Why are my implants itching and gurgling?

Many women experience what they see as unusual side effects after breast augmentation, but for the most part, these experiences are completely normal.


For example, it’s not unusual for breast skin to feel rather itchy after surgery. This is because, within the first couple of weeks, your nerve endings are beginning to heal. Moisturizer and hydrocortisone cream are imperative to control your urge to scratch, because giving in can damage delicate, healing tissue.

Some women even hear gurgling sounds in their breasts after getting implants. This is due to fluid and air bubbles that can form within the implant pocket before it finally settles. That should stop within a couple of weeks as air is absorbed by the body.

Of course, if you’re worried that side effects like these are lasting too long, you should contact your surgeon.
