Why do I now only have pain/tightness at the bottom and lower sides of my breasts
Thank you for your question. Post operative swelling and pain is normal. It will improve with time but it can take your soft tissues weeks or months to completely heal after surgery.
If you have specific questions you should contact your surgeon.
6 days post op
Thank you for your question. At 6 days post op you are quite early in recovery still. It is not uncommon for swelling/pain to increase slightly at night and in the morning. As well, the crease under the breast can be a source of pain and tension for a few weeks or more post op because of deep sutures placed in this area which will take time to soften and dissolve.
Talk with your Plastic Surgeon about any concerns.
All the best
Soreness after surgery
An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice. Best of luck. Dr. Michael Omidi
