En Block and Mastopexy Implant Removal
This 43-year-old woman had breast implants for 14 years, and over the last 5 years she experienced pain and significant hardening. She had an MRI scan that revealed a ruptured left implant. Her implants were round, silicone with a volume of 250 cc on each side. She came in to consult with Dr. Leonard regarding removal of the implants and he recommended en bloc removal since she had decided not to have them replaced. She was also interested in a breast lift after the removal. 8 months after surgery, she told Dr. Leonard that she is very happy with her results and breast volume.
