Breast Augmentation: Q&AAsk a Question
Breasts Not Perfectly Centered After Augmentation
I had silicone breast implants 3 weeks ago, and during my first follow-up appointment (2 weeks ago), I noticed that one of my breasts is closer to the middle than the other and that they are not perfectly centered. I asked the nurse about this and she said not to worry because they still had a lot of settling and healing to do. I am going back next week for my second follow-up appointment, but I am very concerned about this. Is it normal for this to happen and can it/will it correct itself with time?
Does it sound like I may need to have revision surgery? It's not really that noticeable, but without a shirt on, with a bathing suit top and with some shirts, it is obvious.
