REVISION OF PREVIOUS BREAST SURGERY.  Very interesting case.  Synmastia etc.!!

This is a very attractive and shapely 41 year old lady who presented with 4 previous surgeries by several plastic surgeons. She was not happy with her breast condition in that her breasts were unequal and misshapen with the left breast crossing the midline (synmastia) and being completely different than her right breast.Interesting problem. Synmastia breast reconstruction patients present difficult issues and this surgery should only be approached by a reconstructive surgeon who has seen this many times. The problem is that anything less than a formalized plan will leave the patient in either the same condition or actually worse. So, here is the approach to patients in these categories on the first consultation. At first I essentially make recommendations based upon what the patient is saying and what I have to add. Sometimes the patient does not see issues that will become important in either the OR setting or in the post op time frame. It is important to fast forward with the patient with the discussions. For example, if a patient is seeing a nipple issue, then taking care of that only will then bring on the next issue of a mismatch that might not have been included in the planning of the case.For this patient specifically, she has a left nipple pointing outward and it also has a higher crease under the breast. Remember, the patient might not recognize this but it has to come into the discussion for the best result. The patient also has a significant synmastia in which the left breast crosses the cleavage line such that when the patient looks down, the mismatch is very visual. She also has a right breast that is somewhat high and can use some improvements.In order to take care of the synmastia, the scar around the imlant must be removed and contoured. The muscle can also be of help to define this area. The implant must be taken out on the left and the capsule laterally modified such that the nipple becomes more well placed on the breast. She is too FULL in the midline on the left because the implant is doing all of the power pushing because there is no resistance anymore to the implant coming to the midline.Both breasts modified and she is seen approximately 4-6 weeks post op. You can imagine the confidence that this lady has now with breasts that are better matched and now her nightmare of many breast surgeries is over. Shopping is now fun and life is good.Breast reconstruction comes in many presentations. This is one that is very difficult but to someone who does a great deal of breast surgery, this can be quite challenging. Not for the faint hearted breast surgeon !! Yes, CONFIDENCE IS BEAUTIFUL.
