Support and high profile implants sub muscular
Thanks for your question. You have a difficult problem, and I would go
back to your surgeon for a revision or seek a board certified plastic surgeon who does a lot of breast surgery. If you had longstanding large implants and a recent capsulectomy, it can lead to a typical scenario of a very thin lower pole that leads to ripples and bottoming out. You will probably need sub muscular implants with a neosubmuscular pocket and support with either a dermis product (alloderm/flex hd) or more recently a silk product (Seri). Both add cost to the revision but there is really no other good way to hold up the implants and thicken the lower Breast envelope. After years of implants, further revisions are more like reconstructive cases to obtain good results.
It will take a combination of techniques to allow you to achieve your vision.
A lot of things are possible.
