What's the double bubble and why does it occur? Also, if corrected by surgery, will it be noticeable or reappear later?
Double bubble is a term used to describe when a breast enlargement is perfrormed with an implant, but the skin and breast tissue are not draped evenly over the implant. The result is the appearance of a mound of breast tissue sitting on top of an implant, hence the "double bubble".
The problem can be avoided by using the correct style of implant to address the width of the breast mound, and the implant volume the patient needs to achieve the desired effect. This can mean that a larger implant than the patient desires may be needed to fill the loose skin and a breast lift needed to evenly locate the breast tissue over the implant.
