The position where a breast implant ends should be the same one where it is placed at the conclusion of the procedure. I have read from other surgeons about breast implants settling, but, in  over 35 years of doing and teaching this procedure, I have never left the implant higher than intended. This goes, especially, for textured implants. I would be very careful with who you choose for the procedure, no matter where you have it done.

Hello there .All implants settle to some extent . Generally textured implants settle less than the smooth variety .However polyurethane-coated implants can take quite some time to settle .Generally all these things are planned into the procedure .It just takes a bit more time with some implants than others .CheersTS
