DR. POUSTI: Breast Implant too Big?

Thank you for the question. If you are able to provide pictures it may be helpful. Remember you are only 5 days out of your surgery. At this point, many patients would find themselves concerned about the appearance of the breasts. I would suggest continued follow-up with your plastic surgeon. If I understand the situation correctly it may take months (especially with larger implants) for the implants to settle into the pockets (and “fill the breasts”).

I hope this helps.
