Bottoming Up Blog Image

Are you feeling a little “low” about your breast implants? You may be experiencing a complication known as “bottoming out.”

So, what exactly is bottoming out? It’s when your breast implant drops lower on your chest than it should, giving your breast a saggy or “deflated” appearance. It’s like when you put too much air in a balloon, and it pops out the bottom. The same thing can happen to your breast implants.

Symptoms of bottoming out include:

  • A breast that appears too low on the chest.
  • A nipple pointing downward instead of straight ahead.
  • A breast that looks “empty” at the top, but fuller at the bottom.
  • A breast that has an unnatural shape.
  • If only one breast is affected, it will be sitting lower than the other.

But don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world! With the help of a skilled cosmetic doctor, bottoming out can often be corrected through revision surgery. This may involve repositioning, reinforcing, or switching the type of implant used.

But how can you prevent bottoming out in the first place?
Here are a few tips:

  • Choose an experienced cosmetic doctor.
  • Ask about the type of implant used. Some have less chance of bottoming out.
  • Follow post-operative instructions.
  • Avoid smoking, as it slows down healing and causes the skin to lose elasticity.
  • Be mindful of your posture and movements after the surgery.
