Symmastia - always tough.

I would speak to your operating surgeon about what this represents.  I know it is always a tough operation and immediately post-op, things never look great due to swelling.  I suspect there is a great deal of swelling obscuring the final result.

Thank you for the pictures. They pierced to be in accented fold of the right breast reducing its volume. Your operating surgeon will know what this represents. I would specifically asked your operating surgeon questions about this and other concerns that you may have. Good luck

 Thank you for the question and pictures. The area of concern is visible in the photograph you post. However, online consultants will not be, with any degree of certainty, be able to explain exactly why the contour is somewhat flat in the area of concern . Your plastic surgeon, who knows exactly what procedure was performed, will be your best resource in this regard. Best wishes.
