Breast is too low / uneven nipples / - revision?


Recommended Posts

Hi girls! I was wondering if anyone has had the same issue and if they went for a revision.

I had my boobs done 2 years ago now and I haven't been completely happy with them. Basically since my nipples were originally unequal, the difference got exaggerated after the surgery (I was warned this would happen). But, because I wanted the breasts to look natural they sit kind of low. Which makes one of the nipples sit really high on the breast, making it impossible to wear certain bras and tops because it shows. My surgeon offered me to have a revision for only $2k. He would basically move the pockets up, so that implants sit higher. If I go for it, the nipples would still be uneven, but at least they would be somewhat in the middle of the breast. Has anyone had a similar revision? On the second picture I lifted the breasts up to show what it would look like of they both were lifted.. Thoughts?

I don’t think it’s just the nipple position which is the problem, I think your breasts are considerably different in size. The pocket seems to be made quite low although hard to tel without seeing before photos. Did you see a reputable surgeon to begin with? If so, a revision may make you happier. If not, I would be doubtful it’ll be worth the money and recovery time etc.

I had the surgery with dr Eddy Dona. He seems to be reputable in Sydney. I had no boobs at all, so they were definitely the same size (No size to be precise). I think it appears this way to you because the breasts look so asymmetrical. In my opinion the breast on the left is perfect. I never wanted them to sit hight.. But after the surgery I found out that I should have requested them to sit higher so that the nipples are somewhat in the middle..

I’m not an expert but to me it looks as if your left (when looking at your photo the one on the right) may have bottomed out. 

What does Eddy say? I’ve had 4 lots of breast surgeries now. First one terrible results and complications and the ps who did them denied anything was wrong telling me I looked great. My redo surgeon who is awesome did a full anchor lift with replacement of implants and change of placement from overs to partial unders. Unfortunately my left refused to drop and my right didn’t quite lift up enough. We went back in and did some adjustments and I got a 10 year run out of those implants. Unfortunately recently my left breast kept filling up with fluid which was drained out twice via ultrasound guided aspiration. The only option was to replace my implants sooner rather than wait (I was planning a revision anyway due to massive weight loss). I absolutely loved my old set and I love this new set even more. If Eddy has a plan for revision that you are comfortable with and if you are happy returning to him I would go see what he says before deciding if you want to go ahead with a revision. 

Sometimes things just don’t go to plan. It’s rare for an implant to not drop yet it happened to me 10 years ago with the left. It doesn’t necessarily mean surgeon error. If you are not happy with his plan for you then I would get a second or even third opinion. 

Sorry im half asleep and I’ve just reread your post about the surgical plan. Can a lift on one breast not be done at the same time to make the nipple position more symmetrical?

My surgeon discussed my nipples prior to surgery as they were low. He talked about the position of the implants (anatomical) and the pockets and how he would position them so that the nipples were more central, which they are.

Your breasts seem to be positioned quite low, which seems to have 'flicked' the nipples upwards. Did your surgeon recommend a breast lift? I know you said you had nothing much to start with and nor did I, but sometimes even with smaller breasts, they may require a lift at the time of augmentation.

That being said, Dr Dona is reputable and so a revision would be worth considering. Do any bra's have the same effect as when you hold your breasts up?

Good luck with your decision and I hope it can be rectified xo

I'm sorry to hear you had to go through so many surgeries. I hope you are happy with the result now.. 

I don't want to do a lift as I don't want to touch my nipples. That's why tightening the pockets seems like a perfect option for me. And I guess since dr Dona has been understanding about my issue and offered a revision with a big discount that's something to consider.. However one of my friends said that if he messed it up once he will do it again and suggests I go to a different specialist. That would cost me as a full new surgery though

You are right, the breasts are positioned quite low because I wanted a natural look. To be honest with you once it's been done I realised that it might have not been the best approach as sometimes I feel as if my breasts look saggy not to mention the nipple issue. Anyways, that's why I feel like lifting them higher up would be a great solution for me as it would tackle 2 issues at the same time. 

As for the breast lift, I was told I didn't need one and I was warned about the nipples asymmetry. I just didn't expect one of my nipples to be so high up it's almost like it's not a part of the boob.. Because the original asymmetry was extremely minor. I definitely believe that it should have been predicted by the surgeon as I can't know what outcome I will have exactly.
