Swelling after Augmentation
You are 6 hours out from augmentation? Typically you would expect to be swollen for the first 1-2 weeks and for some of that swelling to start going away on day 4-5 and continue. Everyone swells in response to surgery differently, and also the extent of your breast surgery will determine how swollen you get. But, you shouldn't expect them to shrink too much. If you have round implants, they will maintain your upper pole cleavage look.

Thanks for ur question! I agree with the others that it is WAY too soon to judge the results of ur surgery yet. U look like u have a great early result (so far), & in my practice of doing hundreds of breast augmentations per year, most of my patients don't have too much post op swelling because I really do a meticulous job of stopping bleeding (hemostsasis). A large amount of swelling is NOT a good thing, & can lead too pain, infection, contracture, & an overall disappointing result. However, there r several other factors that can affect ur breasts over time: weight gain/loss, pregnancy, nursing, time & gravity. So like life in general, u can def expect ur breasts to change long term over time. Best of luck!
