Had Revision 11 Days Ago. My Left Still a Lil Firmer and Tight Feeling?

I went from 375 mods to 700hp 11 days ago. My right side is perfectly fine. But my left side feels tight and a lil bit firmer is this muscle spasm or something else that I need to worry about? I saw my PS a week after my surgery and he said breast looks good they are holding were they suppose to but. I guess left side just bothers me a lil bit. Feels like its a lil bit heavier and pulling feeling. Can some one please help me. Thank you so much.

Asymmetric “Firmness and Tight Feeling” after Revisionary Breast Surgery?


Your plastic surgeon is in the best position to advise you and/or rule out complications after surgery. However, your description of one breast “bothering you a little more” than the other does not sound too concerning to me. Some difference ( mild/moderate) in discomfort or swelling after surgery is quite common.

For real peace of mind however continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon ( earlier than scheduled if you have concerns).

Best wishes.
