Breast Lift Candidate 4
I Do Have Implants…
Now My Breasts Are Sagging Or Are Uneven
Patient of Dr. Newman
There are many reasons why the breasts may look asymmetric (different than each other) after Breast Augmentation Surgery. These reasons include issues related to the surgery itself as well as longer term issues. When implants are placed under the muscle, a stronger muscle on the dominant side may affect the implant differently than on the non-dominant side.
Capsular contracture, a tightening of the normal scar tissue that forms around the implant can cause visible changes in one breast compared to the other. Implant rupture, as seen in the case pictured above on the patient’s right side is relatively rare, but can also be responsible for changes in shape. In these cases the breast on one side can look lower (saggier) than the other side. Treatment in these cases may involve revision of the implant surgery or can involve a Breast Lift procedure.
There are also times when a patient decides to reduce the size of their implant or remove them entirely. Breast Lift procedures may be used in these situations as well.
