Deciding on Breast Augmentation Revision
The size of the implant is important when deciding what will look good but equally important is the width of your chest relative to the base width of the implant. This plus the distance from the nipple to the lower breast fold will determine where to place the cut in order to prevent the problem you are having. If a plastic surgeon is familiar with these concepts and you are willing to undergo another procedure the liklihood is that your issue can be corrected. You didn't mention what the pocket location was but in your case this will need to be above the muscle this time. Good luck!
Deciding on a Breast Augmentation Revision
Additional elective cosmetic #surgery is a personal choice. Your procedures should always be performed by a #PlasticSurgeon who is board-certified and has a great deal of experience specializing in cosmetic #surgery. You will then greatly improve your chances of getting the result you desire, and, without the need for a revision surgery. It is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision.
Breast implant revision
Based on your description, it sounds as if you have a "waterfall" or "snoopy" deformity where your native breast is falling off the bottom of your implant. I recommend that your correct this by performing a capsulotomy/capsulectomy inferiorly to allow the implants to "drop" and/or create a "dual plane" where the breast tissue is partially released from the pectoralis muscle. Your plastic surgeon should make the ultimate decision of what is the appropriate surgical plan for you. I am not sure what arrangement you and your surgeon made preoperatively regarding revision surgery, but I am sure that the vast majority of Plastic surgeons want to provide aesthetically pleasing results and will be willing to work with you on a revision if necessary. Hope that helps and Happy Holidays!!
