Hi Dr! I am currently almost 3 months PO. Previously I was a deflated 34C, and I had 565 HP Sientra silicone unders. Since the day of surgery, my left has been lower. Now it looks so low that it’s creating a double bubble look. ......When I sent pics to my surgeon’s office, they said it was the breast falling into its new crease and not a double bubble. They said eventually the skin/fat would adjust and the trouble area would fade. I’m worried because the area that is ‘bubbling’ our below feels like the pectoral muscle and area on top of the bubble is more of my regular fat, so there is a clear difference when I’m standing still and when I’m moving. It just looks frightening to me. Any thoughts? Thank you!!!
It looks similar to what I had after my first surgery...it was determined to be an animation deformity, not really a double bubble. Pics are on my profile. The only fix was surgery unfortunately, and I opted to go over the muscle to ensure it couldn’t happen again. I would speak to your surgeon and ask about options! xoReply
Hi there! I think it's a double bubble. I doubt it gets better on its own. I am sorry to say that. I know you don't want to hear it. It's likely going to need to be fixed in the OR with some sutures and/or mesh to reinforce your inframammary fold. Essentially it looks like what has happened is your implant has moved down further than the fold and it won't just go back up. We never know exactly why. Sometimes implants just weigh it down too much and the tissue gives way. Sometimes the fold is inadvertently damaged during the initial surgery or the stitch to repair it (we go through it to put the implant there when we make inframammary incisions) gave way. Best of luck and sorry you have to go through this!
I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
