The bottoms of my breasts have a scalloped shape. I'm 3 months post-op with silicone implants. Will this change? (Photo)

Constriction of Old Breast Fold
What you are looking at on profile is the remaining constriction of your old breast fold. If your surgeon measures the distance from the nipple to your previous fold at the time of your consultation I am sure if you measure it again today you will see that that represents the old fold. This tends to improve over the course of a year. Also, some people have a particularly “tight fold” that preoperatively can be recognized as giving a more prominent scalloping. On those patients, I like to score the breast tissue from the inside with radial scoring to try to help round out and expand that.
I hope this has been helpful.

Thank you for your question and photos. It would be best to discuss the reasons for this and expectations for improvement in person with your Plastic Surgeon. It may improve over time but you will need to be examined in person.
All the best
Postop results may be secondary to preop shape

Unhappy with post op appearance
if you're shape is continuing to evolve - be patient. If this is how it's been with no change - you should return to your surgeon to ask about what might be done.
if you want a second opinion, it will be very helpful to know what were your original breast measurements, what size implants were used, and what were
your goals with the first operation
always seek out a board certified plastic surgeon and good luck!
