Will I be able to tell if I damaged my breast augmentation?
Doctor Answers 6
1 Week Post Op
Lifting luggage and items over the head is something that I ask my patients to avoid for a time post op. Although uncomfortable, you may not have done any damage. If you see any changes in the breast, increased firmness, swelling, bruising or feel increased pain then I recommend that you be assessed in person.
All the best
Ask your surgeon

I further advise my patients that they should "listen to" their body as far as what activities they can do after the third week. At four days after surgery, the discomfort you had was definitely your body saying, "I'm not ready for this activity yet". For more information on this and similar topics I recommend a plastic surgery Q&A book like "The Scoop On Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths." Hope this info helps.
Signs of hurting your procedure
Will I be able to tell if I damaged my breast augmentation? = is breast asymmetric, possibly #BA #breastaugmentation
In a sub muscular breast augmentation, the muscle connects to the arm. Therefore, certain activities of the arm, can activate the muscle to the point that it can cause miss position of the breast implant, resulting in asymmetry.
Patients should avoid carrying anything heavy than 5 pounds or lifting their arms above the shoulder level for at least 6-8 weeks after surgery.
