How Long Before My Breast Implants Settle After Breast Reconstruction?

Breast implants take time to settle after they are placed within your breasts. At first, your breast implants may look and feel like they are positioned a little too high, and your breasts may seem to have too much fullness in the upper portions.

If you choose to have your breasts reconstructed after mastectomy, breast implants can create an attractive, feminine breast shape with long-lasting results. At The Breast Center at Park Meadows Cosmetic Surgery, we perform implant-based reconstruction in phases. First, your breast tissue will be prepared for the implants with a tissue expander. In the second phase, the tissue expander is removed and the breast implants are placed, then they are allowed to settle for several months. The final stage may include nipple reconstruction and any refinement of the results you and the plastic surgeon decide to pursue. Our goal is always to provide you with advanced care and an outstanding aesthetic result, and every step of the way, we are working to produce breast reconstruction results that will allow you to feel confident, beautiful and whole.

Breast reconstruction involves many personal decisions, and our experienced and compassionate plastic surgeons are committed to providing you with guidance and support as you make these important decisions.
