Will my implants drop, smoothing out the indentation? (Photo)

Wait at least 6 weeks if no sign of infection
Thank you for your question. It often takes many weeks, if not months to see the final results from your breast surgery and for the implants to settle. As long as signs of an infection do not occur again, I would wait at least 6 weeks before consulting with your surgeon again. I would consider revisional surgery only after one year post surgery to allow for swelling and scar tissue to settle.
The left implant may drop some but you will probably need revision of that side at some point. You may even need fat grafting to fill out the dent.
