5 days post-op: breasts too close together? (photo)
Doctor Answers 11
Wait for Swelling to Go Down
Your pre- and postoperative photos are helpful. It does appear that your breasts naturally sat close together, and that is probably why they appear to be very close together so soon after breast augmentation. I would expect the appearance to change as the postoperative swelling reduces and the implants begin to settle into place. Of course, if you're concerned, it is always fine to discuss this issue with your plastic surgeon. Questions after the procedure are normal and expected, and asking can help put your mind at ease.
Tight cleavage after breast augmentation
Your natural breast structure is for a tight cleavage. The normal swelling after surgery probably explains the even tighter cleavage that you are now experiencing. This will probably resolve with time. Check in with your surgeon just to be sure.
Best of luck!

- Your breasts are quite close together - but part of the appearance may be swelling.

1 week post op, some advices:
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

You can certainly talk with your Plastic Surgeon about your concerns and they will advise you. The pictures do not demonstrate a problem however, just close cleavage at this point.
All the best
