What should I do about my breast falling down in my armpit?
Generally, the lateral breast implant displacement can be corrected using an internal suture technique, decreasing the size of the pockets and moving the implants toward the midline. In my practice, I use a 2 layered suture technique to close off the space laterally (towards the axilla). The use of acellular dermal matrix is an option ( although not usually necessary) especially if significant implant rippling/palpability is present.
I hope this, and the attached link (dedicated to this type of revisionary breast surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.
You should probably wait before rushing into another surgery. If you had a revision, the surgeon may need to do some suturing or other techniques to restrict the motion of that implant. For the time being, taping the breast in place or sleeping in a well fitted bra may help keep the implant in the right position and correct some of the deformity.
Lateral Breast Implant Displacement
Thank you for your question and photos. You will likely need a pocket revision to correct the lateral displacement however I would also advise waiting at least a few more months to ensure that you are completely healed before undergoing additional surgery. In the meantime you could talk to your surgeon about wearing a support bra at night.
All the best
