Fake look with round implants
Synmastia

I had a breast augmentation 1year ago (round implants, 275 cc, filled with responsive gel, dual plane type I). From the very beginning the implants looked too high and full in the upper pole, with the nipples slightly pointing downwards. My surgeon said that this situation would improve after some months, but after a year nothing has changed. What can be done to solve the problem?

Maybe to fix this opening the bottom of the capsule will have the implant drop down and improve the fake look.

I don't think you have symmastia. There are three most common reasons for the result you have; first you may have had a very short distance from the nipple to the breast fold, second you (more)

It is most likely that you have capsular contraction. At 1 year time the only solution is capsulotomy. Talk to your doctor about it or get a 2nd opinion. (more)
