Congratulations on your procedure! At 2 weeks post-op, it's too soon to start evaluating your results. Everyone is different and over the next 3-6 months as your implants settle, the shape will change and fill out toward the bottom of your breasts. With that said, going from 450cc to 480cc is only about 5 teaspoons larger so it doesn't typically make a big difference in overall size. Continue going to your follow up visits, follow your surgeon's post-op instructions and most importantly, try to be patient. Re-evaluate in a few months and go from there. ac
Because of swelling in this stage of the healing processes, the breast appear large to most patients. As you continue to heal the implant will settle, soften and drop and this changes the overall shape of the breast. Patience and routine follow ups with your plastic surgeon are best for now. Good luck, Dean Vistnes.
It is very difficult to determine how your breasts appear in regards to the implant size that has been chosen without formal before and after photos and a physical examination. It is very common however that patients will go through periods after surgery thinking that they may be too big, too small, or concerned about the size of their breasts after augmentation. It is very important both before and after surgery to have clear communication with your plastic surgeon. The primary goal is for you to be happy as a patient and any concerns that you have need to be discussed and addressed by your plastic surgeon. Good luck to you
Thanks for your picture. It is hard to say if they look small. I don't have a picture of your desired result or a before picture of you. These implants may have done what exactly they have done based on your anatomy.
