1 month post op, some advices:
Thanks for the question.
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.
So you appear to be healing well 4 weeks post-op, but it looks like you are having some skin irritation/dermatitis, could be from the oil or lotions you are putting on. Call to schedule appt with your surgeon to discuss with him/her what scar care regimen her prefers. as for the dimpling, this will continue to smooth out with time.
