Many women consider the scarring from a breast lift to be a serious drawback

Unfortunately not all breast augmentation procedures have good turnouts. When combined with mastopexy many women consider the scarring from a breast lift to be a serious drawback to the procedure. Keyhole leave what is known as a "lollipop" scar, while a full mastopexy leaved an "anchor shaped" scar. It is difficult to help without an examination or seeing any photos. I suggest that you consult your plastic surgeon.

Your surgery sounds extremely complicated. Skin grafts are not very commonly used and so it may be best to schedule an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon

Unfavorable breast outcome

It is hard to say what is going on without at least seeing photos or examining you.  I do not know what you mean by a skin graft on the lower region.
