The final appearance of your breasts after breast augmentation take several months to achieve.
The final appearance of your breasts after breast augmentation take several months to achieve. You should follow your surgeon's advice regarding massage exercises. Most implants tend to look high at first but should relax over time.
3 weeks post op.
It is quite common for the implants to be "high riding" during the early period after surgery. Until the pectoral muscles relax (allow 3 months or more) they press on the implants displacing the contents upward, and almost in all cases this resolves with time.
Massage, and wearing a pectoral strap probably speeds up the resolution.
Thanks, all the best.
When implants are first inserted, they sit high up because your tissues are tight and gravity hasn't taken effect. Over time, natural tissue expansion occurs to allow the implants to fall into place. By this time, your breasts will have taken on a more natural contour, where the lower breasts become softer and rounder. Please wait at least four months for this to happen.
Shape of breast after implants
It is a bit early in the post-op period to see the final results. More than likely the breasts will settle more. If you have concerns, you should touch base with your surgeon.
Is the shape of my breasts normal after augmentation?
You have post operative high riding implants due to muscle contraction. Best to allow your surgeon to follow up with you..
Breasts can take a number of weeks to settle after surgery in order to come to their optimal shape, I would suggest waiting at least 3 months before making a final deciison
