How to prevent further damage?

Breast implant bottoming out
I commend you for looking for a plastic surgeon closer to home to be evaluated. This is obviously the best way to determine if your implant truly is bottoming out and what if any intervention is warranted. If you originally had an incision underneath the breast and it is beginning to migrate up, that would be an indicator that your implant is indeed moving down. Any impact activity (running, jumping, etc) can put stress on the implant support and lead to further bottoming out over time. If the implant was placed underneath the muscle, an overly contractile pectorals muscle might also push the implant down. A supportive garment would certainly help matters. Hope this helps and that you are able to find a surgeon nearby who can assist further.
