Like any operation, side effects exist and breast augmentation surgery is not an exemption. A common problem is called breast implant animation. But you can take immediate action to remedy animation deformity in breast implants by knowing what this condition is and how it is most commonly addressed by our experienced plastic surgeon.
What is Animation Deformity?
Animation deformity is a relatively common condition that many breast implant patients experience. It is hallmarked by the excessive movement of a patient’s breast implant or implants. It also can include the distortion of the implant itself.
This condition occurs when only half of the pectoralis muscle covers the implant, causing the implant to move anytime the patient flexes or moves that part of her body. It can be aggravated by certain activities, most notably exercises like weightlifting.
Fortunately, animation distortion is easy to correct. At eSSe Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale, our qualified plastic surgeon has a great deal of experience treating this condition. Our surgeon can also correctly diagnose your animation deformity and determine the best course of action to remedy it entirely.
Correcting Animation Deformity in Breast Implant Revision
Repairing breast augmentation deformities such as animation deformity requires that you undergo surgery so that our plastic surgeon can completely cover the implant with the pectoralis muscle. When the implant is properly covered by the muscle, it effectively is compartmentalized and unable to move in and out of placement as it did prior to the surgery.
The replacement of the implant also prevents it from becoming distorted when you flex, exercise or otherwise move the upper part of your body. You can resume your normal activities without fear of your implants moving or taking on a rippling appearance as you sit up, lie down, flex or move in other normal ways.
However, it is important that you entrust your animation deformity diagnosis and repair to a surgeon who is qualified and knowledgeable of this condition. A surgeon who has treated this condition in other patients and knows the proper repair methods to undertake during the surgery can help you recover faster so that you can resume your normal life sooner.
