Why 12 months? That’s a long time 🙁 xxx
Oh no! 12 months seems a long time to wait but at least it’s been identified early and you can get booked in to get it sorted albeit you have to wait! Xx
I had to wait 12 months it’s to reduce chance of scar tissue x
Did they give you a reason for 12 months Hun??? You poor hint! Hope it gets sorted!!! Xx
They havent confirmed 12 month ive been told a few things im still waiting for somebody to get it touch to see whats gonna happen xx
My pc said it usually corrects itself xx

I am getting paranoid now girls. My right boob has a shadow as well . Is that the beginning of double bubble then ? How does it start? Does it appear from nowhere or just changes into this weird shape with time ? Xdonnaxx
Hi everyone what is a double bubble?? X
“Double bubble” is a descriptive term for a postsurgical complication that can occur after breast augmentation with breast implants. Specifically, double bubble happens when an implant drops down behind the natural fold (inframammary crease) where the lower breast meets the chest, rather than forward into the breast. This shifting creates an unnatural indentation or line across the bottom (lower pole) of the breast; this is particularly visible when the arms are lifted above the head. When viewed in profile, double bubble is said to have a “four-breast effect.”
here are several scenarios that can result in double bubble, including improper breast implant placement. Double bubble occurs most often in women with sagging breasts whose implants were placed under the chest (pectoral) muscles. (This placement is known as submuscular, and the implants are referred to as “unders.”) The breast tissue hangs low enough to look like one set of breasts. The implants look like another.
Also at high risk are women who have limited lower breast skin, or a short distance between the bottom of the areola (dark skin around the nipple) and the breast crease.
Another contributing factor for double bubble is breast augmentation capsular contracture. This occurs when scar tissue tightens around the implant, causing aesthetic and physical problems.
Double bubble can also occur when:
Implants are too big (heavy) for the chest wall and cause the supporting tissues to stretch, settle or migrate below the inframammary crease
Implants are poorly positioned by the surgeon
The mammary crease is constricted
The woman has tuberous breasts
Scarring is present from previous breast surgeries
Double bubble can develop at almost any time after breast augmentation surgery. If you develop this complication, consult with your surgeon. Remedies do exist.
I think i have signs of dubble bubble, i am starting to see my original crease on my left side of my breasts, Mr Traynor was my surgeon also. Donna can you get in touch with me please. I am really concerned xx
