Pictures of Stretch Marks After Breast Implants

Breast implants can cause stretch marks. In most cases though, the stretch marks are already there. These types of marks may have occurred during breast development, weight gains, or pregnancies. After a period of time the marks will fade. When the breast implants are placed, the stretch marks can be aggravated and become red again. They may even widen. Just like naturally occurring stretch marks, these new ones or aggravated marks will fade over time.
