Are my Implants Bottoming Out? (Dual Plane (Partial Unders), Silicone Memory Gel)

Pros: Love big boobs

Why I did it: To get bigger boobs

Doctor: Currently witholding

This is a replacement implant for saline implants I had over the muscle. This current procedure also came with a mini lift therefore was reconstructive.

Do my implants look like they are bottoming out? They were implanted dual plane (partial unders), silicone memory gel, procedure done about 2 years ago. My nipples were set pretty high to begin with if I can remember...that stretchy distorted thing on the left breast is a ripple. Thank you.

I kinda' hate my boobs, I'm not a porn...

I kinda' hate my boobs, I'm not a porn star but I look like one walking around the streets everyday they look really fake and obnoxious. My doctor insisted high profile would fix the rippling problem and it has for the most part so I am happy with that. BUt I want them redone to look natural, I just want to look more natural that's all. I told my doctor over and over I wanted a natural slope but this is what he gave me. I guess he thinks this looks natural?

I personally think they look great. You did get a large implant but at least the nipples are perky (facing up) nothing is worse that torpedo boobs! Also, it all depends on your anatomy. How mch tissue you had to begin with, they thickness of your muscle, etc. If you had a b-cup or more to begin with as well as a thick chest wall, your implant will be better concealed and look more natural. You look great though, I love them!

So what did your doc say? Did you talk to your doc about bottoming out or to see if you are getting CC like a couple of the docs had mentioned in your question to them? I hope you find resolution soon. If your doc wont help you, I would see about getting a consultation with someone else and have them look at them and feel them in person. I know it's a horrible thing to go through~ Good luck!

Hey, wanted to give my 2 cents.
I agree that the nipples look a little high- but not too much. What I think is the most noticeable is that your right nipple is facing outward in the middle pic. That might have something to do with the pocket being made to far out to the side? You'd have to ask some docs what causes that. Also, I just wanted to say that the fact that he put the implants under the muscle is what i thought helps with the rippling.
Dual plane is also what i got and is supposed to look the most natural as when the implant is half under gives you that natural slope on top.
Oh, i just saw that you also got 520cc's. I agree with Kooberry, maybe you should go a little smaller too to help with the ripples and give a more natural look.

I dont know what you looked like pre-op, but maybe you could post this question to the docs on this forum to get a more professional opinion.

I like your look, I think they look great! but if you feel uncomfortable with them, I get why you'd want to change them. Good luck

wow that is so big. My PS explained to me in detail how extreme tissue stretching can cause lots of problems. Obviously your doctor gave you a size much larger than your tissue could handle. Hopefully he can fix this problem for you....good luck!!

Hello jenna~ The photo in the middle does look like you are bottoming out, nipples are very high. Have you seen your plastic surgeon to discuss a revision? Possibly he can do it for free or at a discounted price since he's the one who created this problem. I'm so sorry you are having a bad experience. I also had dual plane done with 304 cc's. Are yours HP and how many cc's? I hope your PS can offer a solution to make you feel better - Take Care!

I wrote an update but I don't know what happened to it. Well, anyway, I'm still bummed out about my boobs, they look ridiculous and are way too high and stick out too much and waaay too big for my frame. As you can see, I MUST have another revision adn that depresses me to no end. I don't know when I will ever get the money but I'm desperate.

Thanx for all your comments.

My apologies, however, I did note the OP's statement, "I'm not a porn star but I look like one walking around the streets everyday" and in light of said statement thought my comment was acceptable. I see the mods here and I take things a bit differently.

It sounds like the "porn star" comment was used to describe the look. I understand it is all about interpretation, but please remember public forums can be taken a number of ways. I appreciate your understanding and thank you for your cooperation.

I feel badly for you. They do look great, but I love the look of fake breasts (well, more than just the look). I guess you'll have to get a redo if you want natural. Personally I think "natural" looking implants look sort of meh.
