The author addresses rippling of the breast in patients with breast implants as a result of breast reconstruction or in cases of primary or secondary breast augmentation. The technique consists of rotating a flap of scar tissue from thicker parts of the breast to the thin, affected areas. The technique is simple both to learn and to teach. The author also discusses fat grafting in a patient who had severe rippling deformities in all areas of her breasts. Results of the fat grafting are… 
Acellular Dermal Matrix for Optimizing Outcomes in Implant-Based Breast Reconstruction: Primary and Revisionary Procedures
TLDR
A direct-to-implant approach to primary breast reconstruction following nipple-areola sparing mastectomy (NASM) is detailed and the revisionary procedures highlighted include the correction of implant malposition and the management of capsular contracture.
Salvage of Exposed Breast Implant Using Capsular Flaps
TLDR
The authors describe an innovative technique using capsular flaps which are harvested from thicker viable tissues and inset in multiple layers into the fistula tract to reinforce the breast envelope and prevent recurrence of implant extrusion.
Maximizing the Use of Precapsular Space and the Choice of Implant Type in Breast Augmentation Mammaplasty Revisions: Review of 49 Consecutive Procedures and Patient Satisfaction Assessment
TLDR
The creation of a neoprecapsular pocket combined in peculiar cases with the placement of polyurethane-coated implants is a versatile option that offers an effective one-stage solution for the correction of cosmetic mammaplasty-induced deformities.
Rippling Following Breast Augmentation or Reconstruction: Aetiology, Emerging Treatment Options and a Novel Classification of Severity
TLDR
The proposed classification aims to standardise the clinical description of rippling, which will be valuable in determining the efficacy of new treatments and better characterising long-term complications from breast augmentations or reconstructions.
Breast Implant Capsule Flaps and Grafts: A Review of the Literature
TLDR
The capsular flaps and grafts are indicated mainly to address breast implant-related problems and represent a versatile and reliable source of tissue for both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.
Fat Grafting to the Breast Revisited: Safety and Efficacy
TLDR
A retrospective examination of 17 breast procedures performed using fat grafting from 1995 to 2000 finds no evidence thatFat grafting to breasts is less safe than any other form of breast surgery, and freefat grafting should be considered as an alternative or adjunct to breast augmentation and reconstruction procedures.

TLDR
Capsule flaps seem to be appropriate for the salvage of exposed implants and for enhancement of implant cover in the case of thin and injured tissue.
Acellular Dermal Matrix for the Treatment and Prevention of Implant-Associated Breast Deformities.
TLDR
Based on this experience in 77 breasts, acellular dermal matrix has shown promise in treating and preventing capsular contracture, rippling, implant malposition, and soft-tissue thinning.
