Firm Breasts 7 Months Post Op
Thank you for your question. It is difficult to say without a physical exam whether or not your experience is 'normal,' however, I would not expect my patients to complain of hard breasts 7 months after a routine breast augmentation. I would encourage you to seek follow up with your operating surgeon for a physical exam and to discuss your concerns. Best of luck.

Thank you for your question and photo. By 7 months I would expect her breast implants to soften and be movable. Please see her plastic surgeon for an examination to make certain that you have not developed a capsular contracture.
Firm breasts over 6 months post op
Make sure you have had proper post operative follow up care. There are multiple reasons why they could be firm. Most commonly this could be capsular contracture. A board certified plastic surgeon will be able to diagnosis this upon examination.

My breasts feel very firm 7 monthe after breast augmentation
It is not typical for the breast implants to feel firm 7 months after surgery. However generally speaking, over inflated saline implants will feel more firm than silicone implants. Also if you have developed implant capsular contractures your breasts will feel more firm. I suggest you visit your plastic surgeon for an evaluation.
