If you’ve had a breast augmentation in the past and are unhappy with the appearance of ripples in the skin of your breasts, don’t assume this unsightly look cannot be corrected. With the help of a breast augmentation revision, the breast skin can be made smooth once again.
Saline implants have been known to create visible lines in the breast skin around the edges. These are known as traction ripples. At Changes Plastic Surgery and Spa, there are a variety of methods for breast augmentation revision to help correct this common issue. The ideal method depends on what the patient’s issues are regarding their breast augmentation.
Sometimes putting more saline into the implants may make the ripples disappear but will also increase the fullness of the breast. One possible solution could be moving the implant from above the muscle to below it. Sub-muscular implants conceal the shape and allow for a more natural look. However, the recovery time is increased with this procedure.
