Most women who get breast implants can go many years, sometimes even decades, without a single problem. But for the small majority of women with issues, breast implant malposition is a common reason for a surgical procedure known as breast revision. If you suffer from malposition, the boar-certified doctors of MP Plastic Surgery can help you get beautiful and natural-looking breasts with revision surgery.
What Is Breast Implant Malposition?
During breast augmentation, your surgeon will create a pocket behind the breast where the implant will sit. This is called, appropriately, the breast pocket. Usually, the body will form a protective capsule of soft scar tissue around the implant to hold it in place. However, the implant can become loose, fall out of pocket, or shift. The implant can then move to one side or sit too high or too low. It is called breast implant malposition when this happens, but it is correctable with breast revision. If your implants are out of place or one implant is higher than the other, you can achieve youthful and natural-looking breasts with breast revision surgery.
