Unusual feeling after breast augmentation
I am assuming that you had breast augmentation 4 weeks ago. Patients may experience gurgling, sloshing, air bubbles, and rubbing sensations for a few weeks following breast augmentation. The first few are from air and/or fluid in the pocket that has not yet absorbed, and the rubbing is from movement of the implant against the pocket (and ribs if suppectoral) that has not yet become lined by a mature smooth capsule.
