Breast Implants Should Be Comfortable
Your breast implants will soften and settle into a natural position over time.
When breast implants are removed, do they become larger?
The implants relax or “fluff” into the lower breast areas after they have fallen, taking on the natural teardrop form that is more projected. With natural contours, the breasts begin to become wider and take on the appearance that the patient had in mind when she began the procedure.
After breast augmentation, how long does it take for the breasts to drop?

Is it possible for you to feel the implants fall out?
You should be able to feel the edge of the implant at or just above the inframammary crease until they’ve finished “dropping” and the lower pole has finished “fluffing.” Since breasts are almost never symmetrical, the implant in the one with more room (a longer gap between the nipple and the inframammary crease) will normally drop faster.
