Another form of implant displacement, known as “bottoming out”, involves excessive downward movement of the implant.
Over time as implants settle, gravity takes its natural course. If the implants bottom out, it causes the nipple to appear higher on the breast – pointing up.
The larger the implant the heavier it is, and the more likely it is to sag or fall. It can occur immediately after surgery due to the integrity of your tissues, and can also occur over time (if you do not comply with post-operative instructions to support your implants most, or all, of the time).
If this occurs, in consultation with your surgeon, you may opt to have surgery to improve it.
