Revision / Internal Bra / Synmastia and Bottoming Out Repair
I perform 400-500 augmentations a year, half of which are revisions, and about 70% of my patients are from out of state or overseas. When it comes to correcting synmastia and bottoming out, I believe it is critical to find a specialist in revisions. I suggest you email several of the better known revision specialists, send your photos and all pertinent information, and see what they say. Then you can narrow your list down to those who give you the most confidence that they can fix your problems.
My approach has been to use the Internal Bra, my strong permanent internal suturing technique which corrects the synmastia and bottoming out, and provides long term support for your implants. It works and it lasts.
I have attached a link to my Internal Bra / Bottoming Out / Synmastia photo gallery for your review- hope it helps!

Breast revision surgery
Sorry to hear about your bad experience. At This point you need to be seen by a plastic surgeon that specializes in revision breast implant surgery. Breast reconstruction (after cancer)surgeons usually do not have that experience.

Breast implant revisions.
I am sorry to hear that you have experienced complications. After two prior surgeries and continued problems I think it is very important to visit with a plastic surgeon with specific ability in revision breast surgery. I would advise you to make sure that your surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.
In my practice I often perform multiple revision surgeries from patients that are out of state or have an unsatisfactory reconstruction after cancer. There are many solutions to different problems which include the use of dermal matrices to reinforce weak spots, suture techniques, fat grafting and the use of anatomic and textured implants. I would encourage you to seek a breast augmentation specialist that has experience with multiple techniques which may apply to your specific situation.

I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons.
Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done. Ultimately, you will need to feel comfortable that your chosen plastic surgeon has the experience and ability to achieve the outcome you will be pleased with.
Be very careful with your decision-making. You will find, while doing your due diligence, that there are many different “specialties” who will offer their services to you; again, I strongly recommend you concentrate on surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Breast Implant Revision
I'm sorry to hear of your concerns.
Synmastia and bottoming out are situations that most experienced plastic surgeons can deal with effectively. I do believe experience in breast reconstruction helps me offer the most advanced techniques for revision breast augmentation cases.
SERI is a new material that can be very beneficial in cases like yours. It functions as an internal support for the implants to maintain the correct position for the implants. This could be beneficial for both your bottoming out and synmastia.
There are many surgeons in the New York city area. I would seek an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.
