Did my lift and augmentation go wrong? (Photo)

Mastopexy with augmentation results and issues
Thank you for this question and for posting your photographs. I understand that you have had a breast lift and augmentation procedure.
On perusing the photographs I appreciate that the breasts are still sitting low and the implant is higher up.
You are so called ' low breasted' making any lift procedure complicated to getting a satisfactory result.
I would wait for at least 6months before any revisional surgery otherwise there could be significant issues with the previous scarring.
Revisional surgery is not straightforward but will be necessary if this current result persists.
In the meantime please wear a sports bra and manage your scars intensively so as to give the best support possible.
I wish you luck in this journey to getting the desired result.

Thank you for submitting your pictures and sorry for your troubles. From observing your pictures, you appear to have severe ptosis (level 3) and capsule contracture at least on the left breast.
Your result is obviously unacceptable .
Did you do your due diligence before surgery ? Did you see similar cases to yours, in your surgeon's photo gallery ?
Even though you did not submit you pre operative pictures , I am convinced that your situation was quite challenging. Not all surgeons are able to handle such complex surgery in one setting.
You have to have a straight forward discussion with your surgeon about her ability to make it right. If you have your doubts, consult with other experienced board certified plastic surgeons who are very experienced with redo breasts augmentation with full lift. Make sure to check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery and validate the attractive results.
In addition to the redo full lift procedure , you will need also capsulotomy(scar release) or capsulectomy(scar excision) . 3 months after surgery is the earliest that I will operate on capsule contracture, due to the intense inflammatory process of the scar tissue. If you can wait longer(i know it's tough) , it will be helpful to your surgeon.
Best of luck,
Do I need a revision breast lift ?
Thank you for your question and photos. I agree with other reviewers, it's likely that you will need revision but I would wait 6 months from the original surgery to determine the extent of it.

Breast lift with implants
Thanks for your question and for the photos.
It is early to decide where your breasts will settle, but at 11 weeks it appears you may require a revision surgery. The nipple/areolar height is too low and the implants appear to be high with your breast tissue hanging over the implants. A physical exam is necessary to determine if this is the case. Pre-op photos would also aid in diagnosing what is going on.
Best of luck
