Thank you for your question about breast augmentation.

  • It sounds as though you are recovery well,
  • Yes, there is more tension in both breasts at night -
  • You stop moving, the muscle gets tighter.
  • It is also normal for one breast to heal faster than the other,
  • And excellent that in just 4 days, you get through the day without pain. That's great. Best wishes.

Very normal

It can take 6-8 weeks for the breasts to soften so be patient and let the time go by and they will evolve further

  • If you're breast augmentation was performed only four days ago you will undoubtedly notice different feelings in your breast. I think it is important to note that you do not have any increased swelling on one side as opposed to the other. I would suggest that you discussed these symptoms further with your plastic surgeon.
