It is normal to feel the implants move

It is completely normal for breast implants to shift in the early post operative period.  It may take a few months before this stops being as noticeable.  Also implants placed under the muscle are more likely to be felt moving since the pectoralis muscle is attached to the arm so any time there is movement of the arm there is potentially movement of the pec muscle.  This in turn can  cause the implant to move.  In any case movement is normal and will be less evident over time.

Early post op following breast augmentation

Implant movement is a common feeling in the early post op especially with implants placed under the muscle. Give it some time & they will start feeling like a part of you. All the best.

Sensation of Shifting Breast Implants Common

This is very common and you shouldn't be concerned about it. If they are uncomfortable or feel like they shift around a lot, please speak to your surgeon. It takes time for your body to adjust to the presence of your implants, and they will gradually "fall into place" over a period of 3-4 months.

Is it normal to feel your implants move?

Congratulations on your breast augmentation!!  Don't worry, it's normal for patients to feel their implants shift or move.  Soon enough they will start to feel like a part of your own body. If you have a concern, contact your surgeon.  ac

Feeling implants shift

This is normal in the beginning phases of healing.  If you are concerned though, you may want to ask your surgeon.

Is It Normal to Feel Breast Implants Shift While You Are Moving?

Yes, I think that it would be considered normal to  feel your breast implant shifts to some degree when moving or changing positions. You may also feel the implants move when you contract your pectoralis major muscle, if the implants have been placed in the sub pectoral position.

Most of my patients feel that the breast implants “feel like part of me” ( physical and body image adjustment) approximately 3 months after the procedure is performed.

 I hope this helps.
