Help Please! - I need advice on breast augmentation revision.
Augmentation done 3 yrs ago (400cc, sub-gladular, cohesive gel, high profile) I'm unhappy w/results - unnatural shape, the implant creates a gap between chest wall & clothing - (see pic.) I want a natural slope to my breasts - am thinking - low profile, smaller implant? - would this correct my problem? Do I need sub-muscular placement as well? I'm 5' 3.5", 116 lb & workout - my natural breasts had a very teardrop shape. Loved my doctor but I did not make the right choice of profile & size.
Breast augmentation revision
The results of breast augmentation may not always be satisfactory to the patient, and revisional surgery may improve the appearance or shape of the breasts. Changing the position of the implant from subglandular (under the breast) to submuscular (under the pectoralis muscle), as well as the size and shape of the implant would contribute to a different appearance. There are numerous options and alternatives and making a decision as to what is best for you would require an in person consultation and physical examination.
Options to correct overly projecting or prominent upper breast implant
Certainly a low profile smaller implant in the existing plane could do it. However, under the muscle would markedly improve and diminish the projection of the upper pole
