Why does my right breast sits higher after augmentation, specially when I raise my arms? (Photo)

Asymmetry post sub glandular breast augmentation
Your sub glandular (SG) gel implants appear to be developing a contracture of the inferior portion of the scar capsule which results in displacing the right implant superiorly. This happens more often when the implants are placed in the SG position versus the sub muscular (SM) position.
This is fixable but it may be suggested to move the implants to the SM position. Discuss this with your surgeon but I would also get a second opinion and make sure that he/she is an Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, a board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialites (ABMS).
Implants asymmetric a year after surgery
- Your implant is rising because of muscle pressure on the lower R implant or because of a capsular contracture.
- It looks slightly rounded - consistent with a contracture.
- Get a second opinion from another Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Breast asymmetry will persist after standard augmentation but may be diluted because of additional volume.
