Recovery after surgery
Both liposuction surgery and breast implant surgery take a considerable amount of time until you can appreciate the final results. With liposuction, most patients at one month still have considerable swelling that will take another few months to resolve. Breast implants almost universally appear to be "too high" at one month post op. You should see a gradual softening and descent of the implants over the next two months. I would just wait before becoming too frustrated with your results at this point.

The Hardest Part About Plastic Surgery
Nothing will be more valuable in your recovery than patience. Things will change dramatically in time. Swelling takes an unpredictable course but is there to some degree in almost everyone. The same is true for your breasts. It may be helpful, if you have them, to look at pictures from one week postop as well. I am certain that if you do you will see the implants slowly shifting downwards to their best position. Submuscular implants always look ridiculous at one week and get gradually better in time. Be patient and know that there are likely to be other concerns that develop in the next few weeks or months for which the answer is the same.
Post surgery concerns
I agree with other post to slow down and wait 3-4 months to see how things change. More surgery now would increase your risks of problems. if the implants were under the muscle and large like yours it takes 3 months for things to relax and stretch. 1500cc is not that much fat but we do not know what was done. If you have had children and have rectus diastasis then lipo alone would not fix this. Sorry, but you may end up with surgery down the road but do not rush in to it. Good Luck!
Revision surgery after Breast Implants and Liposuction
as Dr Morgan has pointed out; any revision surgery if required should only be considered after 6 months to an year following an op.
This allows the final result to manifest as the skin and tissues adapt and settle into position.
1 month post op is way to early and I am sure you will notice a better result as time goes; please co-ordinate with your PS
Wait a few months before assessing results
I recommend you wait about 4 months at least before assessing your results. Your breasts haven't settled yet and swelling may be obscuring your results. At that time, you can then consider revision surgery if you haven't achieved the results you want.
Unhappy with liposuction and breast implant result
You cannot have any surgical revision after liposuction
and breast implants
for a minimum of 3 months - m
y patients wait for 6 months. Why?
- Implants under the muscle can take time to settle,
- Swelling obscures the result of liposuction.
At this point, you need to be patient and let surgery heal before making any revision decisions.
