I had saline implants a month ago. I went 650cc. Do these look like they are healing right? (Photo)

1 month post op
At one month post op it is not unusual to have some asymmetry and for breasts to sit a bit high and tight, however you will need to be examined in person and follow up with your Plastic Surgeon to ensure that they do continue to drop and soften as expected.
All the best

Although you are getting glowing reviews from the docs, I see a substantial asymmetry, with one implant clearly higher on your chest wall than the other, with the same breast lacking lower pole fullness. This could be due to your preoperative appearance, or the beginnings of capsular contracture, the most common complication of breast augmentation, especially for women with periareolar incisions.
It is true that it is still very early and time will tell. Regardless, there is nothing to do, so try not to worry. This includes any form of massage, vitamin E, Accolate/Singulair, or external ultrasound. All are ineffective at preventing or treating either capsular contracture or any other type of malposition.
Best of luck!

Breast Augmentation Recovery
In general I inform my patients that it takes about 4 months before they reach their final result. During this time I have them massage the implants if they are smooth round implants. At 2 months time they should be looking pretty good but still are a bit too high, however at the 4 month time they should be very soft and settled.
If you have any concerns it is best to discuss with your plastic surgeon as he/she would be able to exam you and see if you are on the right path.
