They look fine

Implants always look strange in the beginning. It usually takes 3 to 6 months to settle. Don't expect them to look good before then.

Continue massage

Thank you for your pictures. Your augmentation  looks great. I would continue with the massage exercises to help slightly increase the size of the pocket so that implants once the swelling is decreased move and feel a bit more natural. If you have a questions please seek reevaluation by your plastic surgeon

GREAT question to address to your chosen operative surgeon via a  phone call or visit. Since we do not know you or your surgery we should not offer exact massage instructions....

Massaging breasts after augmentation surgery

Let your plastic surgeon know right away if you are experiencing pain or discomfort. There is not need to massage breasts after surgery. In fact, most plastic surgeon would advise against vigorous massage for most breast augmentation surgeries.
