What Happens After my Breast Reductions surgery?

What happens if I have my 690cc breast implants (D cup) I got 2 weeks ago removed, and get my old 390cc (C cup) ones? Will my breasts look stretched if I change to a smaller size implant? I hate the size of my new implants and need help.

ANSWER

Immediate changes to your implant size

Thanks for your question - In terms of skin elasticity usually two weeks is not enough time to cause significant permanent changes to your skin. However, the surgical changes to your implant pocket can cause problems. The pocket is likely too large now for your original implants. This may mean the pocket may need to be reduced. You should have a careful discussion with your plastic surgeon about your goals, your concerns and what motivated you initially to change your implant size as well as what your current concerns are. I hope this helps.
