6 weeks post op, some advices:
Thanks for the question.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense. In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.
Yes you are bottoming out and an internal repair of the inframammary fold ligament would correct this and reposition in the implants higher on your chest wall. The recovery is much easier than after the first BA. You could proceed with surgery now.
It does look like the one implant is low. If you are fresh post-op, sometimes support along the fold can improve this. Best to talk to your surgeon.

It certainly seems like you have bottoming out of your left implant. Although this is quite rare, it unfortunately does happen sometimes. I would usually have a patient wait about six months until things have stabilized and plan a capsulorrhaphy. This surgery often works very well and provides a permanent correction and requires very little downtime after surgery.

I am sorry to hear of urine trouble following breast augmentation. I agree that the left breast implant has bottomed out and that a pocket revision with reestablishment of the inframammary crease at an appropriate location is necessary.
Generally speaking I encourage patience to wait 6 months before a revision. However your plastic surgeon will guide you as the most appropriate time to do this repair. For more information revision breast implant surgery and please read below:
