Malposition lateral or rotation
How do you determine when malposition happens.?? One implant shifts past armpit laying down and standing up it seems rotated in shape compared to the other. How to tell if it's not settled in the pocket. I have overs silicone
Is your implant round? If it's round (not teardrop) it can only flip back to front. It's possible and most commonly seen with the Allergan highly cohesive series "C". I can tell by visual and physical exam and I can often flip it back without surgery. Now as to moving laterally when lying down--lateral displacement--some is normal. Our natural breasts move laterally when we lie down and our implants will move some too to some extent. Now if the implants move too far or one moves out more than the other (sometimes you can see your ribs it can move so far) then often that needs to be fixed in the operating room. Hope this helps!
I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
