Is it normal for one incision to sit below implant crease at 2 weeks post op? Will implant drop into place? (photo)

Asymmetric settling after augmentation
is common and you should let your surgeon help advise you on what maneuvers are best to help with improving this. In my practice, sport bras or leisure bras are used with the band of the higher side pulled over the top of the mound to help push that side down and still support the other side in addition to downward massage on the higher side. This is done until my patient is convinced they are level on top as that is what the world sees... the upper poles. If you have textured implants, it will be harder to move them around. Talk to your surgeon for instructions on what is best as he should share your desires for the best outcome possible.
Drop & Fluff- Incision Placement
Your breasts appear fairly symmetric and you have a great result so far. Until the implants completely drop the implant can be positioned slightly higher than the incision. Each side may drop at a slightly different rate and will continue to even out over the next few months. Let your Plastic Surgeon know if you have any concerns.
All the best
Thank you for your question.
It will take time for your breasts to heal and drop into position, One breast may drop faster than the other.Continue to follow your surgeon's instructions and contact him or her with any concerns. Best wishes.

Yes, breast implant massage is not helpful, so you can stop. Time will tell if they end up at the same level. Best of luck!
