1 day post op- Which changes to expect?

Hi there. I had extra high profile round textured silicone implants but they are sitting very far apart and not as high as I expected.-Also I'm hoping they will take a more defined round shape. Am I on the right track? I've attached a before and after collage pic, top pics before op and bottom 1 day post op . Much appreciated

    Hi Sam Sandra.
    At Day 1 Post-Op, it is way too early to judge your eventual result. There is still a lot of swelling, and the implants have not settled into position. In terms of "not been as high as you would have expected", looking at your pre-op photos, your breast mound is positioned not very high to begin with. An implant will be able to boost only what you have to begin with, unless a very large implant is used. There is a fine balance (and often a trade-off) between achieving the ideal breast size and the ideal breast shape. I would give it some time to see how the implants settle, and continue follow ups and discussion with your surgeon.
    All the very best in your recovery.
