Is it possible to flip back a butt implant without resorting to surgery?

It seems that my round butt implant flipped. I do not understand how it happened, especially because my implants are under (between) the muscle. I would like to understand how that happened, but most of all is it possible to flip back a butt implant without resorting to surgery?

Yes, you may be able to manually flip the implant yourself. I have heard of patients having this before and they have been able to flip it back.

Yes, Its possible.  Your surgeon should be able to talk you through it over the phone.  Its possible with patients who engage in heavy physical activity.  Although this is highly unlikely to happen.
