Every woman’s body reacts to surgical procedures in different ways. So it is possible that during the recovery phase following your breast augmentation, you may be surprised to experience a few unexpected, peculiar situations. However, most of our breast augmentation patients can expect a timely, predictable recovery and are not likely to experience any complications during and after their surgery at MP Plastic Surgery. This is especially true when you work with Dr. Max, who is a board-certified and experienced plastic surgeon that has successfully performed many breast augmentations.
It is still important to know what you can expect and what potential changes your body will go through during and after your breast augmentation. For example, one common healing observation you may experience is your nipples pointing downward. This could cause concern if you are unaware that it is completely normal and simply part of the healing process.
How Long After Surgery Will My Nipples Point Down?
If you have breast augmentation, you can expect your nipples to point downward for three or four weeks after surgery. This is how long your new implants generally take to settle in, so your nipples will correct themselves naturally soon after surgery. However, it is important to note that if your implants have settled and your nipples are still pointing downward after six weeks, you may need to visit our practice so that Dr. Max can assess the situation.
