Drop and Fluff
Your large saline implants are far from their final position or shape. You do not need a strap, nor would strap make a difference anyway. They will most certainly drop, possibly more than you want.
Best of luck.

remember it is your responsibility to follow your post op instructions. I recommend massage for my patients. But ask your surgeon.... I also do not place the bottom portion of implants beneath the chest muscle in most patients (very thin patients requiring more coverage I do) allowing quicker and easier decent. But every patient is unique requiring a custom approach. I am speaking in generalities and have operated on many revision cases as well as primary cases...also, you can wear a band available on lots of web sites which provides constant downward presdure to facilitaye relaxing your chest muscle. Keep in mind also capsular contractures (which occur sometimes) limit decent. You look great. Be patient. Keep open communication with your surgeon!

Based on your photos and the fact that you are 2 weeks post op, I will not be surprised to see that your implants will drop into their natural pockets as time passes.
Please continue to communicate with your surgeon and keep on following the instructions provided by your surgeon.
The best of luck to you.
