For women who have just had a breast lift with implants, although the results are not desirable, a breast lift implant revision may be necessary. A poorly performed breast lift implant can result in the breasts bottoming out. If your breasts are bottoming out, this is due to a few different reasons.
The first of these reasons is improper stitching of the ligament of the inframammary crease when insetting everything. Bottoming out also occurs when there is a lower pole left, and the other reason can be actually due to your own skin. This also occurs as the inferior breast pole was incet and made tighter than normal, so the result is bottomed out.
If it is your own skin, then you can know as it would lead to symmetric bottoming out. If what you see can be described as asymmetric bottoming out, this is a technical error and the surgeon did not properly reinforce the inframammary crease with the proper stitching.
A breast lift implant revision is used to redo a breast lift and correct the asymmetry and ptosis that results over time after a previous breast lift with implant procedure. You may be recommended to have a breast lift revision to correct asymmetry and ptosis of the breasts.
The way to correct this asymmetry is to optimally secure the inframammary crease ligament. The nipple to crease distance is made even and a snoopy head will be avoided.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Arian Mowlavi at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute often revises previous breast lift with implant patients. Dr. Mowlavi’s breast lift implant revisions are popular as he understands the anatomy and aesthetics of the breast, delivering the results you should have received the first time around.
