There are several factors that can contribute to a feeling of tightness following your breast augmentation.
Women who have breast implants placed under or partially under the chest muscle can be prone to some residual tightness and discomfort following breast augmentation surgery due to the breast implants pressing against the pectoralis muscles.
Some discomfort is normal following any breast augmentation procedure, and the tightness and discomfort will fade as your body heals. Gentle massage and quality bra support can also help alleviate these symptoms as you recover.
Between three and four weeks, most breast augmentation patients say they do not have pain, but sometimes occasional discomfort is experienced. For some patients, it may take several months before the sensation of tightness completely subsides.
Experienced Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim will discuss the recovery process with you in detail during your breast augmentation consultation.
