Shaped implants settling after breast augmentation
6 months would seem long enough to know your final result after breast augmentation, but shaped implants can take longer to soften and settle into the pocket. I was an investigator in the Allergan Style 410 study and have been using them since 2002. I have seen highly cohesive shaped implants soften considerably between 6 months and 1 year post surgery and continue to soften for 2 years, so I would give your breasts a little more time to settle before considering any additional surgery. You have a nice, natural early result which should improve more. But ultimately you are the best judge of what is right for you, discuss your concerns with your surgeon so you can make plans if you still aren't happy in the future.

Ultimately, careful selection of your plastic surgeon and careful communication of your goals (in my practice I prefer the use of goal pictures, direct examination/communication in front of a full-length mirror, and computer imaging) will be critical.
Generally speaking, the best online advice I can give to ladies who are considering revisionary breast augmentation surgery is:
1. Concentrate on choosing your plastic surgeon carefully. Concentrate on appropriate training, certification, and the ability of the plastic surgeon to achieve the results you are looking for. Ask to see lots of examples of his/her work. 2. Have a full discussion and communication regarding your desired goals with your plastic surgeon. This communication will be critical in determining breast implant size/type/profile will most likely help achieve your goals. In my practice, the use of photographs of “goal” pictures (and breasts that are too big or too small) is very helpful. I have found that the use of words such as “natural slope” or "down a cup size” or "C or D cup" etc means different things to different people and therefore prove unhelpful. Also, as you know, cup size varies depending on who makes the bra; therefore, discussing desired cup size may also be inaccurate. 3. Once you feel you have communicated your goals clearly, allow your chosen plastic surgeon to work with you in determining the best plan to achieve your goals.
