Breast Asymmetry?

Thanks for the pictures. No problems with the English. Your result looks good. There may be some uneven swelling. It is only been one week after surgery so the size should even out.

Breasts Different Size After Augmentation

It is very common for one breast to be larger than the other after surgery due to swelling. It may take several weeks for them to settle down. Let your surgeon know of your concerns, he/she may be able to put your mind at ease. Good Luck.

Breast augmentation and size issue

Some asymmetry is normal. No two breasts are the same. Right now the breasts are swollen give them time to heal.

Early breast asymmetry

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Your breasts are mildly asymmetric at this time which is totally normal. Whenever two sides of someone has surgery, (2 breasts, eyes, ears, hips etc), one side will often swell more, relax or heal faster than the other. It is far too early to scrutinize things so closely. Give yourself 9 more months to heal. If you have more concerns discuss them with your surgeon.
