Figure 1: Preoperative photographs show the enlargement and tightness of the right reconstructed breast compared with the left reconstructed breast.

Mentions: This occurred on a background of having a right latissimus dorsi breast reconstruction with implant insertion 10 years earlier for breast cancer. She was later diagnosed with left breast cancer and underwent the same reconstruction on the left side one year later. She was noted to be taking rivaroxaban for recurrent deep vein thrombosis and atrial fibrillation. She was not taking any other medications that would predispose her to haemorrhage. Examination of her reconstructed breasts revealed asymmetry with a tight swollen right breast (Fig. 1). Ultrasound showed an extensively septated collection superficial to the capsule of the implant in keeping with a significant-sized hematoma.
