Will the "torpedo" look my breasts have after my Breast Augmentation with Lift, go away? (photos)

Wound Healing Is A Dynamic Process
Your post-operative pictures suggest that you have a relatively normal result two days following surgery. For this reason, it's important to be patient and maintain close contact with your plastic surgeon. Over the course of time, your result should continue to show improvement.
If you're ultimately unhappy, revisional surgery may be necessary. This should be delayed for at least six months to optimize wound healing and minimize swelling.

I agree and disagree with my colleagues' answers.
What won't happen, IMHO, is that the excess skin between your inframammary creases and your nipple/areola complexes (as evidenced by the long length of the vertical scar) will not "get less" as time goes by. Rather, this skin will stretch as your implants drop, and you will have a long(er) distance between your creases and the nipples, giving you (the appearance of) a too-high nipple position atop your breast mounds.
Of course if this occurs, then the excess skin must be excised in a curving horizontal ellipse along your breast creases, just as if you had undergone a Wise-pattern (anchor) lift in the first place.
I certainly hope I'm wrong on this, and perhaps even a majority of my colleagues would agree that I'm wrong, but I've revised too many poorly-designed vertical (lollipop or circumvertical) lifts over the years to think this is the best option. I understand the desire to reduce scarring, but not if the final shape is odd or requires more scars (later).

No cause for alarm. Your breasts will definitely settle over the coming months and irregularities will definitely soften and flatten. Keep your surgeon in the loop. Without your preop photos it is hard to say, but you look like you have a great lift. All the best, "Dr. Joe"

Relax and Be Patient
For all patients, please understand that surgery is not like carving a block of stone, we have to deal with soft tissue that sags after surgery and we, as surgeons, have to anticipate these changes. The science is not exact. I expect that your results will be great!
