PSC Case Files – Breast Augmentation Revision


In this PSC Case Files, board certified plastic surgeons Dr. William P. Adams Jr. of Dallas, Texas and Dr. Craig Colville of Toledo, Ohio discuss a patient of Dr. Colville’s who came in looking to revise her prior breast surgeries due to unwanted aesthetic complications. 6 years before consulting with Dr. Colville, his patient had undergone a mastopexy augmentation, or a combination breast lift with implants.

Dr. Colville found it very unusual when his patient admitted that she had never been pleased with the previous surgery. She didn’t like the look nor feel of her breasts, thought her nipples didn’t line up with her breast mounds, and did not like the way her chest looked when her chest muscles were at work. Additionally, she thought the breasts were too far to each side and rightly believed that one was lower than the other.

This is a significant list of issues, and a sad situation for a patient to have never been pleased with something that was meant to achieve positive emotion. For Dr. Colville, the issues were all variables in one equation and would thus need to be addressed as one. Helped by fellow breast surgery expert Dr. Adams, Colville describes the challenges with this case and the steps he took to achieve a great result that finally allowed his patient to see and feel surgical success.
