Limiting breast scars in breast lift, breast augmentation
The donut breast lift operation only lifts the nipple 1-2cm. It is apparent from your photos that a much greater lift was needed. The implants will descend somewhat from their current position, but will not likely ever be centered behind the nipples. Sometimes in an effort to minimize the scarring on the breast, whether by patient request or surgeon desire, the procedure falls short of obtaining a good lift. Good luck!
Breast Implants - droopy results
The answer is related to the droop your breast had prior to surgery and the size of implant chosen. In my practice I warn patients who have elements of "sagginess" the risk of a requiring a breast lift to have their implant appearing centered on their breast. We carefully chose the implant and the operation (including the lift) to minimize disappointment in the outcome OR we purposely delay the decision on the lift until about 6 to 9 months fully knowing it will take that long to fully settle. Best Wishes!!
A doughnut mastopexy is not a good operation for true ptosis of the breast.
