In my experience pectoralis muscle contraction encourages implant dropping. Of course you do not want to overdo muscle contractions for fear of irritating the muscle. However in my opinion and he pectoralis muscle activity should encourage dropping of your implant and not prevent it.
Thank you for your question and picture! I agree it looks like a its taking a little more time to settle because of over using that muscle. Keep in touch with your plastic surgeon and follow all of his post care! Best of luck!

I would suspect that your implant not dropping on the R hand side goes along with being R handed and using that side more.
My experience is that muscle spasm after surgery will keep the implant high as it is working against gravity.
I would follow your surgeon's advice - and avoid gardening for now.
Thank you for the question. I would tend to agree with your nurse; in my opinion, excessive contraction of the pectoralis major muscle may delay “settling” of the breast implants after breast augmentation surgery. Consider decreasing your “work” with your pectoralis major muscle and follow-up with your plastic surgeon for best advice/recommendations. Best wishes; hopefully you will be very pleased with the longer-term outcome of the procedure performed.
