Will my textured anatomical gummy bear implants soften up?

My implants are 10 weeks old. Before was 36aa has 375 hi profile. I am aware that gummy bear implants will be firmer than silicone. They are very firm. They don't move when I jump and don't jiggle at all, I'm positive that I don't have a capsular contracture. They are softer in upper pole. Am I being impatient is this normal?

I appreciate your question.

Right now, you are  early on in the post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Express your concerns to your surgeon so he/she can examine you. Then reassess final result at 6 months.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.

Best of luck!
