Will Building Pectoralis Muscle Improve the Appearance of my Breast After Explantation?

Building muscle generally does not lift breasts after implant removal
Breast implant removal (explantation) and building pectoralis muscle fullness to compensate
Building the pectoralis muscle MAY contribute to fullness of the evacuated breast after implantation but this is, for all practical purposes, relatively negligible. When breast implants and replaced with fat, the fat is intetionally placed withint the muscle to bulk it up.
Explantation of breast implant
Skin retraction after breast implant explantation is dependant on the quality of the skinn, the time lapsed since the implnat was put in, and how long after explantation you are.
Building the pectoralis muscle will not improve on the skin.
If your skin has streatcged and lost its elasticity then the skin will not cahnge after all the swelling is gone.To tighten the skin you may need a breast lift
