Bottomed Out, Twice - Kansas City, KS

I had a breast lift with saline implant placement...

I had a breast lift with saline implant placement under the muscle in 2014. The doctor seemed very knowledgeable, but I seriously regret ever getting any plastic surgery at all. I started to notice bottoming out about 3 months post op but was told that it was basically all in my head. At about 6 months post op I could literally grab my implant in my lower pole so at this point I went back and was extremely unhappy and very uncomfortable. I could not wear a bra because my nipples hung out the top of any bra I wore no matter how much I sized up. My skin was so thin. My PS said that he recommended a second lift and that it would fix it with no issue. The day of my surgery he had me sign additional paperwork than my first visit about me not taking legal action basically. I was there a week before and he had the opportunity to give it to me then and didn't. So this was a huge red flag. I had my second lift in 2015 and the results are way worse. He basically put me under the knife, pulled everything together and threw random stitches in it. It looks awful and has seriously effected my relationship with my husband as well as diminished my self confidence. Not to mention I have shooting pains and can't work out like I used to without pain. I have gained 20lbs since my lift 1 year ago. I would give anything to have my natural breasts back with no scars or pain. It is not worth it and the results obviously vary and aren't guaranteed. I have emailed several other plastic surgeon and while my PS is till claiming it is all basically my fault because my skin is to blame, all of the other PS's have all agreed that he over dissected the pockets. I can handle that people make mistakes and result do vary, but I have when mistakes can't be owned up to and the lack of compassion that he has to make it right. I am now searching for a PS to get me out of pain and to end my embarrassment. I need a revision to look "normal" again. I am 25, do not have any children and do not smoke and have no medical conditions. I was not at risk at all and still ended up with awful results. My husband and I have been looking forward to starting a family but I cant stand the thought of attempting to breast feed with my nipples on top of my boob, not in great placement for my baby, sharing this with the nurses or worse finding out that I am so botched that I cannot breast feed. Any opinions are welcome.

Seemed to know what he was doing but my results seem to point otherwise.
