Breast Augmentation - Early Result
Am I Bottomming Out after Breast Augmentation? #breastaugmentation #breastimplants
- Your post op photos from 6 weeks after your breast augmentation look great.
- Remember that you won't see your final results from breast augmentation for several months.
- Bottoming out refers to a breast implant migrating too low on the chest wall and ending up below the infra-mammary fold. I don't see clear evidence of that happening in the photos you've sent.
- Breast implants do sometimes settle into place at different rates, so be patient as you will likely be very happy with your results in a few months.
- Thanks for sharing!
6 Weeks Post Op
Thank you for your question and photos. You don't appear to have a problem at the moment. You are still early in recovery and slight asymmetries can be common while implants are settling. As well, small asymmetries that you had beforehand will remain and these can appear more noticeable directly after surgery. Follow up with your Plastic Surgeon if you have ongoing concerns.
All the best
Breast Augmentation Recovery
Thank you for your inquiry and photos!
While your picture does give some insight that the settling down of the implants has begun, it takes approximately 8 weeks for the initial process to start. After a breast augmentation, it will take the breast 6 months-to-a year for the full drop to occur, therefore, it is too soon to judge if one breast is lower than the other. This will be better noted once the dropping process has fully occurred. If you feel any concern with your breast augmentation dropping process, consult with your plastic surgeon in order for him to track your progress.
Best of luck!
6 weeks post op, some advices:
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. Kind regards,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-
