Minimize pain after breast enlargement
Ibuprofen often is more effective at reducing pain than the medicines you are on.
Ask your surgeon if you can take this now.
As for the dropping - the photo suggests (this one photo is not adequate to be sure), that your implants are very high and your natural breast may have had a tuberous shape. If so, the lower breast tightening needs to be released to let the implants drop.
The implants will usually drop between 2 - 12 weeks.
In the meantime, ask your surgeon if you have tuberous shaped breasts and if so, were they released.
If implants do not drop by 3 months additonal surgery will be needed. Best wishes.

You need to speak with your plastic surgeon specifically about options to hasten the dropping of your breast implants. Typically breast implant displacement exercises, pectoralis muscle contractions, and pole wraps can be used but you need to your plastic surgeons advice.
