Case: This is a 35 year old woman presented with a complaint of possible saline breast implant auto deflation and resulting asymmetry. She has a history of previous implant placement surgery 20+ years ago. The exact size was unavailable from the patient. After a thorough evaluation and physical examination, I concurred with her complain that she in fact has suffered from auto deflation of the left breast implant. The surgical advice was to bilaterally remove and replace the implants. At the patient’s request, saline implants were chosen and replaced with a larger size implant.
Surgery: The previously placed ruptured saline implants were removed and replaced with high profile saline implants with a fill volume of 500 cc.
