Breast implants have flipped
Thank you for your question. An exam or photos would be useful to advise you. Placing smooth, round implants under the muscle should completely eliminate the issue of "rotation" as round implants can rotate freely.
I recommend that you continue to share your concerns and discuss with your Plastic Surgeon so that they can provide details for your plan.
All the best
Details provided suggest you have had an anatomical shaped implant
Thank you for your question. The details provided suggest that you have had subglandular placement of textured anatomical shaped silicone implants. These implants are not round and result in abnormal shaped breasts when they rotate. Anatomical shaped implants are manufactured with textured surfaces to encourage tissue adherence to reduce likelihood of displacement. If these assumptions are correct then many options that can be exercises to remedy the problem. In my opinion, replacing the implant with a round implant will essentially eliminate the problem abnormal breast shape since rotation of a round implant does not change the shape. Since rotation of a round implant is not problematic, it is my preference to use a smooth surface implant. Site change of the implant to a submuscular position is especially important if you wish to downsize or replace with an anatomical shaped implant.
