I had breast augmentation on 07/16/10. I am almost 3 weeks post op. My left breast already looks fabulous, but my right breast has a visable indention, and I can feel some rippling. I called my PS and was told that it was normal to have things like this happen, while the breast are settlig into the pocket and forming the capsule. I am so worried that my breast is going to look like this forever. Is this normal or should I be worried. I dont see my PS for 2 more weeks. What should I do?
Rippling of implants
All implants can ripple. It will happen more commonly in very thin patients and also more likely with saline implants.

I would confirm with his/her office and ask for an earlier appointment if this causes you concern. IF it is visible you can send him/her a picutre.
