Symmastia - Corrective Breast Reconstruction

Left image: Symmastia developed after a bilateral mastectomy and silicone implant reconstruction.
Right image: Corrective surgery involved removal of both implants and reconstructing the breasts using the SGAP flap procedure.


Capsular Contracture 1 - Corrective Breast Reconstruction

Left image: Capsular contracture developed in the right breast and the left implant moved into a position that was too low on the chest after a bilateral mastectomy and silicone implant reconstruction.
Right image: The capsular contracture on the right breast was corrected by removing the implant and reconstructing the breast with "stacked" DIEP flap surgery. The displacement of the left implant was corrected by removing the implant, inserting a new implant, and making adjustments to the pocket of tissue that holds the implant in place.


Capsular Contracture 2 - Corrective Breast Reconstruction

Left image: Capsular contracture developed in the left breast and chronic discomfort developed in both breasts after a bilateral mastectomy and implant reconstruction.
Right image: Corrective surgery involved removing both implants and the capsule of scar tissue surrounding each implant and reconstructing the breasts using the DIEP flap procedure.


Capsular Contracture 3 - Corrective Breast Reconstruction

Left image: Capsular contracture developed in the right breast after a mastectomy and implant reconstruction.
Right image: Corrective surgery involved removing the implant and the capsule of scar tissue surrounding the implant and reconstructing the breast using the “stacked" DIEP flap procedure.
