Changing Breast Shape After Augmentation & Lift
I see your concern in the photograph. Additional pictures would be helpful for reference and symmetry. It is best that you address this concern with your surgeon. If you are having a lot of pain in the right breast then s/he should know that. The bra is helpful for compression and support. Compression can help reduce swelling and support provides comfort. If the bra you have is not comfortable then my recommendation would be to find one that is; but again, discuss this with your surgeon.
The skin tightening associated with breast lifts and the subsequent swelling following surgery can sometimes produce breast shapes that appear a bit odd or misshapen. Given time, for swelling reduction and tissue relaxation, the breasts can go on to assume a very normal pleasing shape. Your surgeon should be able to provide additional information in this regard since s/he knows the details of your pre-op appearance, your procedure, and the expectations.
Best wishes, Ken Dembny
