You may want to check with your surgeon.
A few days after breast augmentation, your breasts are recovering from surgery and going through many changes but you shouldn’t be experiencing capsular contracture this early and a hematoma typically causes a change in breast size, significant bruising and pain that worsens. Some women do experience a tightness or firm feeling in their breasts after breast augmentation. This doesn’t tend to be a sign of any issues with your implants though. If you’re concerned about the tightness, you may want to check in with your plastic surgeon to ensure that you’re healing properly.
Early post op, some advices :
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
