Ridges at front of boobs after implants. Will this settle down? (Photo)

Thank you for the question and photos. It appears you may have had your breast creases lowered slightly so that the demarcation where a previous fold was is still there. If that is the case you could expect those bands of constriction to soften and fade over time. I recommend that you follow up with your Plastic Surgeon however and let them advise you in order to ensure you do not have any other issues.

it seems a double bubble line, or animation deformity.
The implants' diameter are wider than your original, so the old under lines are not vanished.
But please wait until 3 months after the surgery. And then talk with your surgeon.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Right now, you are very early on in the post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Please Express your concerns to your surgeon so he/she can examine you at this time. Then reassess final result at 6 months.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
When patients have a high and tight fold or a bit of breast droop the transition between the breast implant and the breast tissue can stay visible creating what is called a "double bubble". You are still very early after surgery, and there is nothing that needs to be done now. Once your are completely healed this may be less obvious as your tissue stretches and your implants settle. If is is still bothersome there are options of raising the implants or possibly something like fat transfer to soften the transition.
Discuss what your are seeing with your surgeon and then readdress it once you are fully healed to see what, if anything, should be done.
