Q&A: VIBRATING, GURGLING, OR BUBBLING FROM MY BREAST AFTER A SUBMUSCULAR BREAST AUG

"It almost feels as if the implant is moving down to settle in the pocket, is this normal and if so, how long should I expect this?"

 

DR. POUSTI: What you are describing is quite commonly described after breast surgery. The sensation of air trapped in the tissues is also commonly described. However, any significant increase in swelling/size would be of concern.

Best wishes.
