Q: Upper pain on the right breast when using muscle, 2 months post op is it normal?

The top of my right breast is painful whenever I use my right arm. I’ve had BA 2 months ago, under the muscles. My breast seems to Have dropped nicely but I can feel a hard spot on my muscle/ top of my breast. Whenever I lift something, open sores etc it is painful. Should I worry? I’ve only started to sleep on my side a few days ago. Also, I Have upper pole fullness, can it still Go down after 2 months?

A: You are still very early with spontaneous improvements still expected

Thank you for your photos and questions. The symptoms you describe are very common 2 months after submuscular breast augmentation. The breasts will continue to soften and the upper pole fullness improve. Be patient as these final changes may take another 4-6 months. Keep your surgeon posted on your concerns.
