Too early to judge
I know it's scary to come out of surgery and have things look so strange, but the swelling and brushing will subside. You just need to be patient and kind to your body as it recovers from your surgery. Best, Dr. Nazarian
2 days post op
You are so early post op, swelling, bruising discomfort are all totally
normal. Continue to see your surgeon for follow up care and be patient. Good Luck1
Some bruising and swelling are normal. Your early result does not suggest symmastia and is probably due to normal swelling with a little bruising. Give it time to resolve, and stay with your surgeon; share your concerns with him.
2 days after BA
you for the question. You are still in
the post operation recovery stage. It is
not uncommon to feel pain, itchiness, and slight abnormalities during this
period. It usually takes about 8-12
weeks for the wounds to heal and around 4-6 months for the implants to fully
settle. It would always be best to visit
your board-certified plastic surgeon and get a full assessment for your
concerns. Best of luck. Dr. Michael
An in-person exam
with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and
provide true medical advice.
You are still very early postop and things will settle over the next few weeks and months. All looks as it should and I am sure by the time your PS sees you for a wound review that a lot of the swelling will have gone down and he/she can reassure you face to face.
Breast Augmentation / Breast Implants / Anatomic Implants / Revision Breast Surgery
I appreciate your question.
Right now, you are very early on in the
post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable
having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you
to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many
variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size
and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients
heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different
rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Please Express your concerns to your surgeon so
he/she can examine you at this time. Then reassess final result at 6 months.
The best way to assess and give true
advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic
surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
Thanks for your post. No, you will certainly lose quite a bit of swelling over the next several weeks. I would not worry. You appear to have a nice, early result. Follow up w/ your surgeon routinely. Best wishes.
2 days is too early to make any significant assessments, BUT you do not have symmastia.
Be patient, cont in to follow your post-op instructions given to you from your PS, and good luck. Looks to me like you are on your way to a very nice result.
I don't see any symmastia in the photo. It may take several months for the implants to settle. Looks like you're on your way to a nice result.
Thank you for your question and providing photos. Based on your photos I do not see any signs of symmastia. I tell all my patients that it will take 4-5 months for all your swelling to resolve and your implants to fully settle. I believe you will end up with a very nice result. Best of luck
