How Long Do Large Breast Implants Take to Drop?

Healing after breast implants
generally two to three months is a reasonable time for healing. variables include:
- laxity of skin
- position of implant
- size of muscle
- size of implant
It can take several moths for implants to sit properly in the pocket especially when large implants are used and the skin is a bit tight.
How long till implants drop?
You have provided all the pertinent information. Sub muscular implants have a phenomenon whereby the muscle contracts due to the implant position,and in my experience it will take 4 -6 weeks. You have a big implant(800cc) so the weight of this larger implant will assist in the coming down process. Other factors include how much skin laxity you had preoperatively. Be patient, do your massage exercises and good things will happen

Implants Dropping after Surgery
Depending you your skin tightness, submuscular implants may take 3 months to find their final position, but in same cases, they may still settle for up to 6 months. So give it some time and follow up with your plastic surgeon.
Breast Implant Dropping?
Thank you for the question.
Most of the breast implant dropping or settling happens within the first 3 to 6 months after surgery. Occasionally, I have seen implants “drop” even up to one year after surgery.
I suspect every surgeon's experience will be different given that different dissection techniques may be employed.
I hope this helps.
