Everyone’s skin elasticity and breast size affect their results after a breast augmentation. Each person also chooses different breast implant volumes. Depending on your skin, and the breast implants you prefer, you can expect some tightness until tissues slowly relax and expand after surgery. Many women experience a temporary loss of sensation following breast augmentation due to pressure and nerves affected by surgery. You can expect significant softening throughout the first two months following surgery and another 6-12 months before all sensation returns to normal.
