Implants too close together
Implants close together
- You look like a small woman with large implants.
- Yes, they are close together.
- Is this the way they have always been? If so, the situation is stable and nothing needs to be done.
- If they are slowly moving inward, then they are likely to end up sitting on the breast bone touching,
- Call your plastic surgeon and discuss what you can do, e.g. no bra or a separating (thong) bra.
- I would not massage as it may move them inward not outward.
- If the implants continue to move inward, you will need surgery to correct this. best wishes.
Implants too close together
Here are my suggestions.
I would ask you surgeon if he has any suggestions;
Wearing a "throng bra" may help.
Trying to push them to the side and if your surgeon is ok, not wearing a bra for a while may help as well.
If you continue to be concerned there are surgical options available.

Breast implants too close together
However your breast implants to look very close together. Avoiding wearing a bra may help and wearing a special "Thong" bra may help.
Please understand that the natural history of breast implants is that the capsular pocket constricts and becomes smaller and the implants tend to spread with time.
However if you are more than 3 months postoperatively it is unlikely that this problem will be corrected with time and you may need a surgical revision. It is important to discuss this with your plastic surgeon and not rely on the Internet advice.
Implant malplacement and treatment

Are the implants above or under the muscle is also an important piece of information to share. Typically the muscle prevents the implants from crossing the midline. If the implants cross the midline the condition is called synmastia. This will require a surgical correction.
Have you addressed your concerns with your surgeon?
If so and you did not get a satisfactory response seek out a board certified plastic surgeon to evaluate you and render an opinion.
It appears that your implants are close together in the midline although the bra may contribute to the appearance. Massage will not correct this problem. If you wish to improve the appearance you will most likely need surgery. I recommend seeing a plastic surgeon to see if you're a good candidate for surgery.
