Your left breast may be healing slower.
While it’s a great idea to start walking as soon as you can after breast augmentation, you may have been too active too soon and aggravated muscles at the incision site. Each incision and breast may be healing at different rates, which could be why the left incision hurts and the right one doesn’t. Gentle stretching exercises may help alleviate the cramps and pain. Ice packs can reduce any swelling that you’re still experiencing. Be sure to rest and let your body recover. When you feel better, you can continue easy walking to increase blood circulation and promote healing.
Pain incision site after breast augmentation
Dear mililivIt is quite normal at this stage of recovery to experience some pain on the incision site. The two breast never heal in the same way and at the same time so the pain can be asymmetrical. From the pictures all look fine but if you are worried or the pain does not settle can be reassuring to see your surgeon.Best wishesMr Netri

It is normal to have pain at the incision sites and related to them. There are typically deep sutures placed in these spots and for a few weeks, tension and pain will be present there. It is not uncommon for each side to feel different as well, but if you note something that looks different or is causing you concern, let your Plastic Surgeon know.
All the best
Breast Implant Incision Pain 4 days after surgery.
4 days post op, some advices:
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. Kind regards
