I'm not happy with my Breast Augmentation results. Am I a case for a revision? (photos)

Had surgery 7/3/14.My results are horrible.Had my first consultation, talked to my PS but he said this shape is normal. I really like and respect him but maybe I'm not asking the right questions. They are too high. My shape does not even look human breasts. I'm a 5'1, 104lb. Got HP68 320cc filled to 330cc saline under the muscle. Inframamary incision. . Am I a case for a revision? My profile looks so ugly! I'd appreciate any advice I could get.Thank you so much!

Hopefully you are seeing some settling

as you are excessively high.  Your surgeon should be helping you through this difficult time but in most people, their implants settle to a satisfactory position.  I use the strap in my practice and have been delighted with its effect.  Some poo poo its use but its saved my results on more than one occasion.  You don't start thinking revisions until you are considered healed... 4-6 months after your procedure.  So work at getting them down!

Your implants need to drop

Your implants do seem to sit high.  Sometimes right after surgery implants can look like they are very high and then over the next 3-4 months they settle down.  If you still look like this after 3 months, you most likely will need a revision.

You need to wait for your breasts to settle

When implants are first inserted, they sit high up because your tissues are tight and gravity hasn't taken effect. Over time, natural tissue expansion occurs to allow the implants to fall into place. By this time, your breasts will have taken on a more natural contour, where the lower breasts become softer and rounder. Please wait at least four months for this to happen.
