1. Symmastia (When implants are too close together, no space between breasts)
2. Lateral Displacement (When implants are too far apart and/or move too far to outer edge of chest-especially when lying down)
3. Breast Contracture- Hardening or excessive firmness of breasts
4. Size / shape issues- too big or too small, too round, too full
5. Wrinkling of Implants
6. Sagging (Ptosis) of Breasts- not enough upper pole fullness

2. a change in the amount of cleavage,
3. a change in the size of the implant,
4. a change in the feel of the breast implant (firmness or wrinkling).
