It is a common complication that occurs when the breast implant is placed underneath the pectoralis muscle. Active individuals that tend to work out often may suffer from this complication disproportionately when the chest muscles are flexed.
In order to correct breast animation, Dr. Lee will use a variety of innovative techniques and will choose her approach based on the degree of implant deformity. During the procedure, she will revise the implant pocket by moving the implant to above the muscle if possible and covering it with acellular dermal matrix, which is a type of scaffolding that can help remodel the breast implant pocket for a better placement.
“Dr. Lee is wonderful! Unlike my first plastic surgeon, Dr. Lee actually listened to what my wants and needs were. My pain is gone and my breasts look and feel a 100X better! She is a very thorough, competent, and caring doctor. I highly recommend her!”
Patients suffering from implants that appear unnatural when the chest muscles are flexed will find breast animation correction surgery to be highly rewarding. Patients should have a good self-image and be in good mental and physical health with a clear understanding of surgical risks.
Clients should also be non-smokers with realistic expectations for their results. Dr. Lee will assess your candidacy on an individual basis during your confidential Beverly Hills consultation.
