Attaining a natural appearing breast augmentation with subfascial placement
unfortunately your results are very typical results in breast augmentation with high profile implants in the dual-plane submuscular position. This is why I never use high profile implants and never use the pectoralis major muscle. I use a technique called cold-subfascial breast aumentation that allows me to use the strong layer just above the muscle to deliver very natural results. I also see many patients like you who are unhappy with the results of under the muscle breast augmentations for similar reasons and convert them to cold-subfascial. The reality is that most breast augmentations are done the way yours were and most have some of the features that bother you but most women accept this. I find it unacceptable and that is why I do things differently. If you wanted correction I would advise a lower profile anatomically shaped "gummy bear: implant in a subfascial plane. I hope this helps!
All the best,
