Breast Augmentation Bellevue: How Long Does It Take For Silicone Implants To Drop?

By February 8, 2021 No Comments
Immediately following breast augmentation surgery, the breasts will look bigger and fuller. However, the position of the implants becomes distorted as you heal due to swelling, inflammation, and the tightness of the muscle. It is completely normal for the implants to sit higher on the chest after breast augmentation. They will eventually drop into a more natural position. How long does it take for silicone implants to drop? First off, it should be noted that your breast implants may not drop at the same time. It is not uncommon for one breast implant to drop quicker than the other. This is usually due to the natural anatomy of the breast and is no cause for concern. Breast implants usually take around three months to drop. Based on other factors, this time will vary between patients. For example, patients with a strong pectoralis muscle may see implants take longer to drop. Gummy bear implants may also drop sooner than traditional silicone or saline breast implants.  Generally, breast implants drop within a few months of surgery. Results of breast augmentation are considered final about nine to twelve months following surgery. Dr. Jonov may also instruct you to massage your breasts to promote dropping and to alleviate swelling and other factors.  To schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
