Use of pole wraps after breast augmentation
Thank you for your question. Although your left teardrop implant is high do not see evidence that it is malpositioned based on your photograph. However examination by your plastic surgeon is important and you should insist on seeing the plastic surgeon and not to nurse.
Pole wraps are frequently used to help the implants drop and I do not believe that the pole wrap will displace your teardrop implant to one side or the other at this point. However please see your plastic surgeon for an examination and opinion
