Will my Left Breast Get Bigger and Go Down? (photo)

I had breast augmentation 5 weeks ago. I got 600 cc implants under the muscle, and I was a 32 B (almost close to A) before. My left breast is sitting much higher and looks smaller than my right breast. Will this even out with time???!!

Thanks for the pictures. Two initial thoughts come to mind:

  • you have an abnormality of your chest wall (sunken on the left) that causes the implant to look smaller and have a higher position
  • capsular contracture

You should review your concern with your operating surgeon.

Looks like the implants are even but there is much more swelling on the left, this may be soft tissue swelling only and may settle in 3 months or so
