Breast are high but Breast tissue is low, what happened?
Hi Glitter,Thanks for your question and photos. It appears that your implants where placed under the muscle which made your breast actually drop more than if they were placed over the muscle. Not for sure unless and exam is done. But certainly a lift would make things look a lot better. You have grade III ptosis or breast droopiness based on your photos but again an exam would help figure that out better. The choice of lift depends on the surgeon and if want an implant size change. Get several opinions from board certified plastic surgeons. Good Luck!
All the best,

Far more important than the technique is the skill and experience of your plastic surgeon. Choose your surgeon rather than the technique and let them explain why one technique may be better than another.
See the below link on some suggestions on finding the most qualified Plastic Surgeon for a Breast Augmentation .It also depends on where the blood clot was. You should check with the surgeon of your choice.

Breast Implant Revision
Thank you for your question and photos. It appears that you may need a revision to allow the implants to drop lower and/or a breast lift procedure to elevate the position of your nipples. I recommend that you see your Plastic Surgeon in person so that they can examine you and discuss your goals.
All the best
Breast implants don't look right after 2 years
- Your photo is very helpful as is your description.
- Your implants have never settled in place so that are sitting above your breasts.
- You are right - you need to return to see your surgeon.
- You will need a revision to release the capsule around the implants so they can settle in place.
