Noises afterBreast Augmentation?
It is not uncommon for patients to report hearing noises after breast surgery. This is probably related to air or fluid around the breast implant. At one month post op the presence of air or fluid should be minimal to none.
Otherwise, you may be hearing the breast implant as it shifts ( as you change position) over your rib cage. Generally speaking, these types of concerns are not an issue in the long-term.
Of course, your plastic surgeon will be in the best position to advise and/or reassure you.
Resolution Common In 1-2 Weeks
This sensation tends to improve as fluid and air resorb.In addition, formation of a capsule around the implant also helps to minimize this phenomena.In the majority of cases resolution occurs in one to two weeks, but rarely lasts for longer periods of time.
If you’re concerned about this phenomena, it’s important that you have a discussion with your plastic surgeon.Your surgeon should be able to alleviate your anxiety regarding this issue.

Keep your surgeon in the loop, but it is real normal to hear funny noises for a while after surgery on one or both sides. Dr. Pousti gives a great explanation below. All the best, "Dr. Joe"
Squeaking Implants after Breast Augmentation
Implants can squeak due to the implant shell interacting with fluid in the pocket. This usually subsides but may persist for a few weeks.

It is probably residual air that has not been absorbed or the implant perhaps rubbing against the chest. I would suggest seeing your surgeon to make sure everything is OK. Good luck, hope everything is OK.
