Swelling after Breast Reduction

Dear Andie1100, 
Asymmetric swelling after breast surgery is very common, and expected. If you have other symptoms such as increased pain or bruising in that breast, it could be concerning. I would double check with your operating surgeon just to be safe. Good luck!

Swelling is common post-op. Sometimes one may be more swollen than the other.  If concerned, see your surgeon.
