While most women are incredibly satisfied with the results of their breast augmentation procedure, there is a small percentage of women who experience rippling, a complication that negatively affects their breast augmentation results.

Implant rippling is one of the most common complications that can occur as a result of breast augmentation surgery. This issue primarily occurs on the outer sides of the breasts or on the inner sides of the breasts near the cleavage. Implant rippling is characterized by a noticeable wavy pattern that gives the breasts an odd and unnatural appearance.

At our center for plastic and reconstructive surgery, we offer implant revision surgery to correct complications from breast augmentation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Heistein can replace the implants as needed and properly place new implants in the breasts. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
