Breast implants rippling

Common Questions and Answers about Breast implants rippling


Avatar n tn I had breast implants in for 20 years. I went in regularly and had them checked. I did not, however, breast feed my kids. I waited until I was done. The doctor kept telling me he thought everything was fine. I began having major health issues. I told a friend how I was feeling and she asked me if I happened to have implants. I couldn't believe it! She said that many girls have sued the implant company and gotten money because they have gotten ill from the implants.
Avatar f tn I prefer breast implants to be placed under the muscle. I have very little breast tissue and have heard that people with no breast tissue or little breast tissue will get better results if the implants are placed under the muscle. And I will most probably be getting implants within couple of months. I have already talked to a surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein of Steeles Avenue Cosmetic Surgery Clinic in Toronto, but haven't confirmed of getting the surgery.
Avatar n tn Rippling is not necessarily the breast... you can feel the implant when you push up on your breast which could be ripples. Saline is a liquid form compared to a gel, so when pressure is applied to the implant upon your skin, you are going to fill the implant ripple when pushing on your breast. I hope this explains it well enough. However, please note that this is not something that anyone can see visually. You might want discuss this concern to your surgeon so you have a better understanding.
Avatar n tn In my opinion, silicone gel implants feel more natural and nearly eliminae he problem of rippling that saline implants sometimes cause. Sagging is not an issue with either implant if you require a lift at the same time. I find both implants are safe and, in fact, I persoanlly have never taken out the current generation of gel implants for any problem. Gel implants, however, are more expensive than saline.
Avatar n tn I am in the "asking questions" stage before seeing a plastic surgeon as I am considering breast implants to enlarge a "barely A" to a "C" cup. I am wondering if cost of implants has anything to do with outcome. One nurse told me about tissue expanders before the actual implant will give a better look, any truth to this? Also, since the shell of the implant is silicone any reason to not choose silicone fill?
Avatar n tn The rippling you describe is probably the result of saline implants. Gel implants will not do this very often. It wounds like you need a revision of the lift with new implants. Every office has different policies regarding revision surgery, and I cannot speak for the surgical group you are seeing. My bet is that there will be some charge after three years post surgery, but it may be possible to work out some reduction of fees for the revision.
Avatar f tn I breastfed my daughter for 16 months and my boobs looked exactly like they did before I had her. They didn't sag or look deflated. So I'd say the changes you had were from being pregnant and not breastfeeding. I have heard that some women have trouble breastfeeding after an augmentation. It all depends where you were cut. Because sometimes blood vessels are severed and the lack of blood supply changes things. Join the Facebook group Dairy Queens and ask questions you have.
Avatar n tn I am struggling between decisions and would appreciate some insights in case I do need to remove at least one of the implants. Also, will I still have rippling if I take it out for a year and let the body heal? My skin is paper-thin without much breast tissues to start with... so my question is... will my tissues ever go back to its 'virgin' state or close to it such that that rippling or bottomed out would not be much of an issue like my other breast?
Avatar n tn I have moderate round implants with 275cc in my left breast and 300cc in my right breast. My right breast aches under the arm and feels overfull compared to the left. It is worse after exercise.It has bothered me since the day of surgery. I am a very thin small framed person. My left breast feels perfectly fine and I like the feel of the implant, however, the right implant feels harder and I prefer implants that are more underfilled than filled to capacity.
Avatar f tn hi, I had silicone breast implants nearly 6 yrs ago. they are placed under the muscle.. I did not have alot of breast tissue.. I have never been happy with them and I have always had pain. I have al;ways had burning in them, my surgeon was not very helpful.. I moved from england to the US so I have neot been able to afford to have an MRI. I have never been able to wear an underwired bra since having the implants because verytime I wore one I had pain on the outside of the breasts.
Avatar f tn Hello, For such symptoms, implant displacement, wrinkling or rippling and implant deflation which is when filler material leaks from the breast implant often due to a valve leak or a tear or cut in the implant shell should be ruled out. Deflation occurs when the shell of a saline-filled breast implant tears or when the seal around the valve used to fill the implant is broken and liquid saline leaks out from the implant. I suggest you to get it evaluated from your surgeon.
Avatar f tn I am very self conscious about the appearance of my one breast. I am also noticing some rippling on the outer side of that breast, even if I am standing straight and not bending over (bending over it is much worse) Do you have any suggestions? I have spent so much money now and I am still unhappy.
Avatar n tn I have recently been having the vibration or "purring" sensation in my left breast. It is good to see that there are others that have these sensations, but it also would be good to know what is causing them. I am not worried or scared, but I am curious.
