8 days post-op: Early signs of double bubble? (photos)

Double bubble a days after breast augmentation
I do see the bulge of the implant when you press the implant down however you do not have an obvious double bubble at this point.
You need to allow the tissue to heal and the tissue in the inframammary crease region to become tightly adherent to the underlying chest wall. Next
By pushing the implant down as you're doing in the photograph you do increase the chances that you will develop a double bubble. If you were my patient I would be taping the inframammary crease region to help healing of the inframammary crease tissues to the chest wall.

Double bubble at 8 days?
Worried about double bubble 8 days after augmentation
It is hard to be sure from the photograph what is going on.
There is some shadowing that suggests the rim of the implants may be slightly below or to the side of the incision. However your surgery was only a few days ago and things will be swollen. You need to discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon and see how things look as the swelling subsides over the next few weeks. Best wishes.
