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 after Cosmetic Surgery
It is very common to gain weight after any kind of cosmetic surgery, but especially after surgery involving liposuction. Your body retains water after surgery for the first few weeks. It is not uncommon to weigh 10 pounds more. After a few weeks your weight should return to normal. If you have more concerns after giving it a few weeks, you should discuss them with your surgeon. Good Luck!

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.
