It is unlikely that pulling the arm would damage the implants. Did you have surgery through the armpit?

Anyway, if you do not see any bruising or swelling of the breast on the same side, It is unlikely to be significant. If you are still worried, your surgeon should be able to check it for you.

Please see your surgeon for a physical examination just in case. While it may not have caused anything bad to happen, you should see them just to make sure.

Thank you for the question. Based on the description of the incident and the level of your concern it is probably in your best interest to be seen by your plastic surgeon for evaluation. Having said that, it is unlikely that any serious “damage” has been done.

Best wishes.

It is very unlikely that pulling on your arm has affected your breast augmentation. I would try an inflammatory drug and if pain persists for two to three days, see your surgeon.

For peace of mind I recommend an immediate call/visit to your chosen operative surgeon. There you can be examined and instructed in  detail on the dos and don'ts after a breast implant surgery.

Likely ok

Unless you have swelling or fluid collection in the breast, you are likely ok.  If anything was injured you would experience increasing pain and you should see your surgeon ASAP.  As a general rule, the discomfort should get increasingly better.  Decrease use of arms and rest.

Probably is OK

I would have your surgeon check you. If everything looks ok it probably is ok. If there is a lot of swelling on one side that may indicate that some bleeding took place.

Go check it out with your doc.
