"I had a breast lift with augmentation and ended up with a 36c, and I’m almost 1 month post op and unhappy. Will I get bigger with the 400cc I received? 5’6, 160lbs."
DR. POUSTI: Breast Size after Surgery?
Thank you for the question. At this stage (is one month after surgery) it is too early to evaluate the results of your procedure.
I have found that it is very difficult to predict whether the breasts will look smaller or larger as breast implants settle. One of the factors involved is swelling; as swelling dissipates the breasts may appear smaller. On the other hand, as breast implants settle (“drop and fluff”), the breasts may appear larger (believe it or not).
I would suggest continued patience and follow up with your plastic surgeon.
