I think you have very big implants and are still swollen so give it more time....It doesn't look like symmastia for far, though....

Posted photos show NO symmastia only cleave swelling at 2 weeks post op. BTW the result looks great! Please follow up with your surgeon.

Symmastia is a complication of large breast augmentation when an attempt has been  made to create a cleavage. Looking at the pictures, you do not seem to have this problem but you should be examined by your plastic surgeon and he or she should make that determination. You should always use this site only for general information. 

Symmastia after Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question and pictures.

No, I do not see evidence of symmastia. It is very likely that you have swelling present in the cleavage area;  as the swelling resolves, the appearance of this area will likely improve. I would suggest that you keep in communication with your plastic surgeon and/or visit with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area for follow-up care.

Best wishes.

With symmastia, the implants are touching. I see a clear separation of the implants. These implants look rather large and that explains the central fill. All the best.

Your implants are very close together, but from the photos you do not appear to have symmastia. However, it doesn't hurt to ask your surgeon when you go in for your next follow up visit.
