Am I bottoming out?
Although it's really hard to know without any before photos, it looks as if you might be either bottoming out on the left side or experiencing some lower pole stretch. In my practice, I do fewer lollipop scars than I do the full anchor (with the incision underneath) because I personally think that the distance from the nipple to the fold should be shorter to create a more youthful appearance and because this type of lift seems to last much longer.
I would talk to your Plastic Surgeon and get their feedback!
I hope that helps and wish you the very best!

The result that you see is due to stretching of your skin from the weight of the implant.
If you want more upper pole fullness which I certainly understand a revision may be necessary.
Further lifting of the breast is possible but the use of a supportive sling of acellular dermis to help maintain a higher position for the breast implant should also be done if revision is decided upon.
Please consult your plastic surgeon and explain what you hope to achieve carefully. Even with the measures listed above there is the possibility that recurrent stretching of the breast and dropping of the implant may occur.
