White marks after BA? (Photos)

Wait for some time
The final appearance, shape, and movement are not exactly the same as normal breasts. The surgically enlarged breasts do not move in the same way as normal breasts. They tend to be firmer. The contours are usually somewhat different than normal breasts. In some patients these discrepancies may be rather noticeable. Although every effort is made to place the implants symmetrically, complete symmetry is rarely achieved. Immediately after surgery, the breasts are swollen and firmer. The final shape and size is approximated after 2 to 3 months, but up to one year may be required for the end result.
Stretch Marks after breast enlargement
Some patients can develop new stretch marks after surgery. Usually they start with a red colour and than fade to end white.
In your case the stretch marks were obviously present before but now with implant and swelling look more noticeable. Hopefully you will see an improvement when the swelling goes down.
White marks after BA
rarely stretch marks can appear after augmention mammaplasty, or they may have already been there but barely noticable. new striae tend to be reddish and can later fade. do you have a sp[ray on tan ? show it to your surgeon so it can be followed. Time will tell.

Thank you for your question and photos. Old stretch marks have the whitish colour you see. when new, stretch marks appear dark red or purple and fade over years. While you are swollen and tissues inflamed you may be noticing skin irregularities more than before but you should expect things to settle and become less noticeable over time.
