Q: Bottoming Out After Breast Augmentation

Three Weeks Post-op BA and BL, Bottoming out in Right Breast? I had 300 cc silicone moderate profile smooth round implants. I was 32A and wanted to achieve 32B, a natural look. I am starting to worry that my nipples might be too high and the right breast is starting to bottom out?

A: Appear to have had vertical mastopexy

Based on your photos it appears that you had a vertical mastopexy with implants. Such mastopexies often appear long in the vertical inferior pole. That should not be confused with implant descent and bottoming out. Give it time to settle. When the scars are soft a minor revision of the inferior pole of the vertical scar might be warranted.
