"I am 49, had original Breast Augmentation (silicone) in 2006 after losing 100lbs+ I was fairly happy with results, however, my right breast never completely dropped. I believe my right implant is now shifting out of place?? originally placed sub-muscle, saline 500 CC’s – I’m positive I want to replace both implants, is a lift and Strattice advised?? What’s the cost? Best Surgeon in my area? Bellevue/Seattle."
DR. POUSTI: Do you recommend a Breast Augmentation Revision that includes Breast Lift and Strattice?
Thank you for the question and pictures. Based on your photographs, I do not think that breast lifting is indicated. It is probable that adjustment of the breast implant capsules along with selection of appropriate breast implant size/profile will improve your outcome. The use of a dermal matrix may be helpful if you have encapsulation present or wish to improve any contour irregularities present.
Although I cannot provide you with specific names, I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery and can demonstrate lots of experience helping patients with revisionary breast surgery.
***Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.
