Either way, this may stretch out with time, and from the photo it looks like surgery was pretty recent.
Stay in touch with your surgeon for regular follow up.
All the best.
Am I getting double bubble? (Photo)
The folds under your breast I think represent the old fold beneath your breasts.
In patients who have had slightly high folds naturally, often the incision is dropped so that they lie in the fold under your breast.
I think what we are seeing in your case is the remnants of the old fold showing through.
I think it would certainly be sensible to go and see your surgeon to discuss the options for treating this area, particularly if it does worsen slightly with time.
Many thanks again for sharing your photographs with us, I hope the area resolves satisfactorily.

Double Bubble after Breast Augmentation
It appears that you have a very mild version of 'double bubble' shape after breast augmentation. This is caused by the attachments of the lower edge of the breast gland to the skin.
It appears that your surgery was relatively recent, so it is reasonable to expect that this will improve with time. The pressure of the implant behind the breast gland and skin will help this shape loosen up. Massaging the area will also help the fascial attachments relax.
Good luck with managing this.
