Results of Breast Augmentation/Breast lifting?
Thank you for the question and pictures. You have done a nice job at pointing out the “indentation” you are concerned about. Unfortunately, at this stage in your recovery, it is really not possible to predict the final outcome of the procedure. At this point, continued to be patient and wait several months before evaluating the final results.
It is also in your best interest to avoid “depression” and continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon; continue to communicate your concerns and questions.
I hope this helps.
Breast lift with implants and early healing, an indentation
It is too soon to tell whether or not this indentation will relax and smooth over time. You are very early in the healing process. It is very likely that as your swelling goes down, the indentation will go away.
Let your plastic surgeon know about this and inquire when he/she wants you to begin scar massage. This could encourage the healing and smoothing of your breast over the implant.
You will have to have some patience with this. Time will tell. It may take anywhere from 3 months to a year to settle out.
I hope this helps. Best of Luck.
Right now you have significant swelling, and it is way to early to predict how it will appear in 3-6 months. Give it time.

Indentation/imperfections after augmentation/breast lift
I believe that most, if not all, of this indention will smooth out over time. the implant will place pressure in this area simply due to gravity. Skin likes to relax to a resting tension close to 32mm of mercury. (absolute number less important than the fact that there is a known resting tension of skin and when you place tension on skin for shaping above this pressure, it will relax over time.
Trust your doctor. This is a very difficult surgery and it takes time. Revision rates are not uncommon with this procedure.
Contour deformity of skin after subglandular breast augmentation with lift
Please do not be depressed. You are still very early in the healing process. Contour deformities of the breast after implant placement usually work themselves out. Skin and underlying tissue have an amazing ability to re-shape and conform. In the meantime, keep communicating with your PS and wear appropriate support to achieve best possible outcome. Best wishes, Dr. H

Breast contour issues after implants
You are very early in the post op period. Most contour problems improve with time. Discuss this with your surgeon who may want you to start massage of the breast. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.
Indent after breast implants with breast lift
The indent in your photo is and issue with the breast lift pattern which was tailored tightly under the nipple causing the indentation. Breast lift with implants is more challenging, though imperfections in the skin envelope do have a way of working out over time. For now it will take several months for the breast and implant to settle in together. The indent just might give way as the skin relaxes, and if not can be revised to smooth things out.
