How is bottoming out of breast implants corrected?

Stuart A. Linder, MD
Plastic Surgery
"Bottoming out" simply means that there is sagging of the skin, and the implant falls with gravity, making the breast look very odd. To correct "bottoming out", you may require a procedure called a capsulorrhaphy or tightening up of the internal capsule. In this instance a breast lift may be required, which will leave external scarring, and may potentially require placement of a smaller implant.
