Re: What can I do to help my implants to drop?
Thank you for your question and images.
It appears from your images that you are symmetrical, and healing well.
As far as additional settling I feel that in most cases the majority of the settling typically occurs over the initial 2 to 3 months. In some cases I recommend tissue massage (particularly in cases of persistent asymmetry) to enhance the settling.
I would suggest that you discuss your concern with your surgeon to assure that you are doing the most to optimize your result/healing.
I hope this helps,

Healing takes more time than people expect and it can be discouraging.
- You are still swollen and things take time to heal. Usually it takes up to three months for the implants to settle down. As the swelling goes away, the implant softens and looks more natural.
- You will need at least six months to see your final result.
- If you have serious concerns, it is important to see your plastic surgeon because she/he knows exactly what was done for you.

How to get breast implants to drop
Your implants can continue to drop for several more months.
In my experience breast implant displacement exercises, vigorous pectoralis muscle contraction exercises, and a pole wraps HELP the implants drop.
Please see her plastic surgeon for an examination to make sure your implants are soft, movable and there is no evidence a capsular contraction.
