Will my right breast drop and form a crease like the left breast? (photos)
Doctor Answers 8
8 weeks post op, some advices:
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Thanks for submitting your pictures.
From observing your pictures , you appear to be C cup size with large areolas and level one ptosis (right side more so than left side) as well as bilateral capsule contraction with very wide cleavage and higher fold on the right breast.
At this stage, I would recommend intense implant displacement massage (which all my patients perform for 6-12 months) for the next 2-3 months. I have seen condition like your improve dramatically by performing the massage.
If after 2-3 month there is no improvement, you will have to consider revision surgery , which will include, bilateral capsulotomy (scar release) , creation of nice cleavage and possibly, additional mini lift.
You do not have to worry about double bubble at this stage, based on your pictures.
To redo your surgery, your best option (financially) is to return to your surgeon. However, if you are not satisfied with your surgeon's response or you lost confidence , consult with other experienced board certified plastic surgeons who perform lots of 'redo' breasts augmentation in accredited surgery center for your safety. Most importantly, check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and attractive with nice cleavage, perky, symmetrical and natural looking.
All the best,

In my experience it will take between 2-6 months for your implants to drop and settle. I recommend that you hold off on evaluating results until closer to 6 months post op.
