Breast Shape After Augmentation

Thank you for your picture. A detailed examine is the best way to get an answer. You breast shape does not look natural and almost looks like you have a capsular contracture of both breasts. The correction for this is surgery. Revisit this with your PS.

Without seeing pre-op photos, it is difficult to answer this questions. Some breast asymmetry is normal, and this could certainly reflect pre-op differences. It can also take 6-12 months for both breasts to drop to the same level. You should see your PS to make this determination and decide if you need a bandeau or not.

5 months after augmentation

Some asymmetry betweent he breasts is normal. It is always best to be seen in person and review preop photos as well. It is difficult to comment from one photo.

Thank you for your question.

It is difficult to give you advice without an examination but it is common for one side to settle more than the other. If the degree of asymmetry is significant, than lowering of the breast implant may be an option. This operation will involve adjustment of the breast implant pocket on your left side.

I recommend that you keep your follow up appointment with your surgeon and communicate your concerns with him/her. Remember that absolute symmetry is almost never achieved.

Best Wishes.
