Is this a normal settling pattern for breast implants at 6 weeks? (photo)
Doctor Answers 4
In my own practice I tell my patients that it will be about three weeks before they even believe that they're going to come down, by about 12 weeks I will know and you will know you are high,but no one else will care, and ultimately your most natural result will come between six and 12 months after surgery.
Some patients can take longer to drop than others depending on the size of the implant and their anatomy. For example, it will take longer for a 500 CC implant stretch and relax the skin and muscle than a smaller implant. A more muscular person with a sub muscular implant will take longer for the implant to drop as well.
Share your concerns with your plastic surgeon, who I suspect will walk you through this and confirm that your normal.

6 week post op
Six weeks is still early, and the appearance of the implants is not yet final. As always, preop photos would help when looking at outcome photos.
Best answer will come at your visit to your surgeon in two weeks.
All the best.
