One week post op is way too soon to be trying to judge the results of an augmentation with a mastopexy (uplift). Give yourself at least 6-8 weeks for swel\ling and bruising settle somewhat. Your breasts will change dramatically. Mastopexies can look pretty rough at up to a month post op. If you decide to have a revision, you will get a better result if you wait until the scars have matured, which is usually about 6 months, maybe sooner, but I like to wait until the scars are softer to get the very best result. It's worth the wait. Good luck and try to be patient.
The final appearance, shape, and movement are not exactly the same as normal breasts. The surgically enlarged breasts do not move in the same way as normal breasts. They tend to be firmer. The contours are usually somewhat different than normal breasts. In some patients these discrepancies may be rather noticeable. Although every effort is made to place the implants symmetrically, complete symmetry is rarely achieved. Immediately after surgery, the breasts are swollen and firmer. The final shape and size is approximated after 2 to 3 months, but up to one year may be required for the end result.
Generally, allow 3-6 months of healing to pass before considering revision surgery. Be sure to consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon. Good luck.
If you just had the surgery about a week ago, then it is best to allow things to heal. I would say 4-6 months might be reasonable before having a possible revision if necessary.
Dear Ramaka, Front an side view pictures would have been very helpful . Sorry for your troubles and disappointment. Since you just had the surgery, you will have to put up with your disappointment for at least 3 months, in order for wounds to heal well. It sounds like most of your disappointment derives from your flat chest. That can easily be corrected by replacing your implants with bigger ones. To make room for larger implants you might need capsulotomy (scar release ) at the time of the replacement. It will be helpful for you to perform implants displacement massage, so the implants will settle as natural as possible and soften up. Your best option (financially) for any corrective surgery is to go back to you surgeon as long as you did not lose you confidence in him... Choosing the right doctor, who will perform your surgery successfully will be less costly in the long run. All the best, Dr Widder
It is extremely difficult to make any sort of comment without seeing photos. However, after only a week I would suggest that you give the swelling some time to dissipate and allow the implants to settle. It's possible that you have swelling in between implants and that may cause things to look smaller.
Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your concerns. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon. Your surgeon is the best resource when questions arise. They are most familiar with your medical history, details of your surgery, and how you are healing. Typically a revision after breast surgery, is not performed until it has been six months after surgery.
Thanks for the question. Its too early to talk about final results.I recommend you to send your photos to us to give you the advices you need and want. Kind regards,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-
Without photos and the benefit of physical exam- it is difficult to comment accurately. Generally speaking, at 1 week it is very early to judge your final result. It is best to discuss your concerns with your Operating Board Certified PS
