Fluid in chest after augmentation
Yes, it is quite common for patients to feel fluid in the pocket right after surgery. This usually resolves after several days. If concerned, speak with your surgeon.
Early after surgery there is significant swelling of the soft tissues which develops rapidly over several days and then requires weeks to slowly resolve.Small amounts of fluid may form around your new implants which is also slowly resorbed.Consequently, a sloshing, squeeking, squishy, and bubbly feeling is often described by patients at your early stage of recovery. This is completely normal and will resolve with time.Enjoy your new look!
This is completely normal and should resolve soon. It is not air in the implants but more than likely either an antibiotic fluid placed around the implant to prevent infection or air in the pocket. It will go away. Do not worry and enjoy your new implants.

If there is ever any real concern, don't hesitate to reach out to your surgeon's office.
Thank you for your question. What you are describing sounds fairly normal. There can be a little fluid or air in the pocket around the implant that can cause a squishy feeling. This should resolve within a couple of weeks. As with any question or concern, I recommend that you follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon. Best of luck.
There can be a little fluid or air in the pocket around the implant that can cause a squishy feeling. This air in the pocket around the implant or in the implant will dissipate in the next few weeks. The fluid may take a little longer. Good luck..
