I got 600 cc High Profile Saline implants on Nov. 1st ,2012. They are stiff and look like jellybeans. They don't really have any round shape to them. I just started massaging them because they don't hurt anymore. I have had them exactly one week and I'm freaking out. I just want them to drop and look normal. Did I get them too big? Is there anything wrong with them? Anything I can do to make them more round? I was a 34 c pre- surgery.

Wait for implants to drop
My Breast Look Square and High Up
It is quite common for implants to appear "high riding" at a week after surgery, and they can be expected to "drop" over the course of 3 months as the pectoral muscles relax to accommodate these.
As to the choice of size, that is hard to answer without preop photos and breast measurement.They do look quite large for your frame, and that may be contributing to the appearance. The width of a 600 HP implant is just under 14 cm, and many surgeons would restrict their use to patients whose breast width is 14 cm.
At any rate, work on massage and if you don't have a pectoral strap, ask your surgeon if you should be using one.
Thanks for you question, and best wishes.
Plan on 3-6 months for these to drop...
In some cases, superior implant displacement may be due to inadequate pocket dissection.When the muscle insertions of the inferior pocket aren’t adequately separated, the implant is often superiorly malpositioned.At this point in time, there’s no evidence to suggest that this has occurred in this particular case.
With time, assuming adequate pocket dissection, these implants might return to a more normal position.Sometimes, the use of massage and a superior bandeau may facilitate the process.It may take 3 to 6 months for these implants to drop into a normal position.If no progress has occurred by then, revisional surgery may be necessary.This would involve recreating the lower portions of the breast pocket.
It’s important to have good communication with your plastic surgeon.Make sure he is aware of your concerns.He is familiar with the specifics of your surgery and will be able to give you appropriate direction.

34 C and 600 cc Implants at One Week
If you were a C before, you will likely be a DD after. This is a very large augmentation, and the body will take several months with massage to determine the final result. The implants will drop significantly. Kenneth Hughes, MD Hughesplasticsurgery Los Angeles, CA
Excessive fullness following augmentation
is a very common event. You should work with your surgeon who should be reassuring you about what is in your future and that they will come down. He/She has a post-op program that will help you achieve the look you want.
