Breast Feels Like It's Not Attached Internally? (photo)

3 days after my BR surgery I was reaching over my head and cleaning the bbq grill due to literally no instructions from my surgeon :( Now 3 months later, it feels like the left breast has not healed properly INTERNALLY and something is "pulling" from inside. Also when I lean forward without a bra on it feels like the internal breast tissue is not attached. I saw my surgeon about a month ago and all he said was "massage it" which I've been doing with Vitamin E cream to no avail. Please advise

Concerns after Breast Reduction?

Always  best to check with your own plastic surgeon about concerns after surgery.  If still in doubt, a second opinion with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area may be helpful to you.
Online consultants will not be able to provide you with meaningful diagnosis, treatment recommendations, or reassurance.
Best wishes;  hopefully, you will be very pleased with the  long-term outcome of the breast reduction procedure.

Breast reduction results at 3 months

At 3 months, your breasts are still healing and some scar tissue internally may be tugging a bit.  Follow closely with your surgeon and follow his/her instructions.
