well, I feel I have to send this in too!

Bottoming out is inferior migration of the breast implants. This causes the nipple areola to appear too high on the breasts. Also, the distance from the areola to thebreast crease is too great. This is corrected by “raising” the inframammary fold crease using internal sutures. This is done after careful measurements are made from the areola to the “new” inframammary crease.
Symptoms of Bottoming Out
Most patients report that they have a hanging or heavy sensation because of lack ofsupport for the implant. This may also be accompanied by a mild discomfort or a real pain. Rippling may be present as well because of the thinned tissues along the bottom of the breast.
