I had a TT with MR and breast augmentation. A few days ago I weighed myself with no clothes on. I was shocked to find that I gained nearly 10 lbs in that short time. My implants were only 500cc not 5,000cc :) Can someone please explain the possible reason behind this, and when can I expect to loose it again? I am only 2 weeks post op. Thank you.

Weight gain after major surgery.
Weight gain/fluid retention after surgery
It is very normal to retain fluid following surgery, specifically with combination surgery. The key is to remember this is only temporary - you will not see the final results for weeks, maybe months, especially with body contouring procedures. If you have any questions or concerns, please be sure to address these with your board certified plastic surgeon.
