Early 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.
Palpability of the implants can always occur. If the implants are too large in diameter compared to your breast base, then you might want to consider smaller implants.
Thank you for the question and the picture. You really need an in person evaluation to get accurate information regarding the issues that you are having. Good Luck

Thank you for your question. I would urge you to see your plastic surgeon for an examination in person. The 550 cc implants are quite large and replacement with a smaller implant may be indicated. However it is best to have an examination and person and not rely on Internet advice.
