It looks square and distorted. I understand that i am still healing 21 days post op but is this permenant. What can i do to help it settle into a boob like shape?

Distorted Boob After Explant and Lift...what Can I Do?
Although not perfect, it already looks a lot better than before surgery. At three weeks this may be a temporary contracture of the vertical scar. Breast massage may help--but check on this with your surgeon before starting. This may well resolve, but otherwise a minor revision can be done.
All the best.
21 days post implant removal and lift
At this point, you have to let things heal and settle. If the shape is not adequate, a revision may be necessary.
