Have you been noticing a strange noise coming from your bazingas after a boob job? Don’t sweat it, sister.
This squeaking or sloshing could be totally normal. Here’s the 411 on squeaky breast implants and what you should do.
What’s That Noise?
Strange as it may sound, some women notice a squeaking, sloshing or squishing sound near their implants shortly after or sometimes even months after getting a boob job. The good news is that this is most likely normal and temporary.
Your implant may have slightly moved in the breast pocket after your procedure, causing the squeaking you’re hearing. But don’t worry — your implants will take a few months to settle into their final position, so this could be totally normal.
It can take around 3 months for your implants to begin to drop and fluff.
Other times, an air pocket can form within the breast pocket, causing a sloshing or squishing sound. For one Colorado woman, this is exactly what happened after flying on a plane to Florida, due to drastic altitude changes.
What’s up, Doc?
Although these noises are likely nothing to worry about, it’s never a bad idea to give your plastic surgeon’s office a ring if you notice something out of the ordinary. If these strange sounds don’t resolve on their own within a few weeks, you’ll definitely want to get everything checked out, just to be on the safe side.
If you have silicone implants, your doctor may recommend an MRI to make sure there aren’t any leaks causing these sounds.
