Can breast implants flip?

A low risk of breast implant surgery is the implant rotating or moving out of place following surgery. You may need another operation to put the implant back in position. Patients are advised to contact their surgeon and healthcare team at MYA if they experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Swelling

  • Pain

  • Any changes to the shape to the breast

If you’re considering getting breast augmentation surgery, or if you’ve already had it, it’s important to regularly check for signs of a flipped breast implant. See this MYA Space post for more information {

We do not recommend that you try to move the implant back into place. If you are concerned about the position or shape of your implants following surgery, contact your surgeon and the clinical team at MYA. The best and most recommended way to detect if your implant has flipped is to have an MRI scan or an ultrasound may be recommended by your surgeon.
