Should I be concerned about this pain?

Thank you for your question. You are still very early in the recovery phase and one side can always feel different than the other side. Either way, you should still contact your plastic surgeon's office and report this finding. Best of luck.
Pain After Breast Augmentation
Thanks for your question! There is certainly some pain to be expected after BA, and certainly one side will always be the "problem child" and bother you a little more than the other, not only in pain, but also in swelling, scarring, etc. that being said, any one sided pain should be quickly addressed by your surgeon, so I'd definitely follow up with him/her ASAP. Hopefully it's just a muscle spasm, and not something more serious like bleeding or a lung issue. At any rate, go follow up with them ASAP. Hope that everything turns out ok!
Breast augmentation - severe pain on one side
- Please contacted your own surgeon and arrange to be seen.
- Things may be fine but one-sided pain after any surgeon must be reported to your surgeon.
- It could simply be that your muscle on the right side is in more spasm than the muscle on the left.
- Or it could even be a breathing problem that needs to be diagnosed and treated.

Post Op Pain Concern
Thank you for your question. If you think something is unusual or becoming worse there is no harm in letting your Plastic Surgeon know. While asymmetric pain can be common, a physical exam can allow your surgeon to rule out anything more serious.
All the best
