Do Sientra Textured Round Implants drop, or do they remain in the same position/or close to immediately after surgery? (photos)

Textured vs smooth
textured implants do theoretically bottom out less- as the others have said, your breast (skin, fat, muscle) will change a bit as it accommodates to your implant which will only make your breasts look better in my opinion. You look as you should at this juncture and are on target for a very nice result. Congrats!
Sientra implant position
Thank you for your question and photographs.
It is important to address any post-operative concerns with your plastic surgeon. You are still early on in your recovery. Swelling after a breast augmentation occurs with 100% of patients, eventually the swelling will go down and your breasts will drop into their pockets causing them to look more natural but still retain their perkiness. I would continue to wear your surgical bra as directed and perform your breast massages. Your doctor may also prescribe you a Medrol dose pack (steroid) to help with the swelling. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your recovery!
