New Silicone with Lift
I think you look good, although I don't have the benefit of examining you. Your nipples are pink, and appear to be close to center of your breast mounds. All the skin appears to be nice and pink, and the white spot does not appear worrisome. Your breasts appear to be of equal size. Some bruising is normal, and usually a hematoma is dramatic and huge. I would rejoice. However, your questions need to be answered "live" by your surgeon.
Good Luck, "Dr. Joe"

Swelling takes about 48 to 72 hours after surgery to "peak", so having an increase in swelling the past 48 hours is considered normal. In addition, having one side more swollen than the other is also normal, anytime two of something is operated on one side is always bound to be a little different than the other, this will resolve and balance out as you heal. That being said, if you are concerned about a hematoma or abnormal swelling it is always best to check with your operating surgeon. Best of luck!
