Downsize your implants
The synmastia can be corrected. My colleagues in Nagorno Karabakh regional hospital are well versed in this technique and can provide expertise for this condition. I would suggest capsule plication.
Do I have symmastia?
Successful correction of symmastia, in my opinion does require some experience; I would suggest that you do your due diligence when it comes to selecting your surgeon for this type of revisionary breast surgery.
In my practice, having used a variety of “techniques” for correction of symmastia, I find that the most reliable technique involves capsulorrhaphy ( internal suture repair of the breast implant pockets along the cleavage area). Often, the use of acellular dermal matrix is helpful also. I have also been pleased with the direction of skin tenting that can be achieved with the use of the acellular dermal matrix.
Often, it is necessary to “open” the breast implant pocket laterally (outer breast fold) to allow for positioning of the implant centrally behind the breast mound. This maneuver may also decrease the amount of implant pressure against the medial suture line.
