At 4 weeks you still don't see full final results. Your breasts will continue to change a little (not a lot) over the next 3-4 months. However, when it comes to cup size, because most of the swelling is gone, I would not expect much of a change in your volume, just change in shape and position of your implants
When implants are first inserted, they sit high up because your tissues are tight and gravity hasn't taken effect. Over time, natural tissue expansion occurs to allow the implants to fall into place. By this time, your breasts will have taken on a more natural contour, where the lower breasts become softer and rounder. Please wait at least four months for this to happen.This process tends to occur sooner in one breast than the other, so don't be alarmed if you find that your left drops before the right or vice versa.
Thank you for your breast implant question.
- As time goes by, your implants will settle lower on your chest wall,
- The position will look more natural,
- The size will not increase but as the muscle relaxes there will be more lower show of the implant.
- Hope this helps. Best wishes.
Thank you for your question. Yes, there will still be changes up to several months out from surgery. As the tissues relax and the implants settle from the effects of gravity, you will get more projection in the lower part of the breast. What ultimately determines cup size is the projection of the breast off the chest wall at the level of the nipple. Thus, you may ultimately get a little more "fluff" out of the lower aspect of the breast as things settle.
Best of luck.
Thank you for your question. The answer is yes, 4 weeks is very early after breast augmentation beneath the chest muscle. Your implants will definitely changed shape over the next 2 months and as they drop beneath the nipple areola they often will look larger.
Thank you for your picture. It is unlikely that your implants will become larger as the weeks pass.

Congratulations on having undergone the breast augmentation procedure. I believe that the phenomenon of “dropping and fluffing” is real; it occurs several weeks to several months after breast augmentation surgery. The breasts appear larger as the implants "settle" lower on the chest wall. The nipple/areola complexes appear higher on the breast mounds as this occurs. Best wishes.
