Are my breasts 'bottoming out'? (photo)
Doctor Answers 2
Looks like a double bubble deformity. This can most often be corrected with great results, but unfortunately it requires surgery.A smaller implant and revision of the lower pole of the breast is often needed. Textured implants or shaped implants can sometimes have a benefit as well. Discuss your concerns with your doctor and best of luck.
Are my breasts 'bottoming out'?
This procedure serves to reconstruct the lower poles of the breasts and prevent migration of the breast implants too far inferiorly. Sometimes, depending on factors such as quality of skin along the lower breast poles, additional support provided by acellular dermal matrix or biosynthetic mesh may be very helpful. I have also found the use of acellular dermal matrix very helpful in cases where the skin/tissues are very thin and in cases of recurrent breast implant displacement. The acellular dermal matrix helps improve contour, improves irregularities caused by the underlying breast implant and/or scar tissue, and provides additional support ("sling" effect) for the breast implants. I hope this, and the attached link, helps. Best wishes.
