Do you know if my breast would sit up over time. They sit very low still after surgery?

Thank you for your question. Typically, the breasts do not perk up over time. I recommend that you discuss a breast lift or other procedure with your Plastic Surgeon.

Breast sitting low after augmentation
Thanks for your question. I suspect your concern is that the implants are lower on the chest than you desired. If this is the case I would not expect the implants to move higher on the chest with time and instead do the opposite. If you are referring to the breast gland and nipple areola complex this could slightly elevate as an implant settles into position with specific maneuvers like subglandular placement or dual plane techniques but this is more about the relationship of the glandular tissue to the implant then a true movement of the tissues.If you are referring to how far the breast projects from the chest this will not increase over time and might be adjusted with higher profile implants.
In this forum it is difficult to assess what the issue might be an I recommend seeing your surgeon and expressing your concern.

It is difficult to answer your question as more information is needed. If you've recently had augmentation, it will take 3-6 months after surgery before seeing your final results. If you had surgery more than 6 months ago and are unhappy with your results you need to visit with your surgeon to express your concerns.
