33, no kids, nonsmoker, tight skin, petite 5'1. I went from 250cc silicone implants down to 130cc submuscular through incision under the arm. I would like more information, will they hang lower since the pocket was made for an implant twice the size?, can I do anything to help shrink the pocket? How long does it take for skin to bounce back, days/weeks/months? I just feel like I don't know anything regarding downsizing this soon and am in the dark.
I waited 3 months after breast augmentation and downsized two days ago. What can I expect?

Concerns after your downsizing
Is there a reason you cannot discuss this with your surgeon? Ideally, your surgeon should manage all acute post-op concerns or issues and yours is certainly considered 'acute'. Otherwise, your pocket will shrink to some degree over the smaller implant and I hope your results turn out as you expected.
