Swollen on one side after surgery

Thank you for your breast implant question.

I understand why it is easier to ask advice on-line after surgery but
no one can advise you except your surgeon.
Please call your plastic surgeon now, explain what is going on and arrange to be seen.
Best wishes!

Congratulations on your surgery!! Yes, I can also see and agree that your left breast is quite a bit larger than your right breast.  You should go see your surgeon as soon as possible for an in office exam to rule out hematoma or any other complication.  ac

Significant asymmetrical swelling after breast augmentation needs examination and diagnosis

I agree that the asymmetry is rather striking and the left side looks larger than the right side to degree more than I would expect unless a significantly larger implant was placed on the left side.

I agree it is important to see her plastic surgeon to rule out the possibility of a hematoma.
