No Symmastia After Breast Augmentation
No symmastia after breast augmentation
Thank you for your question and photograph. You do not have true symmastia as the skin between your breasts is still attached to your breast bone. Enjoy your resultant cleavage now. The natural history of many breast augmentation patients is that over the years the cleavage does become wider which is one of the most common complaints long-term about breast augmentation
I doubt that you will have this problem in the future.
Do I Have Symmastia?
When a patient with implants has symmastia, the implants are touching. There is a clear separation that I note on the photo. Looks like a nice result, don't stress. All the best.

In breast augmentation I have chosen to spend time reviewing photographs with patients to fully understand their expectation of size and shape. Many times this simply raises more questions. I will make measurements and use the implant guides to allow the patient to understand exactly the sizes that are reasonable for their body type and measurements.

implies your pockets are connected and implants together creating the unaboob. If your cleavage is deep and the skin attached to your underlying sternum, you do not have symmastia. If the skin between the breasts is lifted off, it could be a concern.
No, you don't. You have terrific result and there is a clear separation between your breasts with a well defined cleavage. The breasts are simply close together.
No evidence of synmastia
Your implants are quite close together but there is a separation in the mid line. This means that you do not have synmastia. Synmastia occurs when the implant pockets erode into one another and you develop a uniboob.
Thank you for pictures. You have a great result. You do not have symmastia. Symmastia is loss of the natural border of the middle chest creating the look of one wide breast on your chest.
Do I have Synmastia
This is not synmastia. The classic sign of synmastia is " bread loafing" where it looks like the ridges yuo see on the top of a loaf of bread and there is no gap between the left and right breast. The breast mounds are close , but not jooined as one so this is not synmastia.
All the best
