What's Wrong With Hayden's Breast Implants?

There is a lot of buzz lately surrounding the bust size of 23-year-old Hayden Panettiere. After bikini photos of the young starlet surfaced this spring, many believe she has undergone a breast augmentation due to the fact that there is a noticeable rippling of tissue around her chest.

"As a plastic surgeon, it is obvious to me that she most likely has saline implants that are placed too close to the midline of her sternum," says Beverly Hills, CA, plastic surgeon Leslie H. Stevens, MD. So why does this rippling occur? "The surgeon cut through the pectoral muscle leaving the implants directly under the skin with less soft tissue coverage to soften the wrinkling," he says.

And unfortunately for Hayden, this problem won't go away says Miami plastic surgeon Sean Simon, MD. To fix it, "she may need revision breast surgery to change both the implants themselves (to silicone) and reposition the new implants into the sub-muscular position," he says. "This can all be done through a small incision on the breast on the inferior aspect of the areola." Dr. Stevens adds that the sooner she revises them, the better as the rippling "may even worsen over time."

    Also, the wrinkles don't go from side to side (towards her left breast). The wrinkles are straight up and down on the inside of her breast. That's why it's obvious she's had implants and why it looks weird.

    Yes, there is something wrong with her right breast implant-mid chest. This picture doesn't show it very well but there is another one that is a close up of her with the same bikini top and she has a bunch of wrinkles in her skin on her right breast as it curves up from the middle of her chest. It's just on the right side and it looks terrible.

    I had implants years ago, saline. Had some rippling, just massaged them more, rippling went away. Best decision ever.

    I had saline and the same type of rippling. I had them replaced with silicone but it did not lessen the rippling at all. Breast implants were the worst decision ever.

    She's just overweight. She would look a lot better if she lost 15 pounds.

    She just needs to adjust a few things. They don't look that bad at all.

    I don't think she has implants, I think she just has one of those weird atheltic chests. And maybe her weight goes up and down which makes the skin not look too perfect. Why would a celebrity settle for saline implants.

    Yes, rippling is a problem, particularly with saline implants that are not filled to the correct level. Placement is important. Also rippling can be a problem for thin women when implants are placed over the pectoral muscle rather than under it. But I have to agree with the two comments above, she looks lovely!

    I don't think there is something wrong with Hayden's breast implants. Her boobs look fantastic and sexy, in my opinion. To have bigger and more attractive breasts, I'll also get breast augmentation by Dr. Jerome Edelstein next week. My surgeon is very talented and skilled and I'm sure I'll achieve great results. I can't wait to turn heads at the beach and be admired for my improved body contour! :P
