Breast augmentation - do I have the dreaded double-bubble
- Your left side strongly suggests that you have a double bubble.
- this is very hard to live with, in my opinion.
- I would revise this on any woman after six weeks -
- In part because with a double bubble, the implant usually keeps on moving down, further and further -
- No a good look to say the least.
- Most surgeons would be as distressed as you are (every surgeon has occasional complications and disappointing results), and I hope yours agrees to take care of this for you promptly.
- If not - or if he dismisses your concerns - start looking for a new plastic surgeon and take your time finding the right one for you.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Based on your current appearance, you had some asymmetry to your breasts in size, shape, and position of your original inframammary fold. It appears that you would have benefited from the use of smaller implants and a breast lift to achieve a less dramatic, but ultimately prettier augmentation.
Your problem requires a revision surgery and I recommend you go on a few second opinion consultations with experts in revision surgery.
Best of luck.
Is this double bubble?
The “double bubble” appearance that you are noticing is related to the breast implants that are inferiorly position. If this remains a concern in the longer term, repair is possible using internal sutures (capsulorraphy). This procedure will serve to reconstruct the inframammary fold area, correcting the implant malposition and improving the contour (double bubble effect).
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.
