Breast implant rippling is usually an aftereffect of breast implant. Breast implant is a kind of plastic surgery, wherein the natural breasts are implanted with silicone or saline filled sacks. The breast implant surface ripples or wrinkles. The effects can be seen and/or felt. Rippling can happen with saline and silicone implants as well. It is most likely to occur with saline implants due to the fluid nature of saline. There are less chances of rippling with silicone implant due to the fact that silicone gel is more cohesive in nature. But saline implants will definitely have ripple effects over time.
Areas affected by rippling
The areas of the breast which are affected mostly are the places where there are less or no muscle coverage. Especially along the outer edges and the cleavage area. It is mostly visible if you are bending over to pick up something from the floor.
Reasons for breast implant rippling
Rippling mainly happens due to the lack of breast tissues and under filling of the saline implants. Textured implants are also one of the reasons for rippling. The quality of a patient’s skin and tissues also play a major role in rippling.
How to reduce the appearance of breast implant rippling?
Fat grafting is an excellent option to reduce the appearance of breast implant rippling. It is a process which involves taking the extra fat from the fatty regions of your body, processing that fat and then re-injecting that fat in your breasts to make it look fuller and contoured. The rippling effect is visibly diminished after fat grafting.
The procedure of fat grafting can also be carried out along with the breast implant surgery depending upon the anatomy of the patient. It is a relatively new technique and has become more popular over the past few years. It also helps to slim down the fatty areas of the body while giving your breast beautiful and fuller shape, though this procedure is not advisable for very thin people.
A distinct advantage of fat grafting is that it avoids the need to do an open surgery. Simultaneously it does not require the patient to stay in hospital for a long period of time. According to some surgeons, it also improves your skin quality.
Fat grafting involves
- Fat harvesting– Excess fat is extracted from the body via liposuction.
- Fat purification– The extracted fat is processed for removal of impurities and concentrate stem cells.
- Micro-grafting technique-The purified fat and stem cells are then re-injected back into the breasts.
