4 days post augmentation and recovery has been excellent. Trying to maintain movement and flexibility since Day 1 doing full range arm movements, albeit carefully! This morning when I did arm raises I felt a weird kind of dragging/scrunching around the suture area under the bust. It feels as though the implant is dragging over the muscle is this normal/acceptable or am I pushing things too soon? No increase in pain, as before the only discomfort is along the suture line, breast feel fine.
Can I Feel the Implant Moving?

Implant Movement at 4 Days
Hearing sounds and feeling the implant move is not abnormal after surgery, and many patients report strange sounds and sensations after surgery. Any increase in pain or breast distortion should merit an exam.
Implant moving post breast augmentation
If I am haring you correctly, then it seems that what you are experiencing is normal. Patients hear squeaking or sloshing sometimes after surgery. Be sure that you are following your plastic surgeon's instructions to the letter. Don't over do it. If you have any questions, you should call your plastic surgeon's office.

Breast implant movement?
Thanks for your post. What you are experiencing is normal. Breast implants will move around under the muscle and most patients can hear or feel it happening. Eventually, you become accustomed to them moving normally. Be sure to follow your surgeon's instructions. Best wishes, Dr. Aldo.
Follow your surgeons instructions
It is very important that you follow your surgeon's instructions after breast augmentation surgery. Personally, I do not have my patients do any major upper body exercises for the first few weeks after surgery.
you are having normal sensations after surgery. There will be significant scarring by three weeks and these motions will stop
