How Breast Implants Drop and Settle

How breast implants settle over time after breast augmentation surgeryDropping, settling, and “fluffing”, are the most common terms used to describe the single most important phenomenon in breast augmentation surgery.

As the skin beneath the nipple stretches, it allows the breast to take on a rounder, more attractive shape, and also allows the implant to drop or settle into a more natural position. This improves the slope in the upper pole of the breast, and is the final step towards having your true “final result”. For most women, this settling process is 70-80% complete around 3-4 months after surgery, and 100% complete at 9-12 months.
