Breast Implants take about 3 months to drop after Breast Augmentation

Thank you for your question. Your concerns are quite normal.

Your breast implants will look much better in another month as it takes about 3 months for the implants to drop after breast augmentation.

Ask your doctor about "Breast Implant Displacement Exercises" as massaging the implants often helps speed the softening and dropping of the implant.

If the implants feel hard and have not softened at all in 7 weeks be sure to see your doctor for a check up.

Breast Implants “Dropping and Fluffing”?

Thank you for the question.

I have seen breast implants take several months (3 to 6 months on average) to “drop and fluff”.  Usually, this movement of the breast implant causes the breast to look larger in general.

I hope this helps.

Drop and fluff after breast augmentation

Thank you for your question. Drop and fluff refers to post-operative period in which the breasts begin to descend and fills out the lower half of the breast. It may take several months for this to happen and can be encouraged with breast massage and compression. It may appear that the breast enlarges as the lower aspect of the breast fills out (at the expense of the upper portion of the breast).
