Inferior, Lateral Malposition, Wants Larger
Both implants are too small and narrow, and the left is very low and outside. Larger implants placed in the proper space gave closed the gap between her breasts and made it much more attractive.
Inferior Malposition (R), Superior Malposition (L), Wants smaller
Note that in the preop the right nipple looks high and the left looks low. That is because a high implant pushes it down and a low implant tips it up. By equalizing the position, this is solved. She wanted to be natural without the R upper bulge.
Inferior Malposition (L), Rippling
The left implant is lower than the right and the pocket was closed off. Her implants are still too wide for her, which is why they are so close together. Rippling is visible on the sideways photo, and this was helped by changing from saline to silicone.
Inferior Malposition, Wants Smaller
Her implants were positioned too down and in. They were also too big and fake for her very lean body. The implants were better centered under her nipples and smaller, less highly projecting implants were placed.
Inferior Malposition, Capsular Contracture
Her implants were too low and were contracted. The scar tissue was removed, the implants raised, and new smaller implants were placed behind the muscle.
Medial/Inferior Malposition - Symmastia
Concave breast bone and large implants caused symmastia. Strattice was used to reduce and strengthen new pockets, and smaller implants were placed. The left implant was also too low.
As her implants slid down, the nipple appears to rise up and the distance from the nipple to the bottom lengthened. She was repaired with a "neosubpectoral pocket", a new technique Dr. Teitelbaum has publsihed and lectured about.
Inferior Malposition - "Double Bubble"
Her implants slid downards, beneath her breasts. The lowest bulge is the implant, and the upper bulge is her breast sitting on the implant. The lower pocket was precisely closed off, pushing the implants back up to the proper position.
Inferior Malposition, Larger implants
Whether due to surgeon error or weak tissues, her implants slid downwards. She also wanted to be larger. The lower pocket was closed off and new implants placed. Note the improved nipple orientation just from the implants being in the right place.
Inferior Malposition, Wants Larger
Her saline implants were low, which left her with very little fill of the upper breast. she also wanted them to be a bit fuller and larger. She wanted the smooth upper pole of the 410 breast implant.
