If I Remove My Breast Implants, Will I Need a Breast Lift?

At the time of your breast augmentation surgery, you probably are not thinking about whether you will need to remove your implants someday. But many women do decide later in life that they want to remove their implants without replacing them, due to personal preferences or medical necessity.

Will Breast Implants Shift If You Flex Your Chest?

Breast implants are a safe, effective way to enhance the shape of a woman’s breast profile. In most breast augmentation surgeries, the implant is placed beneath the muscles of the chest. Activating the chest muscles may cause the implants to shift. This is called “breast animation deformity,” but don’t worry — it’s completely harmless.

Breast animation deformity occurs most often in athletic women with very low body fat. Implants that shift during muscle activation will return to their original location once the muscles relax.

Dr. Joshua Greenwald, MD, is one of New York’s leading plastic surgeons. With decades of experience in breast augmentation and breast augmentation revision surgeries, Dr. Greenwald looks forward to helping you achieve the breast profile you desire. Read on to learn more about how breast implants may shift during muscle activation. (more…)

Top Reasons for Breast Revision Surgery

Sometimes, no matter how skilled or experienced a breast augmentation surgeon is, or how well the procedure is performed, changes occur after surgery that cause a patient to be dissatisfied with her results.

In these types of cases, breast revision surgery is an option. Breast revision is performed to help patients achieve the results they originally desired, to correct a complication or to improve the appearance of the breasts so they align with the patient’s current goals.
