If your pectoral implant has displaced, it is difficult reposition it and secure it. Additional surgery is likely required. You should be seen by a board-certified Plastic Surgeon for an in-person assessment.
I would have to examine you to make any recommendations about proper management or provide insight into how something like this would be avoided in the future.
