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.
