hello, I regularly go to the gym, if I have a breast implant will the implant under my muscle be squeezed by the muscle?

If the breast implant is in fact under the muscle, the pectoralis major muscle will “squeeze” the implant with certain exercises. This is more evident in some patients than others. This is more apparent when the exercise performed is designed specifically for the pectoralis major muscle. This action does not create a problem other than the temporary distortion of the muscle.
