You are going to see the difference just after the procedure. However it is necessary to wait for some time in order to see the final result. After the breast augmentation operation the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long therefore you receive a mild anesthesia. Since the anesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems associated with anesthetic agents after the operation. This is especially important and can be achieved with only a team of plastic surgeons like we have. After the operation you will be advised to wear a corset in order to reduce the edema. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operations but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.

Thank you for your question.It is important to consult with your surgeon with any questions or concerns you may have because they know your medical history and surgery best, as well as what you looked like preoperatively. It may be that your right breast dropped into its pocket quicker than the left or you may have had more droopiness in the right breast preoperatively. I would continue to massage the top of the left breast to help it drop, your doctor may even give you a foam wedge to help push the implant down. I would wait at least 3-6 months then reevaluate your results. If at that point you are still unhappy, you may need to discuss a revision or a breast lift to even out the breasts.
Best of luck in your recovery!

Thank you for your question and photo. At 6 weeks you are not seeing your final results yet. Asymmetries are common and it appears as though your right breast and nipple may have been a bit lower pre operatively. It may take a little more time for your implant to settle into the lower pole on that side. I recommend that you follow up with your Plastic Surgeon and try to wait until 6 months before evaluating your results.
All the best
