Often patients suffer from excessive muscle animation deformity after a mastectomy. Normal daily motion and activity can cause wrinkling and discomfort in the chest area. This is caused from placing implants under the muscle with no breast tissue between the muscle and the skin.
Using the Advanced Technique Muscle Animation Repair, or ATMAR, we are able to restore the chest muscles and improve the outcomes for many women following mastectomy and reconstruction.
The doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery consider various factors, including type of mastectomy, cancer treatments, and patient body type when deciding on the technique that will give you the best results.
During your consultation, your doctor will discuss whether or not muscle animation is the best option for you.
This technique is used for:
Finding the right plastic surgeon for your muscle animation procedure is critical. Our doctors have decades of experience making each and every patient feel beautiful and confident with the latest, most innovative practices.

“I have had 3 procedures (filler, tummy tuck, and thigh lift) performed by Dr. Bruno, and I have been more than satisfied each time. In fact, I’m in the process of scheduling a breast augmentation. Dr. Bruno is patient, hands-on, easy to talk to, and very responsive. His patient coordinator, Lori, is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and professional.”— KR
“I am so grateful that I was recommended Dr. Brown by my Ob/Gyn for my tummy tuck and he was also recommended for facial plastic surgery by one of New York’s most prominent plastic surgeons who I saw in the past when I lived there. Dr. Brown is the most kind, approachable and skilled doctor I’ve ever been under the care of. And I couldn’t be happier with the results.”— Nicole
