The skin and breast tissue were stretched out by the presence of the implant. The skin will behave differently when you are standing due to gravity.
Breast implant removal - are the indentations and wrinkling ok?
Thank you for asking about your breast implant removal.
- I am sorry you had to have your implants removed but glad you are doing ok.
- If you didn't have a breast lift when the implants were removed, you are seeing the effect of the implant over the years, stretching your skin.
- If it troubles you, you can have a small vertical lift.
- If not, then it does not signify a medical problem and can be left alone.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Implant removal and contour irregularities
Thank you for your question. It is very common to have Contour irregularities after removing breast implants due to scar contracture. This can be remedied by breaking up the scar and injecting some fat and areas of rippling, Contour regularities and volume deficiency. Wish you all the luck.
Hello and thank you for your question. Without photographs and an examination it is hard to determine what may be happening with your implants. You may have a case of rippling of the implant. It would be helpful to know what type of implants were used. If this is rippling changing the position of the implant may help. Best WishesTheodore Nyame MD
Breast indent and wrinkling?
Thank you for sharing your question and congratulations on your successful recovery. It is difficult without an in-person examination or full series of photographs to offer definite advice but your right breast may have some subtle scar tissue tethering your nipple and areola tissue to your remaining breast tissue, while your left breast is likely wrinkly from having a bit more skin present relative to the volume of your breast tissue only evident while laying down as gravity pulls the tissue while standing causing stretching of the skin. Hope this helps.
