9 Weeks Post Op, Will my Breast Implants Drop More?

Q: I was a 34 A and I am now a 34 C. I got 450 CC saline implants in both breasts. I am 9 weeks post op and my breast implants have dropped since my surgery. I still think they are high. Is this progress normal? Will they continue to drop? Stretch marks have appeared about 2 weeks ago. Anything I can do to help with the stretch marks?

A: Great questions.  I expect the implants to continue to drop a bit.  You should definitely talk to your surgeon, some of us recommend the use of a strap to encourage the implants to settle into a lower position.  The stretch mark issue is a little trickier.  Stretch marks are basically scars formed by rapid skin expansion.  You can’t make them go away, but frequent massage can help them mature and look less obvious.  Talk to your surgeon for recommendations.
