The implants will account for about 2.5 pounds. Some patients retain a fair amount of fluid for a time after surgery. Some women leave the hospital a day after childbirth weighing more that when they arrived despite delivering an 8 pound baby and and 8 pound placenta. 

Patience. Eat normally and healthfully, expect to weigh 155 soon. All the best.
