Breast implant sitting too high
you for submitting your question. You are very early in your recovery
from breast augmentation
implants will soften and your breasts will change over the next several
weeks. Your breasts will look larger as the implants "settle" lower on
the chest wall. Final results take 6 months. Discuss your concerns with
Hi Loving Mummy
It may be as simple and your right side settling faster than your left. Unless something drastic is happening, I advise all patients to wait out 6 months before getting too anxious about final results. The massage will help, and an implant stabiliser band may also help.

Just remember that no 2 breasts ever look the same and no 2 breasts ever heal at the same rate. Best to give your body adequate time to heal and to follow up closely with your operating surgeon so you can be examined in person. Good luck!
Breast Implant Positioning
You did not mention how far out you are from surgery but based on your surgical dressings I would guess that your surgery is pretty recent?? If so, you must give yourself more time to heal. It is quite common for the implants to appear to be sitting too high and they will drop down over time. Follow-up with your plastic surgeon and he/she can guide you through recovery.

I would discuss this with the surgeon who performed the procedure to ease yuor concerns.
It is too early to comment on the final result though, and time will tell. It is likley the implant will descend to some degree and the result be what you are looking for.
All the best
You cannot assess your final result for a minimum of 3 months, and it's not uncommon to have some healing asymmetry. Be patient, and discuss your concerns with your surgeon. Best of luck.
Breast implant sitting too high?
Hi, LovingMummy. Thanks for your question and photos. Based on your photos, your surgery seems very recent. It takes 6 weeks for the most of the swelling to decrease. It may take up to 3-6 months for implants to settle. Please follow your plastic surgeon's post-op instruction. Good luck with your recovery.
Breast implant settling over time
Thanks for posting your question. I am happy to try and help you. It is
important to remember that a board certified plastic surgeon will be your best
resource when it comes to an accurate assessment of your situation, and
Having said that, it is way too early to make any decisions about how your
breast will look. It takes weeks to months to see what is happening. Also the
PS technique will also influence how quickly they settle, as well as the size
of implants, your natural tissue quality and characteristics. As they settle,
your breast mounds will dramatically change. Then after they have settled you
may always go larger if you like.

It looks like your are very early after surgery. It takes a month or two for the muscle to relax and allow the implant to drop into the pocket made for it. Ask your Plastic Surgeon about straps and/or massage and stretching that may facilitate this sooner. Best of luck.
Thank you for your question and photos. How long has it been since your surgery? It appears as though it is still very early in the healing process. You need to give yourself about three months before assessing the results of your surgery. Your implants should drop and your breasts should reduce in swelling during this time. Please be patient and follow the instructions of your surgeon closely. It is not uncommon for the breasts to drop at different rates as well.
All the best,
