Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants

Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants

Posted on July 1, 2023

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed worldwide. The procedure involves the placement of breast implants to enhance the size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts. While breast augmentation surgery is considered safe and effective, it’s important to understand the risks associated with the procedure, including dynamic distortion of breast implants. In this blog post, we will explore dynamic distortion of breast implants, its causes, and what to do if you experience it.

What is Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants?

Dynamic distortion of breast implants, also known as animation deformity, occurs when the breast implants move in an unnatural way with certain movements of the body. This can happen when the pectoral muscles underneath the breast implants contract, causing the implants to move or shift. Dynamic distortion is more common in women who opt for submuscular implant placement, where the implants are placed beneath the chest muscles.

Causes of Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants

Dynamic distortion can occur due to various reasons, including:

  • The size and shape of the implants
  • The placement of the implants
  • The location of the incision
  • The strength and size of the chest muscles
  • The level of physical activity of the patient

What to Do If You Experience Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants

If you experience dynamic distortion after breast augmentation surgery, the first step is to consult a board certified plastic surgeon. They will evaluate your condition and determine the cause of the distortion. Depending on the severity of the condition, your surgeon may recommend various treatment options, including implant exchange, implant repositioning, or a combination of both. In some cases, Botox injections may also be used to relax the chest muscles and reduce the appearance of dynamic distortion.

Preventing Dynamic Distortion of Breast Implants

One way is to choose the right implant size and shape based on your body type and lifestyle. Your surgeon can guide you in selecting the appropriate implant based on your goals and preferences. Additionally, choosing the right implant placement can also reduce the risk of dynamic distortion. Your surgeon may recommend subglandular placement if you’re concerned about dynamic distortion or if you have a large muscle mass.

Choosing the Right Surgeon for Breast Augmentation

If you’re considering breast augmentation plastic surgery, it’s important to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in the procedure.
