Symmastia repair

Initial BA was just over 2 yrs ago. Eurosilicone 310cc BWD 12. Right breast was always tight after surgery and after 12 mths developed mild capsular contraction. PS operated 18 months later. PS moved implants together lightly, sutured sides of breast to prevent side fall, cut muscles a little more. Not long after 2nd surgery, I developed Symmastia. Skin totally lifting of sternum, implants very mobile. PS operated a 3rd time, to repair Symmastia, this time removed implants and opted for Nagor 270cc BWD 11.2. I am now 4 mths post op and repair has not worked. So upset.

    Hi,Unfortunately this can be a difficult problem to fix and it sounds like you have had a very upsetting and stressful experience. I would suggest a shift in plane, internal repair but especially polyurethane implants plus a mirror capsulotomy possibly. Was a Synmastia bra worn?Stay safe and well,

    I’m very sorry to read about your challenges with breast augmentation and revision surgery. You need to arrange a comprehensive consultation for a full examination and discussion of your past surgical history and options for repair. Options may include internal pocket repair, change of implant placement and different style of implants. Only trust a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with extensive breast revision surgery.
