7 Weeks Post Op. Bottoming Out? (photo)

I had 325cc saline implants done on February 25th. My left breast has seemed larger within a few weeks fallowing my surgery. When brought to my surgeons attention he said they looked good an noone else but me would notice, I disagree. But now I wonder if my left breast is bottoming out? When looking at the top it seems to be way lower then my right and I still have pain on that side at times.

I tell everyone that if they are asymmetric going in 100% will be asymmetric coming out, take a look at some pre-op pics it may be that the breast was lower than the other. That being said if at 6 months there is actual evidence of bottoming out I am sure your surgeon will fix it!

Your pictures are not showing bottoming out

You have great results based on your pictures. Your nipple position and breast shape are good. You have very thin breast tissue over the implant and that is something that can not be corrected by implants. Breast always look bigger after surgery due to the swelling.Would you please explain what you do not like about your breast and your before pictures would be helpful.

7 Weeks Post Op. Bottoming Out?

Photos are very helpful, but they are only 2-dimensional. On the front view the right implant looks a bit lower, but no moreso than is the shoulder.

I see no evidence of bottoming out on either side view, and the implants look quite even to be on these views. All the best.
