Tight, pulling sensations
Yes, feeling tightness or pulling especially around your incisions is common at this time in the healing process. This is because the swelling is at its highest point right now and your breast pocket must stretch to match the size of your new implants. This stretching of the skin can be uncomfortable but will not last long. I wish you the best in your recovery and a congratulations on completing your surgery! If pain persists beyond a tolerable amount be sure to follow up with your plastic surgeon for the smoothest healing process possible. Best wishes.
Post Op Sensations
Yes this can be normal wherever your tissues are tight and swollen. As well, patients often feel a tight, pulling sensation at the incision sites. You can expect these sensations to resolve over the next month or two. Talk to your Plastic Surgeon about any ongoing concerns.
All the best
