Why Do My Implants Look the Same when I Added 143cc? (photo)

Hi, A few weeks ago I was worry and wondering if going from 390cc to 550cc was going to make me look "fake", I had my surgery 18 days ago and instead of looking fake I thing I look the same and not change is showing; at the same time I had lipo of my lower abdomen and flanks and this should even help me to look bigger on the top ( I think...) but I don't see a big difference; I'm 5 9' and 140 pounds and the implants are under the muscle. Thanks Cindy

Implants after revision

At least from your photos, you look larger. Of course an exam in person and reviewing your pre-op photos would be best.

Why Do My Implants Look the Same when I Added 143cc

The photos are not taken from the same angle, and the arms are positioned differently in each photo,  so they are somewhat less than ideal for comparison, but I do see a difference. Have some patience, allow some more time to pass, and look at the pre-op and post-op photos in your surgeon's office and I am quite certain the difference will be quite apparent. 

Thanks for the question and best wishes.
