Why are Breasts Appearing Flat After Implant Exchange
It's still early in your healing process. #Healing will continue for 2-3 months following your #Augmentation #Mastopexy procedure. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will also be changing.
But, it can be up to one year see your final result. Your doctor may require you to move or massage the implants within the breast pockets during the #postoperative period. #Textured implants do not require breast massage. You will be informed about this at your post-operative visit.
Also, the two breasts commonly heal quite differently so #assymetry is not unusual. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial shape. After complete #healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of the doctor or the nursing staff.

I suspect you have a good bit of swelling which is distorting the true shape of your breasts. Give it about 12 weeks to really shape up, and you will most likely see a lot of improvement in that time! Otherwise you could switch to implants with a greater projection if you aren't happy at the 12 week mark!
Where did your breasts go
This is a difficult question to answer without knowing all of the details of your surgery. During the lift procedure your surgeon likely removed some breast tissue to help shape the breast. Switching from a 380cc under muscle to a 485 above muscle will clearly give you nearly a cup size increase in implant projection(assuming they were same/similar projection). This question would be best answered by your plastic surgeon whom performed the operation
