Unicode characters are abstract notions. What a particular glyph looks like is up to the font and the rendering engine. So from Unicode's point of view, one combining breve is enough. Where exactly it is positioned depends on whether the base letter is narrow or wide, tall or short, but again, that's a font and/or rendering engine issue -- so I'd look there rather than in Unicode for a solution.
