This breast augmentation complication is very rare but can lead to a loss of cleavage between the breasts. It can occur when breast implants are above the muscle or below. Plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael J. Brown, has patients travel from across the country for this rare type of correction. Breast implant exchange is usually performed during the correction, but not necessarily.
She had her initial breast augmentation done elsewhere. She was concerned about her cleavage. She kept her original breast implants and underwent a synmastia repair. This is one of the ways that synmastia can be repaired. You can see the internal stitches. Dr. Brown also uses other more sophisticated techniques to repair synmastia.
She had a very large augmentation done in Rockville, Maryland and presented two years later with concerns about her cleavage. She did not want any corrective surgery done to her areolas. She was pleased with the restoration of her cleavage. Her before augmentation photos were not available.
