Is it normal for implants to move when you move?

I am 6 months post op and I had silicone implants placed under the muscle. If I lift my arms to stretch or anything similar I feel the implants moving or something. It's not painful it's just kind of weird feeling. Is that normal? When I'm cold or nervous and shake or shiver I feel them move also. I thought maybe I can feel them more than usual because I was really small before implants maybe?

Thanks for ur question! Yes, it is quite normal for u to have this sensation. In my experience of doing thousands of these, some patients experience this. Over the next several months to year, u should get used to this & become desensitized to the sensation. Best of luck moving forward!

Thank you for your question. Since your implants are placed under the muscle,  which is how I place the majority of implants, when you flex your chest muscles or use your chest muscles the chest muscle moves the implants. This is a normal occurance. You notice it more now because they are new. You will eventually not even realize it.
