I am now one year post operation and my breast are bottom heavy. I have been having problems with my nipples popping out of my bras, my scars show, and there isn't a crease or natural sag in my breast. Is this normal? What is going on and what would be the best solution to these issues. Every photo I have seen of breast augmentations show the nipple lower, the scars hidden, and there is a natural sag. I don't even have one and it has been a year now. Please help.

Implants bottoming out
Bottomed out implants
Your breast implants have bottomed out a bit. This can happen especially with the bigger heavier implants often used these days. Either leave it alone or seek a revision in which the pocket is repaired. This can be done with stitches or in some cases with a material called Strattice which is pig skin without any cells in it.
As for "natural sag" I don't really know what you mean by that.
