Flat Spot After Breast Lift and Augmentation? (photo)

I am six months post-op from a breast lift and augmentation. About two months post-op is when I first noticed the flat spot on my left breast. My doctor assures me that it will round out with time but I feel as though there has been no improvement. Will this get better with time?

Thank you for the question. If it does not improve over the next several months you may need a revision to fix the flat area. Good luck.

Flat spot after a breast lift / augmentation

I would give it another 3 - 4 months to stretch out.  It is possibly due to pull from your breast lift incision.  If it does not improve you may need a minor capsule release revision.

If this hasn't improved at all in the past four months, it is not likely to improve from hereon out. Another visit to your surgeon is in order.

All the best.

Flat spot will get better

Give it a bit more time. The area of concern should improve over the next several weeks to months. Thanks for sharing your photos and question. Best wishes.
