Malpositioned breast implant correction innovation

Unfortunately, breast implants are sometimes positioned wrongly. A new method to correct such problems – using shoelaces – is described by Dr. Daniel C. Mills II, MD, FACS:

of the Aesthetic Plastic Surgical Institute, Laguna Beach, California, in the latest edition of Aesthetic Surgery Journal :

¨Implant malposition after breast augmentation surgery remains a common complication. Several surgical options exist to correct the resultant deformity; however, all involve additional risks, costs, and the increased potential for patient dissatisfaction. In my practice, I have developed a nonsurgical therapy using shoelaces, which, when tied and placed in a certain fashion, can correct this deformity.¨
