Falling implant after one revision attempt?

I am sorry to hear about your concerns after revisionary breast surgery. Your plastic surgeon may have advise regarding supportive garments/bra and/or restriction of activities on the side of the repair.  Unfortunately, if the breast implant continues to displace additional revisionary surgery will likely involve and capsulorraphy and/or additional mastopexy revision.   Sometimes, especially in cases of recurrent implant displacement, use of additional supportive materials such as dermal matrix or biosynthetic mesh may be helpful. Best wishes.
