Pain is normal if one breast is swelling much more than the other you should be evaluated for a hematoma as soon as possible

Congratulations! The first day after surgery my patients are on a strict medication schedule including narcotics and muscle relaxants. Review your schedule with your surgeon.

At one day post-op it is way too early to see the final results. If you have significant pain that is uncomfortable, you should contact your surgeon.

Follow your surgeons directions but typically we do not have patients massage this early. Differences in size can be due to swelling at this point. It could also be due to pre operative asymmetry if you had any. Give your breasts at least 3 months to settle into their pockets. I would simply follow the advice of your implanting surgeon.

No one reading this question can answer these questions as well as your surgeon can, and if there is a problem that needs to be addressed, only your surgeon can do that. 

These are appropriate questions--don't feel that you are bothering the office!

Thanks and best wishes.
