This is my 3rd surgery with implants. 1st time got saline, second was a corrective surgery and this last surgery I had silicone put in and they stiched im assuming my muscle to my ribs on the left side. Never had side effects with either surgery prior to this one. What is going on with me? :(

Dizziness after breast augmentation

It is possible that the medication used by the surgeon or the anesthesiologist to counteract nausea can create dizziness, blurred vision, and dry mouth. This is a common complaint of the patch scopolamine that is frequently used behind the ear. If you have this patch on, remove it and wash the area carefully with soap and water, but know that it will take 6-8 hours for the effect of this medication to abate.

Given that you have not taken any pain medications and your surgery is four days ago, I urge you to contact your surgeon's office to be seen as soon as possible.  While these may be leftover side effects from your procedure or the medications, the only way to be sure is to be seen and examined.   Please call your doctor's office.  Best of luck.

Nausea and dizziness 4 days after breast augmentation

These are unusual symptoms 4 days after the procedure. Dizzines can come from standing up too fast when dehydrated or its remotely possible that some of the anesthesia is still present in your system, according to what they used. My suggestion is to see your doctor to get some clarrification on your symptoms, particularly if you ahave taken no narcotics. Make sure you are well hydrated as well.
Good luck!

Please seek medical attention and call your plastic surgeon.   These symptoms you are describing are not normal after breast augmentation especially if you have not taken any new narcotic pain medicines.
