Removal & Replacement of Implants Patient 8
This 52 year old requested removal and replacement of her existing breast implants, originally inserted by another plastic surgeon 20 years ago. Her right breast had gradually become firmer and uncomfortable over time. Dr. Parker removed the patient’s existing 210cc silicone implants and the overlying capsules around them. He replaced them with moderate plus silicone gel implants, 250cc on the right side and 275cc on the left to optimize symmetry. The patient enjoyed a quick recovery with very little pain. Her breasts are now soft and she is delighted with both the size and shape of her breasts.
