Implants still high

Hi rnam

I wouldn't worry at this point.  I find in my practice that the implants tend to just start dropping between three and four weeks out.  This will cause more lower pole fullness and less upper pole fullness, for a more natural breast.  

I can't comment on the size.

All the best.

Thank you for your question.

You are still very early out from surgery, and your surgeon is correct, it will take some time for the muscle and breast tissue to relax.  I think you will ultimately be happy with your size.  Please continue to follow closely with your surgeon and follow their recommendations.
