New Breast Implants Will Drop Over the First 3 Months

How new breast implants drop, breast implants too high, high riding breast implants, Plastic surgeon new york city, breast enlargement new york city, dr nicholas vendemia, mas, manhattan aesthetic surgery

Breast augmentation was officially the most popular cosmetic procedure in 2010, and for a very good reason… the results are fantastic!

Those fantastic results take a little time though. It’s very common for brand new breast implants to sit a high on the chest, but this shouldn’t worry you. There are a few reasons why implants sit high right after surgery, but the most common reason is that your surgeon put them there on purpose to compensate for the fact that your skin will stretch over the first 2-3 months after the procedure. As the skin stretches, the implants descend into their final perfect position.

In the above picture series, you can see how brand new breast implants drop over the first 3 months after surgery.

1 Month

The implants are sitting fairly high on the chest, and they are quite swollen. The nipples are pointing down just ever so slightly because of the high position of the implants, and this gives the illusion that the breasts are sagging a bit. This is entirely normal and expected at only one month after surgery.

2 Months

You can see that the implants have descended a few centimeters, and the nipples are in the center of the implant. The illusion of sagging has disappeared, as has most of the swelling.

3 Months

The implants have dropped into their ideal position, and the swelling has completely resolved. The nipples are in the center of the implant, and they are now pointing just slightly skyward. This new position reflects the final few centimeters of implant descent, and the ideal position for breast implants in relation to the overlying breast.

Get to Know Your “Girls”! How to Do a Proper Self Breast Exam!

Breast cancer awareness : breast implants : breast reconstruction : self breast examIt’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

And you know what that means… lots of pink ribbons, and lots of reminders to do your self breast exams!

Every woman over 20 should  know how to do a proper self breast exam. The best treatment for breast cancer is early detection, so make sure to take five minutes every month to do a good exam.

Pick a day that’s easy to remember like the “first Friday” each month and stick to it!

For all you ladies who’ve had a little surgical enhancement, this is for you too! Remember, breast implants don’t cause breast cancer, or make it harder to detect breast cancer. In fact, breast implants are still the most popular method of breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery.

Check out this great “how to” VIDEO on how give yourself a proper exam!

3 Important Things to Keep in Mind While Watching this Video

  1. You should be bare chested for your exam. Don’t try to do the exam through your shirt or bra like she does in the video.
  2. Use concentric circles to make sure you examine the entire breast, and use the same pattern every time so you don’t miss a spot.
  3. Don’t skip the armpit step. It’s really important to feel those lymph nodes too.
