Q&A: WILL BREASTS LOOK LARGER AS BREAST IMPLANTS DROP?

"I had a full Breast lift and Breast implant surgery 4 days ago. I requested to go to a full C or small D. My results have been great. My nipples are now where they should be, and I no longer have droopy breasts. My breasts however, do not look as large as I would have hoped. My PS put in 450cc’s memory gel silicone under the muscle. I started off as a B cup. Will my breasts look larger as the implants drop, or should I have gone for a larger size?"

 

DR. POUSTI: Dropping of Breast Implants

You are very early out of surgery so I would recommend that you do not worry about the size just yet. The breast shape and size does change as the implant drops into the pocket. Many patients have told me that it does look bigger after things have settled. Enjoy your results and allow yourself time to heal before making the decision that you are too small. You can discuss that with your surgeon after 6 months or so when everything is settled.
