Breasts Are Different Shape, Size & Left is Way Higher & Smaller Than Right???

I had a breast augmentation about 3 months ago. I had saline unders high profile implants put in. Crease incision. 480cc on my right & 420 in my left. As of last week I began noticing my left breast was much higher & smaller than my right. It also has a more round shape while my right is more of a pear & looks very natural & full. My nipple is also much bigger now on my left than right. Both breasts are very soft & bouncy. What could be going on??

Breast Asymmetry after Breast Augmentation?

Thank you for the question.

Your plastic surgeon is in the best position to advise  you since he/ she knows your  situation best. For example, your plastic surgeon knows if you started out with some breast asymmetry ( before surgery),  exactly what was found and done during surgery, and exactly what your  physical examination is currently.

You may be dealing with differential breast implant “settling”;   breast symmetry may improve with time. I have found clinically that as breast implants “settle”,  the breast tends to look larger (“drop and fluff”).

I would suggest continued follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Best wishes.
