Implant appearance change
Based on the style of implants (textured round) you have, it is highly unlikely that an implant flipped. There is a lot of friction between the implant and your tissues that minimizes movement. It is possible that the implant may have shifted as a result of lying on your chest, or you may have had a pectoralis muscle spasm, asymmetrical swelling, or some other process. A flipped implant is a possibility, but a lot less likely one than the causes I just mentioned. The best option is to see your surgeon in the near future for an in-person evaluation, so that he or she can assess the situation and manipulate the implant if necessary. Keep in mind, 2 weeks is very early in the process and things will naturally look better as each week goes by. Good luck!
