Implant replacement and post-op pain
Certainly when implants are replaced and the capsule is removed, there will be some amount of post-op discomfort. This will vary from patient to patient.
Everything sounds Appropriate
Pain is quite normal after 6 days and the breast shape and size will continue to improve over time. It sounds like things will be fine.
