My Breast Look Square and High Up
It is quite common for implants to appear "high riding" at a week after surgery, and they can be expected to "drop" over the course of 3 months as the pectoral muscles relax to accommodate these.
As to the choice of size, that is hard to answer without preop photos and breast measurement.They do look quite large for your frame, and that may be contributing to the appearance. The width of a 600 HP implant is just under 14 cm, and many surgeons would restrict their use to patients whose breast width is 14 cm.
At any rate, work on massage and if you don't have a pectoral strap, ask your surgeon if you should be using one.
Thanks for you question, and best wishes.
My Breast Look Square and High Up After Breast Augmentation?
It is has been common for the immediate post-operative appearance of breast implants to be high riding and you are well served to massage them down. Work with your surgeon, but I would suggest being very diligent about your massage exercises to assist in getting them into a lower position.

Usual appearance after surgery
It appears that you have a thinner body frame, and the breast implants are on the larger side. Both of these factors can contribute to their current appearance. While this does look unusually jellybean-ish, it’s still just a week after your surgery, which means that they’re compressed and sitting a little higher than they should be. Over 4 months or so, your body will adjust to their presence, and they’ll drop into position and soften.
I am post surgery. Domy breasts look weird?
Thank you for your question. Your postoperative photographs are certainly
very helpful. My advice is to wait 4 to 6
months prior to considering a "final" result. I wish you the best of luck.
One week post op, high and square, normal?
Thank you for the photo. Only one week out, it is very hard to say anything about the final outcome. Breast implants tend to start dropping into place after 3 to 4 weeks. They usually will get to their final position in 6 to 12 months. One will drop faster than the other, also the shape may go through changes. Please follow your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon's post op instructions. We like message, but some surgeons will have you wait, or do it in a specific manner. Please also let them know your thoughts and concerns.
Breasts look square and high up
Thank you for the question and photo. At 1 week post op, you are still very early in the recovery stage. it could take a good 4-6 months for the implants to settle. Give it time. Best of luck. Dr. Michael Omidi.
in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess
your needs and provide true medical advice.
Plan on 3-6 months for these to drop...
The period of time immediately following breast augmentation
surgery is characterized by rapid change. During this dynamic phase of healing,
swelling, muscle spasm and the healing process itself, all contribute to
changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts.In some cases, swelling and muscle spasm can displace breast implants in
a superior direction when implants are placed beneath the muscle.Based on your pictures, I believe this is a
cases, superior implant displacement may be due to inadequate pocket
dissection.When the muscle insertions
of the inferior pocket aren’t adequately separated, the implant is often
superiorly malpositioned.At this point
in time, there’s no evidence to suggest that this has occurred in this
time, assuming adequate pocket dissection, these implants might return to a
more normal position.Sometimes, the use
of massage and a superior bandeau may facilitate the process.It may take 3 to 6 months for these implants
to drop into a normal position.If no
progress has occurred by then, revisional surgery may be necessary.This would involve recreating the lower
portions of the breast pocket.
important to have good communication with your plastic surgeon.Make sure he is aware of your concerns.He is familiar with the specifics of your
surgery and will be able to give you appropriate direction.
My breast look square and high up after breast augmentation?
Hello! Thank you for your question! You are still early
post-procedure. Your appearance looks typical at this stage and will
continue to improve as the swelling subsides and the implants continue
to settle into their desired position. This usually proceeds over the
next several weeks as the lower pole skin/breast stretches to
accommodate the implants. Follow-up closely with your surgeon for
additional restrictions/instructions and the potential use of
bras/garments or massage that may encourage the implant to settle
appropriately. If still displaced after this time, a surgical procedure
may be necessary to further open the pocket and bring the implant(s)
down. Hope that this helps! Best wishes!
Wait for implants to drop
You are definitely too early in your recovery to judge your results because your breast implants haven't dropped yet. Wait 4 months to let this happen.
Breast Enhancement Surgery
Your muscles are pushing the implant where they can and that is up thats why the implants look boxy it will take a few months for things to settle but I doubt they will be perfectly round in the end
