Pulling feeling in breast, 4 weeks after uplift with implants. Is this normal?
to say that you are still early on healing process, it is too soon to determine
how your results are going to be, per now, they look very nice and beautiful,
you can have one bigger than the other, it is normal and that can happen for
the first 3 months until your implants have settle in. Open wounds and scars are also very
common in this procedure, and also if it happens, you have to get with your
plastic surgeon for cleaned and if it's worse , put stitches on it.I
recommend you to wait and keep using your post surgical bra, that will help you
with the shape and support…
You are still healing but it sounds like you may be developing an early capsular contracture or have some differences in your skin envelope/ breast tissue that are leading to asymmetry and tightness which deserve and exam and discussion with your PS. They may give you an implant band to wear over your left breast to help it drop and settle at the same rate as the other breast. Just get examined and voice your concerns.
At one month into your recovery, your breasts are likely still adjusting and settling. Strange sensations like the one you have described are common during this period and are unlikely to be causes for concern. Nonetheless, I recommend mentioning any strange feelings to your surgeon, as he or she can best evaluate your condition as you recover.

Thank you for your question. At four weeks post-op, you are still in the healing process. It can take a few months for you to heal completely. If the feeling you are experiencing now is bothering you in the future, then please see your operating surgeon to be evaluated.
All the best,
