Removal & Replacement of Implants Patient 16
This 48 year old patient underwent breast augmentation 10 years ago with 210 cc saline breast implants. She felt that over time her implants had gotten smaller. She wanted to switch to silicone and to increase the implant size. Using the patient’s healed peri areolar incisions, Dr. Parker removed the existing submuscular saline implants and found they had deflated to 155 cc on the right side and 170 cc on the left. He replaced them with 275 cc silicone implants. The patient had a speedy and uneventful recovery.
