Strattice for bottoming out and capsular contacture
Each revision surgery gets more complicated, especially when there has been capsular contracture plus other problems such as bottoming out. Strattice is a unifying solution that can reduce the chances of recurrent capsular contracture, support the breast when the implant has dropped, and add coverage which may be thinned as a result of capsulectomy.

Although an exam would be necessary, from your description, a Strattice sling to maintain position, reduce rippling, and reduce capsular contracture rate may be a very good option. Find a plastic surgeon who wrote the chapter on breast augmentation revision with Strattice with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast augmentations and breast augmentation revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
