Vertical Breast Lifts
You may have some scar spread, but this doesn't look like true separation. As for your result, the excess skin at the bottom of the vertical scar is very common when surgeons choose this 'only vertical scar' lift. This droopy appearance can be fixed with a horizontal excision of skin, which will leave you with a relatively short horizontal scar.
I think that it is important that you address this because your nipples are already on the high side of normal, and this will only get worse as the implant settles further down into the excess tissue pocket.
Best of luck.
