Thank you for your question.  It does appear that you have asymmetry. I would recommend that you discuss this with your surgeon. At this point the majority of your swelling should have subsided.

Discuss asymmetry results with your plastic surgeon

This is really something that your own plastic surgeon is in the best position to evaluate. There are a number of possibilities to consider:

  • was there asymmetry before surgery?
  • were the same size implants used?
  • is the asymmetry due to swelling/fluid collection?

There are many reasons that one breast will be larger that the other.  It is not possible to tell the cause or answer whether a revision is indicated based on one photo.  I recommend you discuss with your surgeon to first determine the cause (capsular contracture, seroma, different amount of tissue before surgery, different size implants) and then devise a plan.

Good luck.  I hope you find just the right - and even - size you are looking for.

IF you want your breasts to more even in size, you will need a revision. best to start by going back to your original surgeon, IF he/she won't help you then go to someone else.
