Breast Symmetry Before and After Pictures by Bivik Shah, MD

This 30 year old woman had a breast augmentation in earlier years. She started noticing that her breasts did not match one another. She came to The Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery to have Dr. Bivik Shah take a look. He described to her that sometime the capsule in which the breast implant sits, does not adjust to the implant and will not allow the implant to sit right because it forms a tight hammock-like structure around the implant. Together they decided to go in and remove this capsule (capulectomy) so that her implant could fall in place like it should. The after photo was taken 2 months after surgery.
