Not bottoming out on photos
There is no evidence of bottoming out on your photos. It is normal for the lower edge of the implant to be more palpable as the thinner breast tissue provide less coverage over the implant.
No sign of bottoming out.
From you photos, I do not believe you are "bottoming out." Rather, the fold is indistinct and you are quite tight in the lower pole. This should relax over time in response to the weight of the implants. Continued massage and time will improve your overall result.
Know it is natural to feel saline implants and you are big and this happens.Your discomfort should go away with time.
Bottoming out post augmentation
I do not feel that you are bottoming out but, I feel you have lost the fold definition.
If you place your hand an inch below the fold paralleling the fold and push that skin in an upward direction
it should help you to appreciate more fold definition. If my suggestion is more pleasing than I would discuss with your doctor the possibility of resetting the fold.
looks like a nice result to me. yes you will see some implant when you raise your arms that is normal. the breast will move up but the implant will stay put under the muscle.
Bottoming out- can it be detected early?
"Bottoming out" describes a breast in which the implant drops below the inframammary fold, or in a reduction, when the skin and breast tissue drop significantly below the fold.
Your photos show very nice early results. The implants are above the fold and not too low. Continue gentle circular massage. Swelling will continue to reduce in the next month or too, and the implants will settle more into their pockets.
Breast implants bottoming out?
I don't see any evidence for bottoming out with either breast implant. There is a tendency for you to feel some soreness to the bottom of each breast along the inframammary fold because the implants are rather large and th distance below the lower breast fold needed to be stretched to initially place these implants below the muscle . Follow up with your local Plastic Surgeon if you have any questions about this.

Breast Implants bottoming out
At the present time, I do not think they are bottoming out. It is normal to feel the implant at the inferior most border without it being bottomed out. I would go see your surgeon for your routine follow ups in order to allay any fears or concerns you might have though.
