I am not sure why you are so flat perhaps your implants have ruptured given those size implants in someone with a small frame

The stats say that this implant would make you a C cup. Having said that you are not. As the result matures, you will likely achieve more lower pole fullness and less upper pole fullness with a slight decrease in size as the swelling resolves.

Disappointing Breast Augmentation Result

A 380 cc saline breast implant SHOULD have given you a C bra cup size breast. A photograph would have been very helpful. I cannot explain why your breasts are flat and lack definition after placing this size breast implants unless you had a constricted breast deformity.

Usually an implant of that size would put you into a C or larger.  Are you sure the back size has been measured correctly?
