Size concern after Augmentation
It is way too early to be concerned about the appearance of your breasts. It takes months for them to fall into their final look. Be patient and follow your surgeon's advice.
Breast Augmentation Recovery
It can take anywhere from 3-6 months for your breasts to fully heal and drop/settle into the new position. So, for now, be patient. I know it's scary, but based on your photos, it looks as if you will have terrific results. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Congratulations on your new breasts!
Breast acquires better projection after edema is gone
following days after breast augmentation there is edema. This edema goes around
the implant. When it gets absorbed the breast acquires a better projection. What
many women are afraid of is that after the edema gets absorbed the size will be
reduced. What happens is exactly the opposite, because the volume is reduced but
the breast acquires better projection and it makes it look bigger. I think you
have to be patient and very probably you will have a good breast shape. Discuss
with your doctor the possibility to put a pressure band at the upper pole of the
breasts. He will be the best person to advice you about it. Don’t worry, be

Thank you for your question and photographs, and it appears that you will have a very nice result. After placement of implants, the overall appearance of the breasts will change dramatically over the next several months, as the implants drop, and the overlying tissue stretches to accommodate the extra volume. It is common to be emotional about your results this early after surgery. Your overall size should not change dramatically with the reduction in swelling. I know waiting is difficult, but judge your results at 4-6 months after surgery as most of your breast changes should have occurred by then. Hope this helps
Will my breasts go smaller if the swelling goes down? I have ultra high silicone 495cc.
Thank you for your question. It is normal for your breasts to be an odd shape and firm after surgery. Over the next few weeks the implants will start to settle, much of the volume on the upper breast comes down into the bottom of the breast and they become softer.
It can take a good 3 months to see the results.
All the best,
Will my breast go smaller..?
Congratulations on your breast augmentation.
Your breast shape was good prior to surgery.
Your outcome will be great once the implants settle.
It is very common to have awkward looking breasts soon after surgery. Implants are riding high and you have tissue swelling. As implants settle in their pockets, your breasts may appear to look larger.
Please allow 3-6 months for implants to settle in the pockets.
Be patient and follow your plastic surgeon's post-op instructions.
