45 year old woman with contracted and ruptured 12 year old implants. Markings for fat grafting and advancement of some loose peripheral tissue into the breast for added volume and to improved the shape.
After
Result one year after a single procedure consisting of removing the 320 cc implants and performing tissue advancement, fiber release and micro fat grafting. She now has all natural breasts with better shape and about the same size.

Before
39 year-old woman who had cosmetic breast augmentation with silicone implants 10 years prior to her presentation. Plastic surgeons insert implants either under the muscle or over the muscle. In her case, she had the right implant over the muscle that developed a deforming and painful capsular contracture and the left implant under the muscle that migrated inferiorly resulting in loss of the normal breast fold.
After 1 Year
We removed her implants and restored breast volume with microfat grafts meticulously placed in the tissue plane between the implant capsule and the skin. The capsule was treated with PALF and the breast fold was restored with a RAFT. She is shown 1-year post-grafting implant free with satisfactory breast shape and volume. Note that even in the skinniest of patients we can always harvest enough fat from the "love handles" and give the patient an improved waistline contour.

Before
Patient had implants that were hard and looking very unnatural.
After
1 year later when the implants were removed, they were 800 cc. They were replaced with 360 cc + 300 cc AFT Fat Recruitment using fat transferred from the patient. The fat added a volume of 150 cc, reduced the implant cavity, and repositioned the breast, and moved up RUQ scar.

You can see that when the implant were removed the patient had minimum volume in her breast.
After
When her breast implants were removed, her breast looked completely natural and were not hard. Notice the large difference between when the implants were removed and after

Patient has contracted ruptured implants removed (360 ml McGhan). Drawings show areas of planned liposuction (abdomen & flanks).
After
Follow up photo shows after removing the implants & one immediate session of lipografting 300 ml to the breasts. Some minor loss of volume, but more natural shape and benefit of liposuction.

44 year-old woman with recurrent implant contractures after a cosmetic augmentation with silicone implants. In addition to her augmentation, she had already undergone 6 open capsulectomies with removal and replacement of the implant in different pockets. She had consumed all modalities and presented with shriveled, contracted, deformed, and scarred breasts without implants.
After
She required 2 BRAVA + AFT procedures with Rigottomies to soften the scars, iron out the breast envelope, and restore a near-normal breast shape and contour. Photos show her 1 year after the last procedure. She no longer has implants.

Before
62 year-old woman 20 years after bilateral breast augmentation with silicone implants. She presented with implant rupture and the "rock in the sock" capsular contracture deformity.
After 9 Months
We removed the implants, resected and released as much as possible of the capsule scar, and filled the looseness left behind by the implant removal with her own liposuctioned fat. On follow up 9 months later she has a stable augmentation. The volume is slightly smaller but the shape is improved. Her waistline benefited from the liposuction.

36 year-old woman with recurrent capsular contracture around her silicone implants. After multiple failed correction attempts with implant replacements and placement of dermal substitutes, she decided to stay implant free. She presented with a deformity akin to an iatrogenic tuberous breast. She is an athlete with very little body fat.
After
To ensure maximal survival of the precious fat, we expanded her scarred, recipient breasts with BRAVA and then loosened the breast cicatrix (scars) with Rigottomies to create a matrix with tiny spaces for the microfat grafts. This procedure regenerated the missing lower pole of the breasts without any incision or implants.

Sixty-three-year-old woman with severely contracted silicone implants. Despite multiple attempts at correcting her deformity with implant replacements, capsulectomies, and fat grafting by her previous surgeons, she still has a severe deformity and poor, atrophied soft tissue covering the implants. Such a severe deformity required more than 1 stage. At the first stage, the capsulated implants were removed and replaced with smaller implants, and the laxity created by this implant downsizing made room for the first session of fat micrografting.
After
At the second stage, the small implants were removed and the resultant new laxity replaced with more microfat grafts. At each stage, Rigottomies were required to loosen the scar and create the recipient scaffold with room for the fat grafts. After photo is 3 months after the second stage. She is implant free with more natural breasts restored with her own body fat.

52 year-old woman who had silicone breast augmentation and a mastopexy 10 years prior to presentation. She has large implants with intracapsular rupture and grade 3 contracture. The vertical scar of the original left mastopexy incision has contracted and the tissues have thinned out to give her a bifid-like breast.
After
In 1 stage, we removed the implant and filled the resultant tissue laxity with fat graft from her "love handles." Photos taken 1 year later show the improved breast shape with little volume loss. Her waistline and buttocks also benefited from the liposuction.

26 year-old woman with capsular contracture from her recent breast augmentation with silicone implants. They felt very uncomfortable and she wanted them out. We removed the implants and replaced the resultant tissue laxity with her own liposuctioned fat.

At 1 year follow up she has more natural breasts augmented only with her own body fat and only slightly smaller than the original silicone augmentation. MRI shows healthy augmentation with her own body fat. Her overall body figure also benefited from the procedure.
