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.
