Scar Tissue Flaps for the Correction of Postimplant Breast Rippling

Hamid Massiha. Ann Plast Surg.

Abstract

The author addresses rippling of the breast in patients with breast implants as a result of breast reconstruction or in cases of primary or secondary breast augmentation. The technique consists of rotating a flap of scar tissue from thicker parts of the breast to the thin, affected areas. The technique is simple both to learn and to teach. The author also discusses fat grafting in a patient who had severe rippling deformities in all areas of her breasts. Results of the fat grafting are impressively effective 3 years after correction.
