Are the results of your primary breast augmentation procedure being ruined by implant rippling? Implant rippling is a somewhat common issue that causes a wavy pattern to form around the outer edges of the breasts or along the inner side of the breasts near the cleavage.
The main cause of implant rippling is a lack of soft-tissue coverage. When the implants don’t have enough tissue covering them, ripples in the implants can show on the breasts in the form of skin rippling.
Implant rippling can occur in both saline and silicone implants, though it is more common in saline implants. The best way to avoid implant rippling is to place the implant under the chest muscles to ensure there is enough soft-tissue coverage.
