Implants too Big?

Wait 3-4 months before assessing results
If at 3-4 months you still dislike your results, you can consider revision surgery.
Are breast implants too large
- I am sorry you are worried after your breast augmentation,
- I assume your chest width is 13 cm (not inches...easy typo)
- I checked the Allergan moderate profile saline implants for a 13 cm chest width - your implant should fit your chest, which is good,
- You are swollen, the size will go down,
- They sound as though they are riding high, as saline implants do under the muscle.
- Give the implants six weeks to settle down and swelling to subside.
- If they still seem too big for you, discuss replacement with smaller implants in 6 months,
- You may by then be happy with the result and keep what you have! Best wishes.

Concerns eight days after breast augmentation
- It takes time after breast augmentation to achieve your final contour and shape. I recommend my patients not be overly concerned for 6 to 8 weeks. I would suggest you continue to follow with your plastic surgeon and discuss your concerns with him or her. Remember with a breast augmentation you are only adding volume and not adding any extra skin or elasticity does take some time to develop and to achieve your final contour.
