What Causes Implant Rippling to Occur?

Published on February 15, 2018 by

While a breast augmentation procedure usually provides natural-looking results that fully satisfy the expectations of the patient, there are some complications that can occur. Implant rippling is one of these complications and can significantly diminish the beauty of your breasts.

Rippling is characterized by the appearance of a wavy pattern along the outer side or inner side of the breasts. There are several reasons why implant rippling can occur. One of the most common reasons is poor implant positioning. If there is not enough tissue to properly cover the implant, the chance of experiencing rippling is significantly increased.
