One breast higher than the other after breast augmentation???
Breast asymmetries after breast augmentation
Thanks for your question and photos. It is extremely common to have asymmetries in the position of the breast during the healing process. Usually the hand where you are dominant will be higher as the pectorals muscle is slightly tighter. I would continue massaging but please follow your surgeons recommendations. I sometimes recommend a muscle relaxant to allow the implant to drop. Check yourself in the mornings as your implants usually are sitting lower before you begin using your arm during the day. Be patient during the healing process. Follow your plastic surgeons recommendations!

One Implant Higher than the Other Post Breast Augmentation
However, #textured implants do not require breast massage. You will be informed about this at your post-operative visit.
Also, the two breasts commonly heal quite differently so #assymetry is not unusual. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial shape. After complete #healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of the doctor or the nursing staff.

One breast higher than the other?
Thank you for your question and photos. The right implant is clearly sitting higher but this is not unusual at 9 days post op. If it continues to feel harder and stay higher as time goes by your Plastic Surgeon will need to look into causes and ways to intervene but at the moment you may consider this to be normal post op asymmetry. I recommend that you continue to follow up with your surgeon and share concerns.
