Post op sizing - what can I expect? (Photos)

Will the swelling go down?
Thanks for your photo and question. You have a nice result thus far. Your swelling will go down every day after surgery. The initial swelling can last for 4-6 weeks and more subtle swelling can last about 6 months. Patients tend to "grow into" their implants. The drop, the tissue settles down around them, the muscles accept the implants, etc. The 9 and 12 month post op appointments typically have VERY happy patients. At that point you'll be able to assess your cleavage. Stay in touch with your surgeon in the meantime. He or she wants you to be safe and happy! I wish you well.
You got a small implant, and you absolutely needed the volume to correct the deflated appearance preop (sorry, no offense). You will be swollen for a good month or so after surgery and that will continue to get better over the next several months even. The implants, if round/smooth, will typically drop and soften as well. I would expect you to have a great result. Ask PS about massaging and wearing a compressive band/wrap if your surgery was recent.
