Mentor 500cc silic, mod prof, under muscle. 1.6m tall, 55kg, pre op 34/75b. transax. Hi just wanted to know if i will have more drop, i seem to still have a lot of upper pole fullness. I have been wearing a strap & massaging since 5weeks post op. I am now 2months 1 week post op.Worried my lower pocket will scar or close before implant gets a chance to drop further. Is there anyway i can manipulate them to drop into the pocket sooner? will applying hard downward pressure help?...thank you
How Long For Breast Implants To Drop After Transaxillary Augmentation
Thank you for your question. I share your concern that your Implants are not dropping as fast as I would like.
It is true large implants through a trans axillary incision take longer so I would continue pole wrap and downward massage until 6 months.
If they are still this high then revision will be necessary if you want lower pole fullness.
This is a simple release procedure but will have to be done through an Infra mammary Crease incision for accuracy and the best result. Don't worry in time the scars will not be visible on frontal view.
Dropping progression ?? after 2 month BA
Hi , i do not know if your PS asked you to use an elastic band that force the implant to descend to lower pocket , BECAUSE ounce this surgery is done , the muscle forces the implant to occupe the upper poles ,
after 2 months i do no think there is much you can do because this pocket is already closed , my advice is to talk with your doctor to see wich are the options for you now
Ar e the implants dropping fast enough? Trans -ax placement.
Your implants are a bit high for being 2 months postoperative. Trans-axillary placement of breast implants do take longer to descend. Pushing hard on your implants will not help you. Continue to have an open dialogue with your plastic surgeon regarding your concerns. Every plastic surgeon has a protocol that is slightly different from another plastic surgeon. You trusted your plastic surgeon to do the surgery, now trust them to take care of you afterwards.

Implants settling after augmentation
Hi Sassouri. Based on your photos, it seems that your implants are still settling. Sometimes this can take longer than 2 months, so I would continue to observe them and continue your follow up with you plastic surgeon.
I hope that helps and wish you the best.
Breast Augmentation and Dropping with Massage
Larger implants take longer to drop, particularly in smaller women. Massage can help, but larger implants may take 3 to 6 months to drop to their final levels. Kenneth Hughes, MD breast augmentation Los Angeles, CA
Drooping Progression After Breast Augmentation
It does seem that they are dropping at a normal rate. Listen to your surgeon and perform your breast massages as they told you to. It can take 3-6 months for them to completely drop but from what I can see they are dropping at a nice pace.
Breast implants dropping?
Likely, the impaltns will drop some more with time. It can take up to four months or so. Good luck and follow closely with your surgeon.
The 500 cc. are larger implants. Transaxillary augmentation especially if it is bluntly done may take longer to resolve.
Appropriate Size Of Breast Implants and Fullness
Thank you for sharing great before/after photos showing a significant dropping of the implant over time.
Nonetheless, the 500cc is considered a big sized implants when factoring your physical traits into the equation.
Mother nature will continue to work its way and gravity will help the dropping of the implants into their "normal"position but it is unlikely that you will notice the same progress you have achieved over the past couple of months. If dropping is to take place, it will be subtle at this time.
Please do continue to follow your surgeon's instruction and keep on massaging the implants religiously but I do not advise you to use excessive pressure when doing so as forcing the implant downward without having a place to go may be risky.
I hope this helps and please feel free to check the website below.
Thank you for your inquiry and the best of luck to you.

It takes time
There is no way to predict what will happen in any one individual, but I tell my patients it takes a minimum of 3-4 months for stretching to complete, and in some it takes longer. If it isn't perfect in 4 months, continue to wait a minimum of 6 months.
