Vibration and noises in breast after implant. Will this hurt me if it doesn't go away?

Noise and vibration three months after breast implant exchange
Often, these noises are not heard or noticed early after surgery, because the pocket may be tighter and restrict the implant motion more than after a couple of months. But, once the pocket loosens, and the implant can move more easily, the sounds are sometimes heard.
I doubt that this will hurt you (although I suppose it is possible that something other than air is rubbing against the implant, and could ultimately damage the implant), but I also doubt that it won't go away.
While you certainly could do an ultrasound, which would reveal any air, you should ask your surgeon if you should do that now, or if you should wait to see if it goes away on its own after another couple of months.
All the best!

- I am sorry you have this problem -
- Perhaps on the 'noisy' side, internal sutures or suture knots are rubbing on the pocket or on the implant.
- It is unusual though - if you were my patient, I would order an ultra-sound test to see if all is well.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
