Secondary Implant Correction

Age: 47

47 year old 9 years after saline implant placement in the subpectoral position. Implant migration has occurred; they sit way too low. Lower crease fixation was needed to close the excess pocket space. Gel implants have better upper pole fullness.

Another common problem with saline implants is “bottoming out”, or migration of the implants out into the axillary region or down towards the belly button. This can result in upper pole flatness, a poor implant position with a central gap between the implants, rippling, and sometimes the areola peeking out of the swimsuit.
