Implant position for revision
The bottoming out aspect would need to be evaluated as to cause and best method of correction. Usually tucking and controlling the inframammary crease level through an inframammary incision will solve it but some bottoming out is caused by too large an implant for the base width of the breast and grafts that substitute for capsule are needed to correct the problem along with a smaller diameter implant.
This is a good reason, for example, of why it is not wise to just pick and implant volume in cc's and try to make it work.
