Breasts not healing similarly - one breast feels more firm and tight.
Even though 6 weeks have passed since surgery, majority of the patients achieve final results after 3-6 months. Swelling can last for more than 1 month, but it must be concerning you as this is only in one breast.
The tightness you feel is most likely because the muscle, surrounding breast tissue and breast skin are still getting accustomed to the implant. Once the surround tissues loosen, then the breast implant naturally and freely move just like your breast tissue as you raise your arm, etc.
Please note that it is common for breasts to heal and adapt to implants at different rates. So don’t worry.
I would urge you to follow-up with your surgeon and share your concerns. Their instructions should take precedence over all else you read here as they are better informed about your surgical details.
Hope this helps.
