Unilateral Asymmetry - Hematoma
Unilateral gynecomastia occurs when only one breast is larger due to gynecomastia, while the other breast is typically normal in both size and shape. Bilateral Asymmetry occurs when gynecomastia is present in both breasts, although each to a different degree. The amount of glandular tissue can affect the size, shape, and location on the chest wall of the enlarged area, the size of the areolae, and protrusion and diameter of the nipples.
Now, if you only had the procedure completed on one side of your chest it is definitely possible that your healing (including any possible hematoma) is only on that side right now and the tightness, swelling or other post-op conditions can be quite uncomfortable. If you find yourself worried then it would be a good idea to visit your surgeon and have the area examined to make sure that healing is going well. Good luck!
