Can regular exercise help breast implant rippling disappear or diminish?
What Helps Prevent Breast Implant Rippling?
Doctor Answers 17
Factors that are associated with increased rippling include:
- Traditional Saline implants (IDEAL® Saline implants less likely)
- Textured implants
- Large implants
- Thin patients with low BMI
- Implants placed above the muscle
- Prior history of rippling
- Heavier and larger breasted women
- Using a highly cohesive form-stabile silicone implants (gummy bear)
- Smooth implants
- Smaller implants
- Submuscular placement
Breast Implant Rippling
Rippling is a greater concern for thinner or more athletic women who have less breast tissue. No exercise can be used to prevent rippling. There are some presurgical decisions such as going under the muscle and choosing gel implants over saline which may reduce the risk of rippling.
Causes for implant rippling
Thank you for your question.
In general, the following tenants hold true: Under the muscle ripples less than over the muscle, silicone gel implants ripple less than saline implants, and if you can feel your ribs on your chest wall then you will likely be able to feel the edge of your implant and are also at risk for experiencing rippling.
Thin women with little overlying soft tissue or breast tissue are at the most risk for experiencing rippling of breast implants.
Regular exercise will not make breast implant rippling go away or lessen.
I hope this helps.

Prevention Of Implant Rippling
There are no exercises which will prevent or improve implant rippling. The things which, I feel, will lessen the chances of developing ripples lies in the choice of implant type and location of placement. In my experience, smooth silicone implants which are placed below the chest muscle have the lowest incidence of rippling.
Rippling is seen when the soft tissue covering over an implant is too thin. Saline implants also tend to ripple more than silicone implants. In someone with thin tissue in the upper portion of the breast, placing the implant under the muscle, either in a sub muscular or dual plane can help. Also silicone implants could be used in place of saline to reduce this risk as well.
Rippling with breast implants
Breast Implant Rippling in tall , lean women
unfortunately, exercise will not help this problem
Rippling can be reduced with higher fill implants, #Inspira or saline overfill

Saline filled implant rippling
Rippling of breast implants happens because there is not enough soft tissue coverage over the implant. So in fact, exercise may make it worse because presumably you may lose weight and have thinner coverage.
There have been may good answers posted here. The most important variable is the amount of original breast skin. With much to "augment" you will see what you augmented with more easily...i.e.. the implant. To see the implant less it an be placed under the muscle. The silicone vs. saline issue is simple for me. I have chosen saline because of the "medical follow up" required with silicone, and I have great results using saline. I never fill the implant to the lowest or highest allowed fill volumes, with the belief I will avoid wrinkling and firmness on either side of the fill range. I use a serratus muscle coverage for the lower outer pocket to get more coverage, and I use tumescent solution to minimize the discomfort created by raising this muscle.
