I got 350cc silicone implants put in 3 days ago, behind the muscle. I was a 34-A before, looking to become a 34-C. I came out of surgery and they are riding so high on my chest I look deformed! It honestly looks like a man's pecs. Should I get them removed?? Or will they lower? And how soon? I am a dancer, so the money I make (to support my children with) depends on how my body looks.

Breast Implants Riding High 3 days Post Op
Thank you for your question and photos.
It is very normal for breast implants placed under the muscle to ride high for the first few months until the pectoralis muscle relaxes and the breast implants fall into the pocket created for them.
At this point in your recovery (3 days post op), it is too early to know what your final outcome will be. I suggest you keep your follow up appointments with your surgeon and allow him/her to get you through the recovery process.
3 days postop
Don't worry - you are only 3 days postop. What you are seeing is very likely postoperative swelling. It can take 2-6 weeks for that swelling to resolve. So followup with your PS. Best of luck.

High Riding Implants Right After Breast Augmentation
For most breast augmentation patients, it is perfectly normal that the implants will look too high particularly right after surgery. Swelling and the initial tightness of the once smaller breast mound make for considerable and unnatural upper pole fullness. The implants will initially go to where the tissues are not as tight. As the swelling subsides and the skin begins to relax, particularly in the lower pole, implant dropping or settling will occur. This is process may be encouraged through the use of banding in the first month after surgery, which is common practice for most plastic surgeons if needed. Rest assured that you have a ways to go in the recovery process and the final result has yet to be seen.
