How do you treat breast implant malposition?

Answer:

Malposition of a breast implant can entail a lot of different concepts including lateralization, medialization leading to symmastia, and bottoming out inferiorly. In all cases the pocket has to be adjusted so that these problems do not recur. Sometimes the creation of a new pocket is necessary and is called a neo-subpectoral pocket. Many times the old pocket can be used, and repair or tightening of the pocket can be performed which is called a capsulorrhaphy. In some instances, an acellular dermal matrix (ADM), such as Strattice is used to reinforce the pocket repair.
