Breasts Look Flat On Top,

i'm having difficulty with the photos. The two in the center look like quite a nice result, so I am wondering if the picture on the right has you leaning forward, it which case this is an expected appearance with or without implants. The other post-ops already show a somewhat exaggerated upper pole fill, so it is not at all clear to me what you would like to see different.

Discuss with your surgeon. All the best.

Breast augmentation

Your breast augmentation looks very nice and natural. If you  want to be larger it is best to discuss this with your surgeon.

It's really tough to evaluate without a pre-operative photo and more information about implant, size, placement and technique. Ultimately, it sounds like you're not satisifed with your results, and that's certainly a reasonable thing to discuss with your surgeon. It looks like you had a mature or matronly breast, and generating superior fullness would require a large high profile implant or mastopexy. Hopefully those options were presented to you.

The tops of your breasts do not appear flat.  I would wait at least 6 months for reevaluation.

According to the pictures I see you're eligible for a breast lift, this would help raise breast together. Talk about it with your doctor and if you do not want scars on your breasts is preferable to let them as they are. But your problem is solved with a breast lift

What you should ask for: breast revision

Actually your augmentation looks natural and well done. If you are unhappy with the shape you need to know how you wish your breast to look to see if your surgeon has a solution available.

Your breasts look good. Evaluation of the preoperative photos would be helpful.  I would continue to  observe and not ask for a revision at this early postop time.

Breast shape

It would be very helpful to see your pictures before surgery as well as pictures of what you like and what you wanted to achieve.

Aside from that you seem to have very natural looking breasts

Breast augmentation revision

Without pre-operative pictures it is impossible to judge the quality of your result.  This may be a fantastic result depending upon what you started with.  That being said, if you desire more fullness at the top, that can be accomplished either with larger implants or a lift.  Good luck.

Sientra Breast Implants

Hi Yaya,
I already know you are seeing a board certified plastic surgeon because Sientra only sells to BC plastic surgeons (by ABPS - The American Board of Plastic Surgery) who are members of ASAPS (The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery) and or a member of ASPS (The American Society of Plastic Surgeons). So that is great!  I would share your concerns and visit your PS frequently.  I wouldn't ask for a revision right now.  Overall you look great, but I can't say more without seeing your preop anatomy.  So go into the office and check it out.  All the best, "Dr. Joe"
