Small breast implants. Will they drop and project more in a few months? (photos)

Best of luck.
Your breasts will look larger and more natural as your healing progresses
Over the next 3 months your breast implants will drop beneath the nipple areola, project the breast further and look much more full and natural. My guess based on your current photo is that she will have an excellent result.
Do breasts look the same after dropping?
Breast implants initially after surgery when placed in a submuscular position often give superior fullness that corrects itself with time, the "fluff and drop" phenomena. In reality the pectoralis major muscle takes a while to adjust its size to accommodate the implant as well as occasional muscle spasm which keeps the implant projection higher than its final resting shape. Additional variables include:laxity of skin, size difference during prior pregnancies, position of implant,size of muscle, and size of implant.
As the muscle relaxes the projection of the implant often increases and the breast shape improves. Massage and use of a superior placed elastic strap can often make this process go faster.

Post breast augmentation size
Thanks for submitting your post operative pictures and indeed you look like miss fitness. You appear to be in the very early stages of your healing. The most important thing that you have to do now is implants displacement massage. That will strech your tissue and allow your implants to drop into their natural position which will give you more projection. It takes 3 - 4 months for the upper pole to flatten and have a natural slope. If you were 32 A cup before surgery, 350 cc implants should get you to 32 C cup size once the healing process is complete. However , if you wear a size 34 bra , your cup size might indeed be B cup. It is important to tell your surgeon before surgery , what size bra are you going to wear . Always , consult with experienced board certified plastic surgeons and check their before and after pictures to make sure that you like the results.
Best of luck,
