Also know, how long does it take for silicone implants to drop?
As your skin, breast tissue and muscles relax, your breast implants will settle or “drop and fluff” into their intended position. This usually takes 3 to 4 months, but can take up to 6 months if you receive larger implants or have firmer than average tissues to begin with.
Secondly, what happens when implants drop and fluff? The drop occurs as the muscles relax during recovery, causing the implants to shift into the right position over time gradually. This is also when the “fluff” occurs, which is the filling in of the lower breast region beneath the nipple that promotes breast projection and natural-looking breast shape.
Similarly, do breast implants get smaller when they drop?
Breast Implants Start High Your breasts may also look smaller than you were hoping for. In time, these tissues will relax and loosen, and the implant will fall into a more natural-looking position. Your breast size may also increase slightly. Plastic surgeons sometimes call this “dropping and fluffing”.
How do I know if my implants have dropped?
The bottom line is that you should look at the position of the implants and decide if you like the amount of fullness on top (if it is still too much, then you want them to drop more). If you're happy with where they are sitting, then it is time to LOCK THEM IN.
