided to consult a Los Angeles plastic surgeon .
At 5 feet tall, she weighed 100 pounds and wore a size 34C. During her consultation at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, she and her surgeon agreed on the benefits of replacing her breast implants with the newer, cohesive gel implants. During the procedure, her surgeon performed a bilateral open capsulectomy and capsulotomy to remove the old implants and replace them with new ones. She also had a bilateral breast lift (mastopexy) with the laser bra.
After recovering, this woman said she is happier with her perkier and fuller breasts. She now wears a size 34D bra and feels more confident and sexier after her Los Angeles breast augmentation and lift.
