I am 4 weeks post breast augmentation. I have saline mod plus implants under the muscle. I was a 34B and went up to a 34C. Since day #1 my right implant has been lower. I can also feel where my breast tissue ends and the implant extends below it. I had a 2 week post op visit with my surgeon and he said it looked fine and will even out with time. It looks like he made the pocket too big on the right. It just doesn't look the same as the left. Recently I notice a band of connective tissue that runs from my areola to the inside of my right breast. I have been massaging like crazy...seems like all the time! The connective tissue (I guess that's what it is) is hard and you can see it when ever my muscle flexes. Not good when I have a low cut shirt on! I have not talked to my doctor about this. I have an appt in two weeks. Has any one else had any of these issues?

I nursed my son for 15 months and wanted to add the volume back to my breasts. I opted for saline moderate plus mentor implants. I went from a 34B to a 34C.

I feel like my right implant is bottomed out. I am 2 weeks post op. It has been this was since day one. I was a 34B and went to a 34C with a 325cc mod plus implant filled to 350 in the L and 360 on the R. I can feel the bottom of the saline implant and at an angle you can see where my breast tissue ends and the implants extends below it. Did my doctor make the pocket to low? Has my implant bottomed out? I have attached a picture of day one post and a current picture. Thank you.

Update 10/25/09

I am now 5 months post op. I went to my doctor last week and it is confirmed that both of my implants have bottomed out. I am getting a revision tomorrow am. I had my implants placed periareolar and they will use the same incision, one inside he said he will use a scope and place sutures to make a new fold. The sutures will take 3-4 months to dissolve and he said I may have some dimples under my breasts until they do. Thank the lord....I will not have to pay a cent, my MD is covering the anesthesia fees. I will put post op pics up.
