Capsular Contracture (Left), Lateral Malposition (R)
The right implant is low and outside. Strattice was used to strenghten the weak tissues in that area and move the implant inwards. The left had recurrent contractures, and Strattice was used to reduce the chance it would happen again.
Capsular Contracture, Drooping, Wants Larger Implants
The scar tissue made her implants high, hard, and round. Scar tissue was removed and Strattice used to reduce chances of contracture. Larger implants were placed. Her tissue is droopy, but she did not want a lift.
Her implants were supposed to have been behind the muscle, but the muscle was so damaged that there was none left to put the implant behind. Strattice was used to add coverage and keep what little muscle there was over the implants.
Capsular Contracture, Nipple Distortion
She has had multiple occurences of capsular contracture, so Strattice was used to prevent it from recurring. It was also used to fix the defect on her areola. This is a very disfiguring complication of that incision.
Replacement after Removal
This patient had capsular contracture so many times she decided to have her implants removed. But she wanted them back. So they were replaced with Strattice, which evidence shows can reduce the chance of it recurring. She has stayed soft ever since.
Rippling is always worst when someone bends over. Note from her breastbone how thin she is (rippling is a problem of thinner patients.) Thickening the area with Strattice cured her rippling problem.
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.
This patient had such large implants they thinned her tissue. And her muscle was damaged, so she lost coverage over the implants. Note the implant fold at 7 O'Clock on the right breast. Strattice was used to thicken the tissue and pull the muscle down.
Capsular Contracture, Strattice
Her left breast was always soft and pretty, but the right kept getting hard after multiple surgeries. The scar tissue was removed and Strattice was placed. The breast has remained soft.
Symmastia, Wants Smaller
It is obvious that her implants were simply too wide for her chest. They could not go anywhere but touch in the center. The central pocket was closed, reinforced with Strattice, and smaller implants were placed.
