Replacing saline filled implants with gel implants into a new pocket

Procedure Details

This patient had her original breast augmentation in 1994 using saline filled implants. The implants were in the submuscular position. Over the years she developed a lateral migration of the implants due to capsular stretch. This is common with saline filled implants which are heavier than gel filled implants. Since the implants were submuscular over time they can tend to drift laterally. The saline implants were removed from the submuscular position and placed in the subfascial position using Sientra 385 cc moderate plus implants.
