This 25-year-old patient had subglandular breast augmentation in 2008. She developed grade 2 capsule contracture and was treated medically with some improvement. Fourteen months after surgery, the capsule contracture was grade 3 that did not respond to medical treatment. Capsulectomy was performed with implants changed to subpectoral pockets. Capsule contracture grade 3 developed on the right side postoperatively. There was a discussion on polyurethane implants and Alloderm. A second revision was performed and she returned in 2015 with flipping of the implants and indentations.
