- It's much too early to tell what your final breast appearance will be.
- Currently, most of your breast implant is riding high.
- With time, over the course of a month or two, your implants will settle into place and stretch out the lower pole breast skin.
- This all takes time, so try to be patient! Chances are you'll be very happy with your final results!
- 500 cc implants are by no means small! You'll definitely notice a difference!

Will my breasts will become larger when the implants settle?
Generally speaking (for the benefit of future patients considering breast augmentation/lifting surgery), patients undergoing this combination operation should understand that it is significantly more complex than breast augmentation surgery only and that it is associated with a significantly higher risk of complications and need for additional surgery.
Also, patients undergoing the combination breast augmentation/lifting surgery should understand that there are limits as to how large of an outcome can be achieved, given that breast lifting surgery does involve breast skin removal. On the one hand, breast augmentation surgery is expanding the breast skin “envelope” while breast lifting is (by definition) tightening up the breast skin envelope. These 2 forces are counteracting each other. Therefore, it becomes important to remove the appropriate amount of breast skin and to use the appropriate size/profile of breast implants to balance these 2 forces appropriately and to allow for achievement of the patient's goals while minimizing risks of complications.
In your case, everything considered, I would suggest ongoing time and patience; evaluate the outcome of the procedure performed six months down the line. If you still have concerns regarding breast size or symmetry long term, your plastic surgeon will likely be able to improve your outcome with revisionary breast surgery. Best wishes.
