I Had a Silicon Breast Revision Done 3 Weeks Ago, my Right is Lovely and Soft but my Left is Still Really Hard?

Can Someone Please Explain to Me, Why when I Lift my Arms Above my Head my right Soft Implant Stays in the Same Place, but my Left harder implant moves up my chest, I had silicon revision due to cc 3 weeks ago, is it because the right has just not dropped yet? Thank you for your answers.

Breast Asymmetry after Revisionary Breast Surgery?


Unfortunately, without direct examination it is not possible to  make an accurate diagnosis or provide good advice. However, given that you are only 3 weeks out of breast revision surgery, it is possible that the breast asymmetry you are experiencing is related to different rates of breast implants “settling”. I would suggest that you follow up closely with your plastic surgeon to communicate your questions/concerns. He/she is in the best position to advise you given that he/she knows your situation (and the operation performed) best.  He/she is also in the position to rule out complications that may cause continued breast asymmetry/hardening.

Best wishes.
