I recently saw a patient who was almost 4 years post-double mastectomy and cancer reconstruction. She had participated in a Pilates session that utilized spring-based equipment – a new workout regimen for her. She decided she wanted to kick her workout routine up a notch. This gal is strong, has worked out regularly her entire adult life and was a college athlete.
Yet, during this workout, she over-stretched her pectoral muscles, which caused her implant to bulge out on one breast. All it took was this one workout to over-exert her tissues. And, she felt no pain from it.
