Did my doctor put too heavy of implants in? Or too big of a pocket? (photo)

350 cc implants after 1 year
Your doctor did nothing wrong...
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately breast tissue and skin do stretch over time, with weight. Everyone experiences this differently. You may want to consider a breast lift procedure to reposition your areolas and achieve a more perky look/ I recommend that you discuss your concerns in person with your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best

I'm sorry you're not happy with your long term result. Did you like your breasts appearance at first? One of the problems with breast augmentation is that the implants will cause the native breast tissue to stretch to accommodate them. So with time, tissues can relax and spread. Every individual is different - so some people's tissue will spread and relax more than others'. Either way - it is unlikely to be a problem with the pocket or the implant choice. Did you choose the size with your doctor? I also wonder if you have gained any weight? That can also cause a significant increase in the weight of your breasts. This issue usually arises over many years, not one. I frequently remove breast implants for women who have aged and/or gained weight after augmentation and feel the same way. Because of the tissue stretch caused by the implants most women choose to have a lift at the time of their implant removal.
Sorry there isn't an easy answer. And best of luck.
