Is it too late for a thong bra? My skin has raised between my boobs after my breast augmentation.
If, in the long-term, your breast implant positioning is a concern, I would recommend medial capsulorrhaphy for correction of implant mal-position.
In my practice, having used a variety of “techniques” for correction of implant displacement, I find that the most reliable technique involves a 2 layer capsulorrhaphy (internal suture repair of the breast implant pockets along the cleavage area). Often, the use of acellular dermal matrix is helpful also. I have also been pleased with the (at least partial) correction of skin tenting that can be achieved with the use of the acellular dermal matrix.
Often, it is necessary to “open” (reverse capsulotomy) the breast implant pocket laterally (outer breast fold) to allow for positioning of the implant centrally behind the breast mound. This maneuver may also decrease the amount of implant pressure against the medial suture line. I also find that careful attention to postoperative activity restrictions is key to success with this type of surgery and other types of implant malposition revisionary breast surgery.I hope this and the link/video below are helpful.

550 cc breast implants and problems.
A cup receiving very large implants.
Your implants appear to be subglandular and if smaller implants are placed subpectorally you have a good chance of a more natural appearance.
Discuss options with your surgeon or another ABPS Bd Certified surgeon. Best wishes.
