I'm worried that my breasts are larger than I'd hoped. I used to fill a b-cup bra with (what I thought) was mostly saggy, excess skin. I had a mastopexy with 230cc saline implants under the muscle. My PS recommended this when I told him I wanted to appear the same old size in a bra and t-shirt - but not sagging to the floor when I take the bra off anymore! At 3 wks however, they are larger than I wanted and fit most full c-cup bras. I know they may fall more but will they appear any smaller?

Size after augment/pexy
Breast surgery healing process
It is hard to say how much swelling and edema that you have from your surgery still, but I tell all of my patients to wait for at least 3 months after breast surgery to decide whether or not they are ultimately happy with the size and shape of the results. While I would be a bit suprised for you to lose an entire cup size in swelling, it is possible. It appears from your photo that there is a bit more bruising than what I typically see with my patients which might result in a bit more swelling that will take time to resolve. Be patient.
