Bottoming out breast implant? Almost 1yr post op.
Bottoming out after Breast Augmentation
Thanks for your question! Based upon your photos, I'd say that you largely have a great result one year out, and you need to carefully weigh the pros and cons of going back in for a revision. That being said, you might have a slight amount of bottoming out on your right. Not sure if it's worth the risk of additional surgery yet though. I do hundreds of breast augmentations and revisions per year, and I'm in you area in LBK if you need any help. Best of luck to ya!
