Is tightness under the armpit and under the implant normal? When does that subside?

Tightness under the armpit following a breast augmenation
Thanks for your question. 4 months after surgery, your body is still recovering and adjusting to the implant being present. It is unlikely that you have developed a complication such as capsular contracture so soon after surgery. It may help to massage the implants to ease the tension. If massage doesn’t seem to be helping the discomfort I would recommend that you see your surgeon for a check up.
