Are my implants still in the process of dropping and will they get softer? (photo)

Drop and Fluff
Soft breast implants after breast augmentation, it takes time.
Having said that,it is common to have implants settle at different rates over different periods of time. They will remain high for at least a few weeks If your pre-existing anatomy has your breast creases or breast folds at different positions, they implants will settle to different places. So your preoperative anatomy has a lot to do with a final result. It may take another 2-4 months to really see where you are.
From your picture, it looks like you have beautiful young skin, so it will take awhile for this to stretch.
I hope you found this helpful. As always, ask your PS first about any questions.

Thank you for the question and photos. With fairly large implants and a tight fit, sometimes settling/softening can take a little longer than the 4 mobnth average. I let patients know that the whole process can take between 2-6 months as everyone is unique. Even from 6 months to 1 year you may notice subtle, continual softening. If you have any concerns pay a visit to your Plastic Surgeon.
All the best

You seem to have a really nice result.
Continue massaging which will help settle everything into a proper place.
The best way to assess and give true advice would an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
best of luck!
