Hello, I had a breast lift with silicone implants 6 weeks on Thursday 8th. Before my surgery I was wearing a D/DD bra. I wanted to be back to my normal Full DD. Now, all of my bra's are too big. Is this normal? How come I am smaller then when I went in?
Breasts Smaller After Lift with Implants?

Lifted and enalrged breasts appear smaller and fit into smaller bra
I see this quite frequently. Even though no breast tissue or volume is removed breasts can appear smaller and fit into a smaller bra size after a lift primarily because prior to surgery larger bras are used ot contain the sagging breast. A sagging breast will appear heavier due to the low lying position on the chest as well.
