Looking at your posted after photo in a bathing suit top indicates to me that you are being tooooo active. Slow down. Call your surgeon to discuss your rib pain.

This should resolve with time.  Heat or ice may help as well as over the counter motrin.  Follow your PS instructions for now and long term this should not be an issue for you.  Best, Dr. Kerr

If you are concerned you should call your plastic surgeon. Each surgeon has his or her own post op instructions…make sure you are following your post op guidelines.

Breast augmentation post-op instructions are different for different doctors. It is best to ask your surgeon what he prefers.
