Ask you surgeon how you can make the mounds closer
if you have smooth round implants as the textured anatomic implants are not supposed to move like that. I am a believer in massage and band use and my patients are the proof to me that its effective. If you can get your implants to stretch and move more, you should be able to have cleavage with a push up bra.
Hello and thank you for your question. Like you mentioned yourself, it is still very early in the healing process and some implants can take anywhere from weeks to months to "drop and fluff" and settle in to your chest. Your healing process looks to be going very well and I am confident you will be happy with your cleavage when it is all said and done.
If you continue to have worries or are not satisfied with your results, then my advice is to keep up with your post-op follow-ups with your plastic surgeon and communicate how you feel and what your expectations were going into the surgery, and what your options are now. Hopefully he or she can help.

I appreciate your question.
Right now, you are 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!
