Bottoming out is a rare complication of breast augmentation, but one worth noting because it can largely be avoided by selecting a qualified plastic surgeon to perform your procedure.

There are two causes that typically result in rippling after breast augmentation. Breast implant rippling is the most common cause, and it’s normally associated with saline breast implants. An underfilled saline breast implant is the most likely culprit, so it’s normal to overfill...

One of the exciting things about breast augmentation is how many options you have to customize the procedure so you can get the results you desire. Breast implants alone come with many different options, so you can select the best breast implants for you.
Breast Implant Size
Breast implants come in many sizes in quite small intervals, so it’s possible to get breast implants that help you achieve the exact breast size you desire after surgery. You can even use breast implants to make unevenly sized breasts more equal.
Selecting the right size of breast implants is a very personal decision and should be made in close...
