Found Lump After Breast Enlargment Surgery, Is this Normal?

Mass under right breast 1 week post breast augmentation
If this small lump hadn't been present prior to surgery which I assume was the case, then it is unlikely to be anything of major significance (especially when described as small). There are several possibilities of what this could represent. You should point this out to your surgeon at your next visit which should be fairly soon and get an explanation of this.
Lump in breast 1 week after breast augmentation
A lump in the breast, at anytime, should be evaluated thoroughly by your physician. Fortunately, you are very early in your post-operative period so you should have several appointments with your surgeon in which your lump can be evaluated and addressed in a timely fashion. Be sure to point this out to your doctor at your follow-up appointments. If you do not have an appointment for several weeks, I would encourage you to call your surgeon and ask for a sooner appointment so that the lump can be evaluated.
"Lump" after Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question.
I would suggest that online consultation is not the appropriate place to seek advice regarding a breast “lump”. Even though you have recently had surgery this finding could be significant and should be evaluated expeditiously by your physicians. Nothing will replace physical examination and possible radiographic evaluation as well.

Lump after breast surgery
A breast lump after surgery could be any one of a number of things and most of them are nothing to worry about. Your surgeon is the best person to evaluate your lump and advise you as to what to do about it. Make sure you point it out on your next visit.

I would recommend that you let your surgeon examine you to determine whether this is normal or needs further investigation. While it is probably nothing to worry about, I have seen instances where a breast mass was palpable after placement of an implant. You should definitely not wait more than a couple of weeks to have it checked.
