2 months post op, some advices:
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.
Kind regards,Dr. Emmanuel Mallol.-

Postop hematoma vs swelling.
Rapid onset of swelling of an area after surgery is often indicative of postoperative bleeding known as a hematoma.
Signficant ctivity after surgery with gradual onset of swelling can often indicate simple swelling due to overactivity, or the possibililty of a fluid collection known as a seroma as well as a possible hematoma. You should be evaluated by your surgeon as soon as possible to establish a diagnosis.
Significant hematomas or seromas often require drainage to minimize possible additional postoperative problems such as capsular contracture or postoperative infection and abscess.
