It is normal to have a fluctuation in swelling after a breast augmentation. Most people swell immediately after surgery then it gradually subsides over about a week. However, it is common as patients begin to become more active to have swelling reoccur along the superior aspect. This is usually due to spasm of the pec muscle from over use. Take it easy and you should improve. I hope this help you.

Assuming you had breast augmentation, having fullness in the upper pole of the breasts is normal at this stage. If the implants were placed under the muscle, they usually take 3-6 weeks to drop/settle, but can take up to 6 months. As the implants settle, the fullness should resolve.
You do not say what surgery you had so I am assuming that it was breast surgery and yes, swelling in the upper breast is expected 10 days after breast surgery. Depending on what surgery you had, the swelling can take up to several months to resolve.
