Before And After Photos
This mother of two is 5’4″ and 152 pounds. She had a bilateral breast augmentation with 275cc smooth silicone implants placed beneath the muscle. She is seen before surgery, after four months and at one year. At the four month visit it was obvious that the right implant had moved superiorly because of the activity of the pectoralis muscle. I corrected the breast implant position by lowering the implant pocket under local anesthesia in my facility.
The biggest issue by far with submuscular placement of breast implants is that the muscle can influence the position of the breast implant depending on the individual. This is often initially after your procedure for the first month or two before it all “settles”. She should have come back sooner and told me that the implant had moved upwards and it would have been possible to move the implant to the correct position with massage and a breast band alone.
