Redo breasts augmentation
Thanks for submitting your pictures. From observing your pictures, you appear to have bilateral double bubble (right side worse than left side) as well as upper and medial poles capsule contracture.
To obtain optimal and natural looking breasts, you will need to have inferior capsulorraphy (internal bra) and medial and superior capsulotomy (scar release) . That will result in natural looking soft breasts with nice cleavage and lower fold
Always consult with experience board certified plastic surgeons who do lots of redo breasts augmentation in accredited surgery center for your safety. Check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and naturally attractive with nice IMF (infra mammary fold) and cleavage.
Best of luck,
One implant harder
Hi, usually by 4-5 months postop the implants have softened quite a bit. If you feel more firmness and see a contour irregularity, it might be worthwhile discussing this with your PS.
Revision breast implants
Without seeing your preop photos and only seeing your postop photos I can make comments about what revision will be necessary. The right side will need some type of correction of a bottomed out implant. Depending on the weight of the implant and the thickness of your tissues, you may want to consider adding Strattice as an insurance policy that this doesn't happen again. The left side, which is hard, will need a partial if not full removal of the capsule "capsulectomy". I would recommend going back to your operating surgeon to discuss.

I appreciate your question.
From your photos, it appears you have a double bubble on both sides and may also have capsular contracture. I would recommend that you contact your plastic surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time. You should also discuss your goals and expectations for revision surgery.
The best way to assess and give
true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified
plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
Based solely on your photos and description, it sounds as if you are going to need revision surgery. You have a double bubble on both sides and it sounds as if you might have capsular contracture. Schedule an appointment with your surgeon so that you can be assessed in person. Best, Dr. Nazarian
Each breast might feel a bit differently with implants. I would recommend trying to fix the double bubble issue. Best of luck.
Hardness after breast augmentation
Hello dear, thanks for your post and provided informationand pictures as well.
to early to worry about this, you are only 2 weeks post op, is normal
to feel this way, breast sides heals different and that's why you are
feeling that one is more tender and hard that the other one. Patience is
one of the most important factors in achieving the best results in
cosmetic surgery. We all want to see the final result as early as
possible. Unfortunately, the healing process is complicated and takes
time. You cannot fight Mother Nature. The surest way to get a poor
result is to undergo revision surgery before your body is ready for
breast augmentations take about six months
for the swelling to go down and the breasts to settle and assume their
final size and shape.
Please wait until six months post op. Minor asymmetry is normal.
Good luck :)
Is this normal for one breast to be little hard than the other one?

Breast implant surgery
First of all congratulations on getting a breast augmentation and your recovery. You have double bubbles on both sides and asymmetry between the two. It's possible you could have capsular contraction in the left. The best thing to do is follow up with your breast surgeon and see if you have capsular contraction. If so start promptly on medical treatments. Best wishes
Double bubble after breast augmentation
Reviewing yourpictures, I think it is definitely reasonable for you to consider a revision. Firstly, you describe symptoms of what very well may be a capsular contracture. While in itself, this is not dangerous in any way, if it causes a noticeable difference in softness between the breasts, if your breast is firm and unnatural, if this bothers ypu, then you should have it addressed. Not only may it continue to get worse, but a surgical procedure can allow a surgeon to remove and transect that scar and make things soft again. In regards to your double bubble, I think things can be improved significantly. Not only does the double bubble cast shadow to make things noticeable, but it appears that the implants have drifted down slightly which has placed the nipples and a spot on the breast which is a bit too high. The nipple should never be any higher than the spot on the breast mound which is at the dead center. I think a surgery in which the breast fold is tacked back down to push the implant up higher can treat not only the dropping of the breast, but the double bubble as well. One would probably need to disconnect the attachments from the old fold which is causing the bubble to the underlying tissues. All of these things need to be done by a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast surgery. Your first step is an examination with either your prior surgeon, or a second opinion. I hope this helps.
Best of luck!
