I had a BA in July. I can see a line on my left breast that is the outline where my natural breast ends and the implant sits below. why?
Exilis

Is there a problem? they are totally submuscular, and i cannot see this line on the right side. it is very subtle, but it is more exaggerated when i lift my arms. i can also feel a sort of identation here. my breasts are otherwise soft, dropped nicely, and look great. it just really bugs me!!

I am assuming you are referring to a line across the lower part of your breast above your crease.
