Old ruptured implants removed with en bloc capsulectomy
Get In Touch
This 68 year old woman had implants placed over 30 years ago. She had developed capsular contracture over the years but never sought help. She was concerned that her implants were ruptured. She had very obvious contractures of both implants. She was concerned that her implant s were causing "breast implant illness". Dr. Lyle performed an en bloc capsulectomy. The ruptured gel implants were contained within the capsule. No abnormal pathology was noted and no organisms were cultured. The patient did not want implant replacement or lift . Post operatively, she felt much more comfortable and was happy with her "normal" appearing breasts.
