boxy look after anchor lift

Hello Dr Kim,

I am 4 months post op of a full anchor lift with implants. My pre op size was 34c/d. I received 325cc saline implants o/f to 355 left and 385 right. I do have slight lateral displacement on my right. My question is in regards to the flat edge look on the bottom of my breast; it gives off a boxey look on my lower pole. I feel like they look disfigured, and was wondering if this was normal results with an anchor lift and if they will round out on the bottom with time? What causes this boxy look on the bottom? Is there anything I can do to help them result in a better shape?

It would help if you could send a photo. The implants should settle and the breasts round out with time. A boxy appearance probably has something to do with how the lift was cut but I don't think this is something that happens all the time. But it should look better as it heals.

Thanks for the response. I had attached a photo in the above post, but can send you one if needed. I have a feeling it is the extra tightened skin on the bottom that is giving this boxy look. Does this mean I need to wait for the skin to stretch out more for the flat edge to go away...or might I be stuck looking like this?

I can see the photo now.
I think it will round out as time goes by. It really isn't a bad result at all.

No problem, just try to be patient with it. If after several more months you still don't like the way it looks then I'm sure your surgeon could revise the lift somehow to change the shape.
