. Thank you for your question. Size and shape of breasts can often play a critical role in a woman’s self-esteem. Fuller and bigger breasts are often associated with reproducibility therefore it is a desired condition. There are different kinds of breast augmentation operation types. Breast augmentation can be performed either with breast implants or autologous fat transfer. There are also different types of breast implants like teardrop or round implants. These implants also can be placed under or above the muscle. As you can imagine there are several different options for breast augmentation. The best way to understand which one is more suitable for you is to get a physical examination by a plastic surgeon.

You should go see your surgeon for a follow up and to discuss your concerns.  It's hard to say without knowing when you had surgery, if you have saline or silicone gel or seeing your pre-op photos.  ac

Your concerns of asymmetry are apprciated

but without knowing what you were like before your photo, its impossible to comment on 'what to do'.  You should simply schedule an appointment with your surgeon (or someone else close to you if your surgeon is not available) for an evaluation.  And should you become pregnant, your implants (assuming newer generation gel) should not affect your outcome in anyway.

Breast Asymmetry

My advice to you is to speak with your plastic surgeon about your concerns.  Hopefully he/she can address your concerns otherwise patients always have the right to see another plastic surgeon for a second opinion.  Good luck.
