Compression Band can Help
You are very early from your mommy makeover. You should hurry back to your surgeon immediately if you notice the right breast is higher than the left. This early on after surgery, that position can be influenced by application of a band with steady compression on the upper portion.
I hope this has been helpful.

- Your implants are under the muscle.
- The muscle is in spasm, forcing the implant high.
- It will come down in time, but can take anywhere form 2 weeks to 6 months.
- Alert your surgeon to your concern so you can follow your healing together to be sure all is well.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

At just 4 days out, you are at the peak of your swelling. This might well be the cause of your situation, as the swelling often makes the implants temporarily look higher - but you should have your surgeon check you over, to rule out other possibilities, like bleeding or infection.
Usually, the swelling settles down over about 3 weeks, and the tissues relax over about 2 -3 months, and the implants settle into their final position.
All the best,
