Abstract

Breast contour deformities, lack of volume and asymmetry are common confronted problems after breast augmentation with implants. These problems can be corrected by using temporary fillers or autologous fat grafts. The purpose of this study was to introduce our experience using long lasting temporary filler (Aquafilling(R)) for the correction of unfavorable results after breast augmentation with silicone implants. Two non-pregnant, non-breastfeeding women unsatisfied with previous breast augmentation with silicone implants were recruited for this study. All procedures were performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Efficacy and safety assessments were carried out at follow-up visits (1, 3, and 6 months). The study showed that Aquafilling(R) could provide satisfactory improvement in breast shape and volume. Also it showed that the corrected volume and shape were lasting without affecting the breasts' original volume. Patients reported high satisfaction as Aquafilling(R) was generally well tolerated with no inflammatory reactions or serious adverse events. We recommend that Aquafilling(R) as a new option for the correction of minor problems after breast augmentation surgery with implants. However, further follow-up studies are required to observe long-term results.
