Q&A: WHAT DOES “DROP AND FLUFF” REFER TO IN A BREAST AUGMENTATION?

"I went with 325cc and wish I had went with 350cc. Did I make a mistake? When can I go back for bigger ones?"

DR. POUSTI: The phenomenon of “dropping and fluffing” occurs several weeks to several months after breast augmentation surgery. The breasts appear larger as the implants “settle” lower on the chest wall. The nipple/areola complexes appear higher on the breast mounds as this occurs. Best wishes.
