Trouble Sleeping after Breast Implants
Sorry to hear you're having continued pain and difficulty sleeping. If it's any consolation, this will subside. You could ask your Plastic Surgeon if he thinks you/re a candidate for a muscle relaxer, which we commonly prescribe after augmentation. Sometimes the pain is related to some muscle spasm and relieving the spasm may relieve some of the pain and may make you back feel better as well
The final appearance, shape, and movement are not exactly the same as normal breasts. The surgically enlarged breasts do not move in the same way as normal breasts. They tend to be firmer. The contours are usually somewhat different than normal breasts. In some patients these discrepancies may be rather noticeable. Although every effort is made to place the implants symmetrically, complete symmetry is rarely achieved. Immediately after surgery, the breasts are swollen and firmer. The final shape and size is approximated after 2 to 3 months, but up to one year may be required for the end result
Stretch from implant should diminish
Thanks for your question and congratulations on your surgery. The very large size implant that is wider than the base diameter of your breast means a large pocket must be made. More volume means more internal stretch and pressure. You might get some relief with ibuprofen and ice but unfortunately it is more a function of time. Best of Luck!
Congratulations caseface on your augmentation! Everyone recovers differently and it really depends on what kind of augmentation you had and if the same thing was done on both sides.You are still really early in the recovery period. If the breast looks different and feels different, it is important to maintain follow up with your doctor and have your concerns addressed in person as well. Wishing you a good night of sleep, MMT
