You should be aware that a significant percentage of patients at your stage of recovery will feel that the breasts are "different". I routinely ask my patients to wait at least 3-6 months before evaluating the end results of the breast augmentation surgery. This waiting time allows patients to (usually) physically and psychologically adapt to the new body image.In my opinion, the "drop and fluff” phenomenon does hold some validity; as breast implants “settle”. Although online consultants cannot predict whether or not you will be pleased with the long-term outlook, of the procedure performed, it is safe to predict that the breasts will change.
In your case, I would suggest continued patience. Continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.
Asymmetry after augmentation
Congrats on your augmentation, smile2269! Some asymmetry after surgery is not uncommon and may have been there before. Often times if an implant is placed submuscularly and an implant is lower on one side it may be because the person is right hand or left hand dominant and the implant is being pushed by constant use of that one arm. Check with your board certified plastic surgeon and see what they think of the asymmetry. Best of luck, MMT
Breast Augmentation Appearance at 2 Weeks #breastaugmentation
- 13 days after a breast augmentation is much too early to see the final appearance of your breast implants.
- I don't think you need to be worried. As the implants settle into place, and the lower pole breast skin stretches, some patients notice that the implants settle at different rates.
- In a couple months, you will be much closer to seeing your final results.
- Hang in there, and be patient!
- Thanks for sharing!
