3 weeks post op, some advices:
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,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-
Incision issue post breast augmentation
Thanks for your question. Sorry you are having issues with your surgery.
It is very rare to have a seroma. It sounds like your surgeon is on top of it as he immediately re-operated. The incision issues sound a bit strange. Photos would help with an opinion. A physical exam is the best way to diagnose the problem.
I would follow up with your surgeon to have them re-evaluate it.
