Abstract

BACKGROUND:

There are many complications after augmentation mammoplasty with polyacrylamide hydrogel, but the optimal time window for implanting silicone prosthesis after removing polyacrylamide hydrogel is still unclear.

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the optimal time window for implanting silicone prosthesis after removing polyacrylamide hydrogel in augmentation mammoplasty.

METHODS:

Eighteen patients (33 mammas) with complications after augmentation mammoplasty with polyacrylamide hydrogel were subjected to implantation of silicone prosthesis at 6 months after removing polyarylamide hydrogel. A follow-up visit was performed including local sign, breast contour shape, size, location, feel, imaging findings and psychological status, and all the feedback information was graded as excellent, good, moderate, and poor.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

The follow-up results of 6 months to 2 years showed that the excellent and good rate was over 90%. The breast was round and full bodied, presenting with a drop-like shape, the contour is naturally soft, and it was soft and flexible to the feel, as well as no tenderness and wandering mass were found. It is indicated that the implantation of silicone prosthesis at 6 months after removing polyacrylamide hydrogel can avoid the impact of polyacrylamide hydrogel on augmentation mammaplasty at the most.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:
