Should my breasts look as asymmetrical as they do? There is also a line now popping up under my right breast. What is it?(photo)

Early breast result
2 weeks post-op
I agree with your plastic surgeon in that your surgery could not have gone better! Asymmetries are almost a given with breast augmentation due to the fact every pair of breast among all women are asymmetrical from growth. Being so early in the healing process (full healing coming around 12-18 months) you are still very swollen and do not yet have the final "look" that you will achieve. I believe you will be very happy with your results as quickly as a couple of months from now. Make sure to stray from many strenuous activities these first few weeks!

Thanks for your question! At one week out from surgery, I'd say that your results are fairly normal at this point. They will definitely settle out more with time. It's too early to judge your final results at this point; I'd give it around 6 months. As for the scar band on your right side, that's just from the superficial fascia under your skin; no big deal, fairly common, and usually at three weeks out you can massage it away with fingertip massage. In my practice of doing thousands of these, I've had success with having my patients do implant massage at three weeks post op; ask your plastic surgeon what his/her routine is. Best of luck to you!
