Recent breast augmentation. Was 36b. Had 350cc mentor moderate plus profile filled to 400cc for L and R breasts. My experience has been very rollercoaster-like. Don't know if it is worth it yet.
The outcome, well.. the right breast is almost perfect BUT my left breast is less than perfect. A nightmare almost. I have ended up with a "double bubble" on the left. This was apparent immediately upon arriving home after surgery. My surgeon says that this is my natural anatomy and to deal with it basically. I'm sorry, but I did not have 2 boobs in 1 natuaraly.
He says that there is no surgical correction/intervention available to correct this. I actually feel like it was his surgical error! But, of course he denies any wrong doing and says it is just my anatomy. Which I don't understand, I didn't have sagging breasts pre op. I feel, well, that he positioned the implant too low on the left. It hangs below my natural breast tissue instead of filling into the breast. Yes, the bottom half of the implant hangs below my breast creating the double bubble look. Not the look I intended on, obviously. I just dont understand why he didn't raise the implant up higher before he closed me up and sent me home.
It was apparent during surgery that this had occured. I'm so angry, upset, sad, confused... Feel stuck because my surgeon says that there is nothing that can be done about this. To deal with it and wait six months to see if it will work itself out.
It's obvious that the left implant sits lower visually. And by his measurements too!!! L measured 7cm and R 6cm. According to another doc they are actually suppose to both be sitting at 5cm. So what in the world!! Dont know what to do... What do you do when your surgeon denies that there is anything wrong? Or that there is no correction available! I know there is corrective measures available. He could simply raise the left one higher.
I have no fullness on the top of my breasts. All my volume is in the underneaths. No cleavage. It is a nightmare! The right has a slight DB, but almost unnoticable (coincindentally that one is also 1cm higher). I can physically push the left one higher and everything seems to smoothe out and look normal.. more volume on the top and DB disappears! What do I do? Got a second opinion from his partner and of course he stook up for him. They basically ganged up on me and made me feel like I was seeing things.
He denies that the left is lower, although his own measurements showed that it is lower. Again... what to do? It would be different if he would just acknowledge that there is a problem and let us deal with it, but he acts like I am seeing things, although he says I have a DB... but that is my natural anatomy according to him.
