Revision breast augmentation with “double bubble'”

+1
  The so called “double bubble” deformity occurs when the breast implant and your own native breast tissue are not ”in synch”.  Typically it occurs when the implant is located below the lower boundary of your own breast, but from your description it seems that your implants are actually placed above the level of your innate inframammary fold.    Revision breast surgery, especially when exchanging from under the breast to under the muscle, requires specific techniques to avoid the problem that you have described.  When properly executed  (with correct implant selection, proper creation of the new pocket, use of tissue matrix, etc.) the result of revision breast augmentation should be quite predictable and satisfying.

Without seeing what is going on, it is difficult to say.  But if the implant diameter appears larger than the breasts and it looks like two breasts, then you probably will need a revision.
