Breast augmentation post op, some advices:
Thanks for the question.
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
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.
Mastopexy augmentation and feeling implants in armpit
With a mastopexy augmentation the implants can ride up high (in the armpit) until they descend over a few weeks to several months. They should not stay high but if they do some require surgical release of scar tissue. You are early in the post op period and most likely they will fall into place.
Breast augmentation question
is still early in the postoperative course. Allow additional time for your implants to settle. This can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon.

Implants in armpits
Hello, it is common for implants to be sitting high only two weeks postop. Sight unseen it is not possible to comment whether you are healing normally, but your surgeon will be able to follow this with you.
It's hard to tell without a photo or exam, but with more time, your implants should drop and also swelling should go down. Sometimes, the feeling of your implants being in your armpits is determined by the width of the implant itself, which will not change.
