Unhappy 6 wks post op and breasts still high, square, and flat :-(

Hello everyone, I've been reading lots of posts the past few weeks and at times have felt better bc others have had some of the same experiences but as time goes on and I've seen little change I'm starting to get depressed and worried that I might need a revision.

I had my surgery about 6 and a half weeks ago in Venezuela (bc i was living there for a few months). I had very little bruising but lots of swelling. My ps had a physical therapist perform some massage and ultrasound for the first two weeks, he said everything was fine and I came back home shortly after. Woke up at around 4 weeks to lots of swelling and pain in left breast, and it felt much harder than the right, emailed ps with some pics and he said it was nothing. Was super scared it was capsular contracture so went to a ps here who said it's too early for that but sent me for an ultrasound to rule out a hematoma or Seroma. Tests came back clear and about a week later the pain went away but they are both still so high and hard and I'm freaking out that maybe the placement was too high. Also heard that textured implants stay where they are and don't really drop so I'm freaking out that I'll be stuck with these very clearly fake looking breasts right under my collar bone. Right one is also extremely flat looking and square on top and the bottom and the bottom feels empty and is floppy looking. It's so hard to find any clothes to wear that conceal how freakish it looks and I just wonder what's going on.

I'm sorry for posting so long but when I look through others' post op pictures and hear stories about how almost everyone has semi-normal looking boobs after a few weeks and I can't help but feeling like something's wrong.

6 wks is still fairly early. I know I'm earlier, but I bf my kids and was already stretched plus I'm pretty wimpy so I don't much in terms of pectoral development! I have textured implants too and they've definitely dropped and fluffed

I also had some extra stretchy skin but bc of the lift it was all removed and now as tight as it gets. I am pretty athletic so I'm hoping that my tight muscles have something to do with it but I'm not sure that would make them high, hard, and square.

I am a month out and my left is still high and flat. I think it's because that's the side I tote my kids on (hoping anyway). I think being athletic would keep yours tighter for longer.

Hi I'm 6 weeks today and mine haven't dropped at all yet and are still very firm. I see my ps tomorrow but I know he'll tell me it's normal because from the beginning he's told me it can take a year for them to completely settle and soften. I'm licky that mine were never super high to begin with but I can imagine your frustration I hope some great changes come your way soon hang in there!!
