Breast augmentation and back pain - Upright Health

Breast augmentation and back pain

Over the years, I've worked with many women who have had breast implants. Almost all of the women I've worked with who have had breast implants have complained about back pain and almost impossible-to-stop shoulder slouching.

Now, I know that most of the people who come to see me are coming because of pain, so this is probably not an issue that happens to every woman with breast implants, but it's something I've seen enough times to think it's maybe not a great idea to do (certainly not for myself!).

Sometimes it is possible to get relief from the tightness in the chest that keeps pulling the shoulders forward. Several times I've seen instances where constant soft-tissue work just became a daily necessity (in some ways it's a necessity for everyone!). With back pain, sometimes the implants have had to come out for relief.

I don't know how much information is out there on this, so I'd like to throw a couple questions out to the internet...

Do you or someone you know have implants with no problems? Or are constant exercises, stretches, and soft-tissue work necessary to stay out of pain? Did anyone advise you of the possibility of this kind of development of pain?

Feel free to share your experiences in the comment section below.

Update

It's been many years since this post originally went up on the internet. There are a lot of women who have gotten breast implants and then developed shoulder, neck, and back issues. But does that mean getting implants automatically results in having those problems? I don't think so. Some women get implants and have no problems with their shoulders, neck, or back, so there must be I think there's something else going on.

If you've made it here, you've probably been told some frustrating things like "it's all in your head, maybe implants just aren't for you, there's nothing wrong with your body, etc." In some sense, these things are partially true. Be glad there's nothing in the X-rays and MRIs, since another surgery would likely not be that helpful anyway. But just because medical professionals can't find something OBVIOUSLY wrong with a bone or a tendon or a tumor, doesn't mean there is nothing to be done.

For any woman who's frustrated with these problems, I think it's important to realize that these same problems are also extremely common for women who DO NOT have implants. The problem can be present for ALL women, and it can be made worse by a variety of factors (e.g. size of implant, duration of having had implants, specific exercises, lack of exercise, etc.). I think the most productive and practical way to think of the problem is to focus attention on the muscles that may be contributing to your issues.

To help you understand, let's look at how something else can land you in the same painful situation.

How yoga (and other popular women's fitness regimens) can lead to shoulder, back, and neck issues).

The first thing you need to recognize is that the problem is not just with implants. The problem has to do with how the muscles of your body work together or don't work together to keep your shoulders, back, and neck happy. To clarify this, let's look at how many women - without implants - often end up with the same issues you have.

Yoga is hugely popular among women. For many, it's viewed as a perfect exercise regimen. Many have the best of intentions while doing yoga, believing that the increased flexibility will naturally lead to more comfort, but the reality is that there is no such thing as a perfect exercise regimen, and yoga can and does cause pain.

The most common yoga issue I've seen in female clients is pain in the thoracic spine, along the neck, and/or around the shoulder. In this video I explain some of the shortcomings of yoga that setup this problem.

The quick summary is this: yoga only very minimally trains the muscles of your body that are responsible for holding your shoulders back. The majority of poses and movements train the shoulders into a protracted position. This strengthens the muscles of the chest and front of the shoulder while allowing the muscles of the back of the shoulder and around the shoulder blade to get relatively weaker.

This is not a balanced situation for your body, and shoulder and neck issues are the result.

Yoga is not the only culprit here. Any exercise regimen that does not very specifically target the muscles responsible for good shoulder position will eventually train the shoulders into pain. Boot camps and group workouts, no matter what brand they may fall under, more often than not have the same shortcomings. It's much easier (in terms of equipment setup and coaching) to have people do exercises like planks, mountain climbers, pushups, and dips. None of these exercises require equipment of any kind, after all.

But all of those exercises will eventually train poor shoulder positioning unless exercises involving pulling/rowing are used to train the opposing muscles (examples: dumbbell rows, inverted rows, rear delt flyes). All those exercises require equipment, are harder to coach, and require much more attention to form and appropriate weight selection - which can be impossible to deal with in a group situation!

Even if you weren't doing yoga or any type of boot camp/group fitness class, modern life does nothing to train the posterior shoulder muscles or the muscles that stabilize the shoulder blade. So many people who are sedentary at desk jobs all day can end up with the same kind of gnawing pain and tension along the mid back, neck, and shoulder.

Why would implants matter then? 

I think of implants as the straw that breaks the camel's back (or strains the woman's back, in this case). The extra weight is borne by the pectoral muscles (chest muscles), which exerts a pull on the shoulders into the forward position. For some women who have stronger posterior shoulder and shoulder blade muscles in the back, this may pose no issue whatsoever.

For women who do not have strong enough posterior shoulder and shoulder blade muscles to handle this added weight, the result can be a gnawing feeling of strain and tension that no amount of massaging relieves. This is simply an issue of having the strength to handle the new challenge.

If, for example, I had you hold a 5 pound dumbbell in your hand, you might be able to do it for 15 minutes without any problem. If I made it 10 pounds, you still might be able to do it for 15 minutes without cramping or complaining from the muscles of your fingers and forearms. But if I increased that weight to 15 pounds, you would very likely find your forearm and finger muscles screaming well before 15 minutes were up.

Does that mean 15 pounds is the maximum weight a female hand can hold for 15 minutes? No! It means your hand, given its current training and strength levels, cannot handle more than that - for now. With training, your hand could certainly do it, but it needs practice before it will be able to do it. It's important to also point out that, in this situation, no amount of massage or chiropractic adjustments would make this task less painful. This is a problem of training. If your muscles aren't strong enough, they simply aren't strong enough. The pain is a signal of struggle due to weakness. 

This is the same situation as with implants and the muscles of the back and shoulder. If the muscles are not trained to handle the added weight of the implants, the implants may seem to be the problem. But implants are only side of the equation.  The other side is the strength of the opposing muscles! 

So what are your options?

From this perspective, you have two choices: strengthen the muscles necessary to keep your body comfortable OR remove the implants. I'm a man who has never had and (I believe I can safely predict) never will have breast implants, so I can't fully put myself in your shoes, but I can tell you this: if I imagine myself in a similar situation, I would most definitely attempt to address the musculature gradually and precisely. You probably chose to have the implants for a reason, and those reasons are likely still there for you. Also, even if you remove the implants, if the shoulder and back muscles are weak and never get trained up, you may still end up with back and shoulder pain even if you do remove the implants. I would choose to try to exercise my way out of the problem first before getting the implants removed. 

If you want to keep the implants, the challenge will be to build the strength to keep them. And you'll just need to recognize that you'll need to keep doing exercise throughout your life to feel comfortable and pain free. In some that may inspire some dread..."I'll have to exercise forever to stay comfortable?!" The reality is that everyone needs to exercise and move their bodies to stay comfortable. The only difference for you is that you'll have bigger boobs while you exercise. 

How can you start retraining your body?

  1. Use these exercises as a starting point. They're simple. They're easy. They are NOT the end-all, be-all. They will help you get control over the right muscles to start. You'll need to increase the difficulty within two weeks.
  2. Watch our YouTube videos related to the shoulders.
  3. Find a trainer near you to help you. It would not be a good idea to start doing a boot camp or group class (for the reasons given above). Find someone you feel comfortable with and who understands that you need to learn perfect form rather than just get a sweat on. You can increase the intensity once you have learned to coordinate your shoulder and back muscles better. If you can't find someone near you, Skype can work.
  4. Check out the Shoulder Fix. This is a do it yourself program packed with written instructions and videos to help you carefully retrain your shoulders. It's a program designed to help you understand good shoulder and spine function and then safely and gradually retrain it. We made it because our schedules at Upright Health are too full to help everyone we want to help, not everyone can afford to train with us for months, and there are millions of people who need this safe, intelligent approach. So we filmed a ton of videos and put it all together online so you can start it instantly at less than the cost of a session with us. You check it out here.

Want shoulders that feel good and move well?

In closing

Hopefully you find this theory and perspective helpful. Know that you're not alone, and that if you take proactive steps to retrain your body, you can get a whole heck of a lot more comfortable!

I am 48 years old,my implants are 13 years old,my shoulders are rounding and my low back hurts every day. Im sick of narcotics, Have had three rubtured disks, a metal plate all above my shoulders. My apointment is tomarow to discuss reduction. I cant wait.

    Matt Hsu - December 18, 2012

    Hi Charlotte,

    Thanks for sharing your breast implant experience for others to read about. When did your pain start? Was it immediate or did it take a while for pain to set in?

    Good luck to you!

Tara - January 9, 2013

My pain in lower back actually sciatica started gradually after breast implAnt. I was always super active, walked for hours, stood for hours, never back pain. A year after the surgery, I can’t even walk. I am so disabled and I cry all the time. Don’t know what to do. I hate to do more surgeries. Tried physical therapy for months, trainers, doctors, med. nothing helps. I think I will e on a wheelchair if this continues. Please someone tell m should I do removal or lift.

    Matt Hsu - January 9, 2013

    Tara, I’ve heard of someone having issues that bad only one other time (she actually did end up in a wheelchair and then did a hip surgery — which did not help). The removal did end up helping her a lot. I don’t think she tried doing a lift, so I can’t tell you whether that would get you any different result from a removal based on her experience. Theoretically, I would think the removal would make a bigger difference just from a physics standpoint, as with implants you have added weight on the front of your body that your body right now is having trouble coping with. Lifting may not be enough difference to help change that situation. What have your docs said?

    Melanie - February 26, 2014

    My back pain started out 6 weeks after I had my breast surgery done. I already have a bad back but it’s something that comes and goes . My lower back has been killing me the last 2 weeks I’m so in tears I go see a doc tomorrow. I’m very active I run I workout a lot and I’m 118lbs so small framed well I got full C cups I think the extra weight is messing with me. I can’t sleep right at night either. I been going swimming to help with my lower back been doing hot tub and sauna but the pain is still there . I also bought a good runner support bra but that doesn’t help..I’m frustrated

      How many cc did you get?

Londonluvly - March 18, 2013

I have been experiencing neck shoulder and back pain for some years now and have been diagnosed and medically treated as a patient suffering with fibromyalgia as a result…
I have always thought that my breast augmentation surgery was the root cause of this pain but no medical professional would confirm this fact…!
I am so glad I have found your web page as this helps me know that I am on the right track in terms of receving a proper medical diagnosis…
I would appreciate it if you are still research this problem that you contact me…as I have a question to ask you…
Q:? Have you identified the reasons why this problem occurs to some woman and not others?
It maybe too late for me and numerous other women suffering with this problem…
I believe that it is in the public interest that this issue be highlighted and addressed or at the very least be included at the consultation stages as a protentional complication so we the patient can make a well informed choice to choose…
It is highly unfair that I have suffered extreme pain every second of every for many years without being given all the facts of the risks of this type of surgery.

    Matt Hsu - March 19, 2013

    Hi Londonluvly,

    I haven’t worked with a large enough number of women with breast implants with and without pain to come up with anything definitive. Even with back pain sufferers without breast implants, there are countless variables from individual to individual that can be involved in the development of pain (habitual movement patterns, old injuries, bone structure, muscle development, etc.).

    I don’t think everyone who gets implants will necessarily get pain, but it appears that some women do need to make some noticeable adjustments to their self-care regimen to stay out of pain. I’m hoping more women share their stories and are able to give each other advice for strategies for dealing with and/or solving the discomfort.

Alicia - March 20, 2013

I have had my breast implants for 3 year. My neck and upper back are KILLING me all the time now. So much so, that I get migranes sometimes, cant sleep, and looking up is a task! Although, I am only 31 years of age and do a ton of typing as well as texting (looking down) I know I have a protracted shoulder girdle and anterior pelvic tilt that can be corrected through posture stretches and exercise. I will keep my implants and spend the rest of my life correcting the damage done by the implants pulling my shoulders forward and sheer laziness.

Londongirl - May 22, 2013

Hi. I have had my implants for 12 years and am now 40. I’ve made an appointment to have them removed due to the back pain they have caused. I constantly slouch forward, my shoulders have rounded and I visit the chiropractor regularly to have my spine in the middle of my back realigned. I also suffer with lower back pain. Have come to the conclusion that the best thing is not to have them in the first place, leave nature alone. It is not natural for the body or its alignment to carry extra weight in front. Mine are large, 550ml but have also had problems with escapulation so with scar tissue, I am probably carrying approximately 1.7kg of excess weight – its a no brainer as to what is happening to my back. I would caution anyone from having them, if you have them, get them removed before you end up with life long injuries that will require constant care.

Joanna - May 29, 2013

I am 29, 5″4 130 with recently 500cc implant removal. I am 100% positive my implants caused my back pain.

Aimes - June 1, 2013

I’m 29 years old. I’ve gotten 500cc 1 year ago I am 130 pounds and 5’7. I am extremely active person and have never had back problems until recently it is getting so bad I am wanting to just remove the implants. 🙁

Regina - August 8, 2013

I am 35 years old and have had my implants for 12 years. I believe they are around 450 to 500cc. About a year ago I started suffering from neck and back pain. I strongly believe it is from my implants. I am 5ft 3′ and 118pds. Im very active and work hard to keep my body in shape. However, even that is not helping at this point. My breast are beginning to sag and my pain is becoming worse. Im considering a removal.

Marinela - August 15, 2013

I have naturally big breasts and I hate them ! I’m 5 feet weight 131 and 50 yr old when I gain weight I gain a lot in the boobs ! My neck pain is getting worst every day , lately I wake up in the middle of the night and have to take pain killers I also developed a hunch bump , I went to the dr to have a reduction and my insurance will paid for that! I will have surgery in October when I hold my Brest I think they weight about 2 pounds each so I’m sure carrying all this weight is what cause my neck pain , I can’t wait o take them!

Mandie - August 26, 2013

I am 35 and just had my implants removed nearly two weeks ago (after having them for 7 years). I have suffered with lower back back for years and suddenly it has (mostly!) gone! I don’t want to get too excited as it has only been 11 days, but I didn’t take a single painkiller after the operation and stopped the anti-inflamatory pills a week ago! I NEVER thought the implants may have been responsible for my lower back pain, but all the major episodes I had over the years were since implants and no physio/accupunturist/oesteopath/chiropractor could help me solve the problem. I also stand straighter now as I’m no longer embarassed to ‘put my shoulders back and chest out’.

For anyone thinking of explanting, I highly recommend it for so many reasons . . . easing my back pain was the absolute bonus I didn’t expect! There is a really good website call realself.com and if you search for ‘explant’ in the website and then click reviews, you’ll read women’s stories and see photos and there is an endless amount of support there!

Good luck with whatever decision you make ;0) I’m absolutely delighted to be the natural me again and my breasts look almost exactly as they did before I embarked on this crazy journey : )))) It’s all possible!

    Matt - August 26, 2013

    Thanks for sharing your story!

Melanie - October 22, 2013

I’ve had my implants in now for 3 years and have come to realize that I’ve been living with back pain for about a year now. My left shoulder has recently started hurting me too which has left me to start thinking about having my implants removed. I’ve always been an active person and no matter how many different types of exercises I do nothing seems to help. I love how my breasts look but if this is the price I have to pay then they’re just not worth it. If anyone has any specific types of exercises they do that has helped ease upper back pain and slouching shoulders please share. Thanks.

Katy - December 15, 2013

I got my implants about 2 years ago and back pain never left since the day I got them implanted. I can function normally but when I’m sitting in bed for a couple of hours my chest and upper back ache. My chest almost feels like it wants to collapse. What worries me the most is my chest cavity it aches when I get too cold as well.

MRcela - January 19, 2014

I also have been experiencing back pain. Is intolerable. I am going to get areduction

Kitty - July 5, 2014

I had my implants in 2010, 6 months later I was unable to twist or bend my lower back pain was that back, I had sustained an injury during a dance routine but was well & danced again after, the docs assure me that my old injury has healed (slipped disc L5S1) so they cannot find what is wrong with me!
I take 20 pain killers a day including Tramadol, naproxen & gabapentin!!
Also antidepressants I’m scared to know if these are linked as I’m torn about getting them out!
I know I need to as they are pips but so I get them replaced?
Can my implants really be causing my sciatica in my left side & chronic lower back pain??
Please help! X

Zanza Fuller - October 3, 2014

i have had my 550cc implants for 14 years and it was nine years before i started to experience back pain…. i now go to the chiropractor every week. i am in constant agony any it is getting worse. the pain is in my mid-back and nothing i do seems to help, i have had xrays but not an mri.. the x rays reveal nothing in midback but four pinched nerves in lower back. I start doing consultations to have them removed and a MUCH SMALLER VERSION PUT IN. i would rather none but I know that i probably would not have that as an option because of how it would look. i pray that having them removed will help with the pain.

    Matt Hsu - June 29, 2015

    If it took 9 years for pain to set in, you might want to also look at exercises that strengthen your upper back.

Jessica - November 11, 2014

I had 315cc saline implants put in under the muscle when I was 21 years old. I am now 26 and have had a lot of problems with my shoulders and upper back. Its almost impossible for me to not slouch because my chest muscles are so tight. I have had massage therapy, and gone to the chiropractor with little to no relief. I plan to get my implants removed sometime next year in hopes of relieving my pain. I sure wish I knew that the back pain was a possibility with implants…I would not have gotten them!

lisa - February 18, 2015

Wow I wish I had seen this before I decided to get my implants last week. I have been in constant pain since I got them, I am really nervous about the pain never ending… there needs to be more info available at consultations!

Bear - June 24, 2015

I am 28. I have suffered chronic back pain after an injury to my upper back.
I’m considering breast implants to correct tubular breasts

I was wondering if there is more chance of aggravation when the implant is placed under the pec muscle rather than just under breast tissue?

    Matt Hsu - June 29, 2015

    Unfortunately, none of us here are experts on the surgical procedure or any research examining that type of info. Sorry can’t help more.

Lynn - July 26, 2015

I had my implants in 2004. I have suffered from pain in my neck, shoulders, and upper back since about 2007. It is now to the point I can barely function most of the time. I am strongly considering having the implants removed. I am wondering if insurance will cover the removal but can’t seem to find any information or answers. I have no doubt the implants are the source of my pain.

Christie - July 27, 2015

Hi! Inhave implants for almost 15 years!!! My upper back, neck and shoulders hurt almost daily! I now have a curved upper spine and my lower spine is starting to move to the side and my hips hurt all the time! I am 40 years old and will be going to find out about reduction asap! I go to the chiropracror 3 times a week and get massages and still in pain! Boobs r not worth this! I will be walking bent over by 45 if i keep these things!

Karen - November 30, 2015

I had under muscle implants (400cc) in July 2012 and I’m around 130lbs, 5 ft 4 ins. I had suffered with lower back ache for many years before and have always had a curved looking spine. In 2013 the flare ups around my lower back came closer until the pain became constant. Then, in May 2014 after months of pain which I thought was from over-training, I was diagnosed with a right shoulder impingement. A few injections later I ended up having shoulder decompression on my left shoulder in September 2015. My right side still hurts daily and surgery is imminent. Then I underwent a discectomy and fenestration in November 2015. I’m unable to work out just yet and on sick leave until January 2016. I will face about another 5 months of rehabilitation before I’m back to an acceptable fit state where I can work out, swim, box, cycle and enjoy fitness. I know that my pectoral muscles are very tight and my physio is constantly working in softening the tightness. I can’t face any more surgery this year and am sick of it all. Next year I’ll face up to an explant and uplift. I suffered with back and neck ache before my breast augmentation. I also had clicky shoulders (especially when weight lifting I could hear the click) before my implants. I guess I had underlying issues and the glamour of having great boobs made me ignore the future possible risks of what impact these could have in my frame. I have a friend who has had imp,ants and she has no problem whatsoever, but we’re all different. If you have the money, private healthcare and an understanding company to allow you enough sick leave to cope with all this, go ahead. I’m going back to a more natural look, albeit with some scarring instead of droopy boobs.

Andrea - February 16, 2016

Hi, I’ve read with interest all your stories and have one question, would better or improved breast support/bras rectify these problems? I guess as the breasts have increased in size, they need more support or the increased weight will have a negative effect on the back and neck??

    Matt Hsu - February 16, 2016

    I have to preface this by saying that this is just a hypothesis, and I cannot say it with anything approaching total certainty.

    My suspicion at this point is that Karen, a previous commenter, is on to something. If you have the strength in your spinal musculature and in the muscles that help pull the shoulder blades/shoulders back, you’re probably going to have a much better time of implants. In my limited understanding of how implants are done, there is some new strain on the pectoral muscles that could exert an extra force on the shoulder blade/shoulder in a forward direction. Almost without fail, whenever we train people who have that kind of shoulder position (and the attendant clicking and popping in the shoulders), back and neck discomfort are an issue until the strength in the back, rhomboids, and mid/lower traps comes back online.

    A better bra may be of some help, but the weight of the breasts will still be supported by the counter forces produced in the spinal musculature and shoulder stabilizers.

JL - May 17, 2016

I’m 50 years old. My implants are 6 years old cohesive gel, under the muscle. I had back pain in the thoracic region almost immediately after the surgery, also intercosstal muscle pain. The PS assured me it had nothing to do with the implants. I got soft tissue work which helped. I then developed a low back issue which I attributed to exercise, then another episode of thoracic about 1 year ago. After a mammogram in Dec, my back flared up again as well as my chest. Turns out they ruptured the capsule that surrounds the implant. Once that healed my breasts were much softer and hence droopier. I have had relentless back pain and my pecs continue to tighten. In my 3rd round of physical therapy in 3 years. I’m done! I’ve thought this was the reason for my pain all along, finally have a PS that agrees. I’m schedule for removal of implants next month. Hoping I haven’t developed fibromyalgia as a result. Thanks for posting this info, only affirms my desicion even more.

c - August 15, 2016

OMG, I thought I was the only one. I had breast implants at age 45, a present for myself for losing weight and graduating from college with honors. I went to the very best surgeon. The doctor that invented the TUBA procedure. Over muscle. It was 45 minutes and virtually painless. I went from a saggy 34b to a lush 38D. I loved it!! For almost ten years I was fine until I gained 50 lbs. I have a deep, left shoulder pain, kind of upper back. It is constant. I have done everything I can think of, worn every kind of bra and device you can imagine. Lots of aspirin, ibuprofen and occasional tramadol prescribed for joint pain when I had lyme disease.

I am so sick of this. I know the weight gain did not help, I still have it and I am struggling. A year ago I started swimming regularly and heavily, I feel more pep and love it, but the weight and pain is still there. I no longer have the same kind of money for removal and reconstructive surgery. Insurance won’t cover anything.

I have been scared that there is more serious damage from these. They are not encapsulated, I get regular mammograms but just thinking what it has done to my spine and muscles is frightening. And my hands and arms get numb when I lay on my side and my breasts hurt and I hate sleeping on my back but I have to. The worst part is I have been divorced for 7 years, I have since remarried and my new husband doesnt even know I have implants because my look natural and feel soft. I wasnt hurting when I met him and he is delighted with my chest. I wish I had known this when I was younger, I might of gotten smaller ones or just gotten a good lift. I am so miserable now but feel slightly better knowing I am not alone and I might find answers. Pray that I get this weight off!!

    Hi C,

    It’s been many years since this post first went up. We’re currently working on a short workout that may help out. In the meantime, even doing something as simple as the workout in the Sitting Solution may be helpful.

C. B. A. - November 1, 2016

I had implants 18 months ago. 415cc i think it was. Ever since, my neck and shoulders have been very stiff and uncomfortable, especially first thing in the morning. This often causes headaches. Iv had to adjust my sleeping position, i now sleep on my back (which I dont enjoy and just cant seem to get used to) , I also try to not use my phone as much and especially ehilst laying in bed. These 2 things have some what helped but the pain discomfort never completely goes. I hate taking pain killers but sometimes get so frustrated that I give in. Ibuprofen works well. Even using a handbag has become too much. I see a chiropractor monthly, sometimes fortnightly and the pain eases for about a week, but ALWAYS comes back. My health fund only cover 1/3 of the fee so its becoming too expensive!

Reading the above results made me cry as it made me realise that this pain wont go away. I thought giving it a bit more time would. I absolutely love my impants, they balance out my look so well and i have large hips and ky self confidence has shot through the roof. Breast feeding killed my breasts and i was basically left with nothing but saggy skin after, i cant bare the thought of going back to that if i get these removed. Its gotta be so hard going back. But is this pain worth it? Looking and feeling great and empowered with them, feeling ugly and depressed but pain free without them???

I do yoga but i plan to really step it up this year in hopes it will strengthen me and ease the stiffness.

    Matt Hsu - November 1, 2016

    Hi CBA,

    You may want to check out the Shoulder Fix program. We just recently put it out to help people restore proper shoulder position. Doing this kind of training is often EXTREMELY helpful for reducing neck, shoulder, and chest discomfort.

    Yoga could actually make things worse because the muscles upper body muscles that get trained in Yoga drag the shoulders further into a position that results in more discomfort.

C. B. A. - November 1, 2016

I forgot to mention I am 30 years old
