Breast implant settling after breast augmentation
Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try
and help you.
It is common to have different women's implants settle at different rates over different
periods of time. They will remain high for at least a few weeks. If your
pre-existing anatomy has your breast creases or breast folds at different
positions, they implants will settle to different places. So your preoperative
anatomy has a lot to do with a final result. So does the skill of your plastic
surgeon, size of breast implants, saline and silicone settle differently, skin
quality and activity levels. You are still early so give it some more time. It
may take 2-4 months to really see where you are.

From what I can see in the pictures it does not appear that you are bottoming out. Your post augmentation appearance and differences between your breasts are consistent with you preoperative photo / asymmetries. Discuss your concerns with you surgeon.
Thank you for the question and the photographs. Please continue to wear a bra that provides good support and follow up with your plastic surgeon for an in-person evaluation and a discussion of your concerns. Best wishes.
The two breasts are definitely different to begin with. I would follow with your surgeon to be followed closely. It just might be normal asymmetry.
Not bottoming out
From what I can see in your pictures, you had a good result with your breast enlargement, and there is no particular evidence of bottoming out.
Bottoming out after breast augmentation
Good question and thank you for submitting it. My patients are instructed to allow full healing and wear the surgical bra after breast augmentation to let the capsule fully form. Your pictures don;t seem to be evident of this problem. The supportive bra can prevent or limit many of the problems associated with implant malposition.
Am I bottoming out
By looking at the pictures that you included, in your preoperative picture the right information decrease has a very obtuse angle to the chest wall compared to the acute angle on the left breast. This has been magnified with implants. Follow up with your operating surgeon and where a good supportive bra early on to keep the implant for migrating too low in the pocket. Good luck.
Thank you for the question and the photographs. While pictures cannot take the place of an in-person evaluation it would appear as though the deformity you are troubled by, the lower right fold being lower, was present in the pre-operative picture. Continue to wear a bra that provides good support and follow up with your plastic surgeon for an in-person evaluation and a discussion of your concerns. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
From your pre-operative photos, it appears your right breast fold was slightly lower to begin with. Your implants look like they are resting at a symmetrical position. Wear a good support bra to help take the pressure off of the inframammary fold and address your concerns with your plastic surgeon.
