breast reconstruction and revision

Case 1: The patient had symptomatic capsular contracture of the right breast that was previously reconstructed after mastectomy with an implant about 20 years prior. She underwent removal and replacement of her right breast implant, as well as a complete capsulotomy (removal of scar tissue) and a concurrent matching left breast lift.

Case 2: The patient underwent staged nipple-sparing breast reconstruction surgery with an expander replaced by an implant, and a modest breast augmentation on the other side to naturally match the reconstruction.

Case 3: The patient underwent oncoplastic breast reconstruction at the time of a left breast lumpectomy for cancer and a sentinel lymph node biopsy on the left side, as well as a matching breast lift/reduction on the right side.

Case 4: The patient underwent oncoplastic breast reconstruction at the time of a right breast lumpectomy for cancer, with a matching breast lift/reduction on the left side. Her chemotherapy port is still present on the left chest.

Case 5: The patient had previous bilateral breast reconstruction with implants after mastectomies with some asymmetry. The implants were replaced and internal pocket revision work was performed to help with symmetry and to improve the appearance of dog ears or skin puckering.

Case 6: The patient underwent oncoplastic breast reconstruction at the time of a left breast lumpectomy for cancer, with a matching breast reduction on the left side. She is shown early postoperatively when bruising is still present.
