Breast lift/aug 11 days ago with brachioplasty. I don't know if this is the way it should feel and look, please advise (Photo)

Thought I was going to have an anchor lift on both breasts ,went in to my p/o visit he advised that the right one hurt much worse because he did 2 diff procedures. He did an anchor on 1 and a Cresent on the other. I feel as though the one with the anchor lift doesn't feel right. It's so tight under the breast that I feel like I'm limiting my movement. And it looks strange in the bottom half of the breast under the nipple as though.the implant isn't in the pocket,also feels a little hArder.

Wait for some time

The final appearance, shape, and movement are not exactly the same as normal breasts. The surgically enlarged breasts do not move in the same way as normal breasts. They tend to be firmer. The contours are usually somewhat different than normal breasts. In some patients these discrepancies may be rather noticeable. Although every effort is made to place the implants symmetrically, complete symmetry is rarely achieved. Immediately after surgery, the breasts are swollen and firmer. The final shape and size is approximated after 2 to 3 months, but up to one year may be required for the end result.

Lift and augmentation

It is likely that the side that had more work is bit more painful. Best to give it a few months to heal.  If concerned, talk with your surgeon.

Thanks for the question.
Its early to talk about results.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.
kind regards,
