Air or fluid around implant after breast augmentation
Anytime breast implants are placed, a small amount of residual fluid or air will be trapped between your tissues and the implants. This air and/or fluid will reabsorb over the course of the first few weeks after surgery. In the meantime, your implants may feel "squeaky." This is common and not of any concern.
