Snoopy breasts after implants?

Hi, I had BA 3 days ago so I understand it is early days and they need time to drop and settle more but I'm just seeking further information and hopefully reassurance everything is okay! My surgeon said I didn't have tuberous breasts but constricted lower poles for both breasts. He suggested 385cc round textured silicone gel dual plane and lower both creases. I'm wearing a strap and no bra at the moment and will continue for next 6 weeks as per nurses advice. I'll wear a bra when I leave the house. I've uploaded before photos and 3 days post op. Do you think I will drop and fill out my new creases over time?? I'm freaking out a bit as they look a bit square, snoopy look and are pretty high and have no lower pole fullne

    Hi. Dr Ray Goh from Brisbane here. At 3 days post op, it is quite common to see a significant degree of swelling in the upper pole region. This is especially true when muscle dissection was carried out in a dual plane pocket placement. The swelling in the upper pole in general should settle by around 6 weeks and the lower pole should fill out more as the implant settles in. 
    I hope this helps to reassure.

    Good Afternoon,

    During the first 12 weeks of recovery following breast augmentation surgery, you will notice many changes to your breast shape, size and placement. In particular, your skin will be expanding and the implant will be dropping into the pocket to create more lower pole fullness. The strap will assist the implant to drop. Swelling is also a major factor and can take the first few weeks to subside.

    It can feel like a slow recovery at times, but hang in there and contact your surgeon's rooms with any queries.
    I wish you all the best for your recovery.

    Kind Regards,

    Dr Kourosh Tavakoli
