My implant feels like it is folded and coming through near my areola.

Replacing Ruptured Breast Implants
Thank you for your question. Without a face-to-face consultation it is impossible to give you anything more than generalities. You really need to discuss this with several board certified plastic surgeons who are well versed in revision breast surgery.
In short, I surmise that because of the implant rupture and having had to have it "scooped out", this removal of implant and scar tissue has left your breast quite thin making it easy to feel your implant. Also, if the pocket is not perfect, the implant will have a tendency to ripple and fold. There are several options that may be able to improve your situation including using an ADM membrane (like Alloderm) or a mesh (like Seri) to provide support and/or cover over your implant or implants of different profile/shape. Best wishes, this can be a difficult problem.
