Patients with limited breast breast augmentation crease the same in the lower pole were encouraged to obtain a magnetic resonance imaging MRI after the conclusion of treatment to evaluate for the presence of implant injury or perforation. Scoring of the breast parenchyma or old breast crease can thin the soft tissue in the lower pole, increase implant wrinkling, visibility, and still not fully correct the double-bubble. Fat grafting for treatment of the double-bubble deformity is a simple technique which is highly effective in reducing the severity of the deformity. Strategies for repair of the double-bubble deformity include reconstruction of the inframammary crease by capsulorrhaphy, scoring of the breast parenchyma to reduce the difference in tissue thickness above and below the crease, 12 and other treatments.

Management of a Common Breast Augmentation Complication
Handel N. All patients were felt to be candidates for fat grafting treatment and desired correction of the deformity. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. The other approaches can be done with smaller silicone implants, as well as saline implants, which are filled once they are placed into the breast. Pin, M.
Breast Augmentation Procedure with the Inframammary Crease Incision
Patient presenting with severe double-bubble deformity of the breasts A and B. It can occur when breast augmentation crease the same breast implant is positioned below the old crease at surgery or when an implant falls below the crease with the passage of time creating a contour deformity. In our study, 12 patients with thin breast skin flaps at the double-bubble site underwent postprocedure MRI scans, and no evidence of implant disruption or perforation was noted.
