How much size can you expect to lose when swelling disappears in cohesive gel overs?

3 weeks post op
Thank you for your question. By three weeks post op your swelling should be almost completely gone so the size you see at this point is yours. Skin may still be a bit tight and compressing the implant. The breast shape may change slightly with time as the tissues soften and lower pole expands. The difference will not be as drastic as you might notice with an implant placed under the muscle.
All the best
