2 weeks post op, some advices:
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling. Kind regards,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-

If you're already settling at two weeks post-op, there is still a significant amount of healing to occur over the next 6-12 months, though of course most of the major changes occur early in the first weeks to month or two. Still, complete healing really does take 6-12 months (think about scars fading and how long that takes), and you can understandably expect some degree of additional dropping and settling.
You can certainly get to a desired "look" or implant position "early," but that does NOT mean it is final. That is the crux of the matter here, and what you are asking about. I share your concern, but there is only one thing to do right now . . .
My advice would be to wear a supportive bra (not a push-in cleavage type bra) that will help to slow the additional drop you might be concerned about. But, see your surgeon regularly and follow his/her advice, as it is him or her to whom you will likely go for revision if that is necessary. Best wishes! Dr. Tholen
