An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.

i agree with my colleagues that your breasts appear to be within a normal result for the early post operative period; however, I would continue close follow up with the surgeon who performed your operation. Best of luck with your healing!

Based on the photos you posted your 3 week post op results are well within normal limits. I typically tell my patients to expect final stable results at 4-6 months post op. You may consider discussing your concerns with your surgeon.

thanks so much for asking a question and posting some photos. So sorry to hear about your concerns. This is totally normal. Unfortunately, especially with breasts, the final results will take months. In the interim you just need to relax and wait for everything to settle. Your immediate postop photos are going to look nothing like your final photos. I like to show my patients early postop photos of other patients so they can see what things will look like in the early post-op period and then how it will progress to the final result. Obviously, if you are concerned, see your surgeon and voice your concerns. Chances are they will tell you the same thing, but there might be some early interventions they can implement depending on whats going on.

Early Postop Results
At 3 weeks it is very difficult to say what your final result may be. You still have significant swelling, and your tissues haven't fully relaxed. We don't take postoperative photos in my practice until about the 3 month mark due to all the postoperative changed your breasts will go through in the next month or so. I would continue to follow closely with your doctor and follow their recommendations. Best of luck!
