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.

Q: Asymmetry After 300cc Mentor High Profile Silicone Under the Muscle Breast Augmentation?

I got 300cc Mentor high profile silicone under the muscle implants n am 17 days post-op.been wearing the surgical bra w/band 24/7,massaging them,n yet they are completely asymmetrical and the left one is super high up.

Ive asked my doctor countless times but she says nothing is wrong and it'll take another couple months til they look "normal". I had NO asymmetry pre-op. I have no pain (a bit sore still). Am I being paranoid or is she wrong? How long will it take for it to drop? What can I do?

 

A: Be patient

Young patients have tight tissues that may compress the implant superior. This is often made worse by the early surgical swelling. This should improve progressively with a plateau 3-6 months later. If residuals exist, then revision can be contemplated. You will be amazed at how things evolve. Avoid uplift support bras for a full 6 weeks.
