This 48 year-old female previously underwent bilateral nipple-sparing mastectomies with implant breast reconstruction by another provider. She developed complications of the left breast implant reconstruction, including capsular contracture (hardening of the implant), implant malposition (superior migration of implant), and severe pain. She had multiple failed attempts at correcting these issues with implant revisionary surgery (by another provider). The left breast implant was removed with capsulectomy (removal of scar tissue) and replaced with a stacked deep inferior epigastric artery perforator (DIEP) flap reconstruction
