Rectangular Breasts? Normal? (photo)

I got breast implants on june 25. I was a b and deflated saggy c. I had 475 & 500 cc high profile silicone implants under the muscle. When will the squarish look go away and give me nice looking boobs? And is this normal?

Wait 3-4 months before assessing results

When implants are first inserted, they sit high up because your tissues are tight and gravity hasn't taken effect. Over time, natural tissue expansion occurs to allow the implants to fall into place. By this time, your breasts will have taken on a more natural contour, where the lower breasts become softer and rounder. Please wait at least four months for this to happen.This process tends to occur sooner in one breast than the other, so don't be alarmed if you find that your left drops before the right or vice versa.

Dear Agionet,

Thank you for your post.  Your implants are way to high right now causing a squarish look.  They will hopefully fall over the next few months.  If they do not then a revision can get you the desired look.

Best wishes,

Rectangular Breasts

Thank you for your question.

The final shape of your #breasts will start to look its best approximately three months after #augmentation surgery. It takes time for the skin and muscle to stretch and relax around the new #implant. The breast will often look higher, firmer, and “less natural” in the first three months. It can take up to a year to see your final result. Have patience!

Implants and final shape

Implants palced under the muscle that are very large may take a while to come back down. This can take 3-4 months for some.

Comparing the before posted photo to the afters you had a severe asymmetry and the result looks very good in my opinion.

Pseudoglandular ptosis or sagging after a breast augmentation

Your implants are in a high position which is not unusual after a submuscular breast augmentation.  You have a condition known as pseudoglandular ptosis where the breast tissue seems to fall off of the top of the implant.  This can improve as the implant drops.  Continue massage of the implant and stretching excises to allow the muscle to stretch out over the implant.  If the implants do not drop over the next 3 months you may need an inferior capsulectomy.

High riding implants

Your picture shows that the implants are still high.  I tell all my submuscular BAM patients  that on average the implants start to drop on the third or fourth week post op.n  Therefore, nothing to worry about.

It is quite common for large under the muscle implants to appear to be high-riding for up to 3 to 6 months. The appearance in the photos may be exaggerated by the fact that your arms are partially elevated. 

Massage and a pectoral strap may help speed up the process. All the best.

Implants to high on the chest wall.

The implants look abnormal because they are too high on the chest wall. By now they should have settled. You should check with your surgeon.

Rectangular breast

This may take soem time to resolve and may not fully because thiose are large impalnts for your body frame and I always tell my patients you can';t put a gallon of milk intop a quart container.Massage and maybe a compression strap across the top may help.
