Breast Augmentation - Post Op Swelling
Thank you for your question and photos. You are still very early in the post-operative period. It typically takes 3 - 6 months for the swelling to subside and and implants to settle into proper position. The implants may swell asymmetrically, but usually settle evenly. Please discuss your concerns with your board certified plastic surgeon. Also, make sure you follow all of your plastic surgeons post-operative instructions regarding level of physical activity and use of a support bra. Hope this helps and good luck with your recovery.
Early in post operative course
While it is early in your post operative course, the shapes of breasts as well as position of implants will change over the next few months. On the whole it looks like you are progressing nicely. Symmetry is hard to assess when one shoulder is upward and you are slightly turned from the camera. Your plastic surgeon will be your best resource for evaluating your post operative progress. Congratulations on your surgery.
How does it look?
Thank you for your question and providing a photo. It appears that you are progressing normally. I tell all my patients it takes 4-5 months for implants to fully settle and all the swelling to resolve. Best of luck
Early post op breast lift
Hi,Your wounds seem to be healing nicely and the areolas too. It is impossible to comment further as one arm is up and the other down at your side - both arms need to be at your side to evaluate symmetry.
