1 month post op, some advices:
On the other hand, generally to avoid the normal p.o. swelling, I recommend to limit the arms movement for two weeks.
Also it's not advisable to carry weight and take the antiinflamatory painkillers drugs.
Finally, I recommend you always use a therapeutic bra.

Thanks for your question. Overall you look fine. I know it is hard to be patient when you want to look and feel better but it will settle. Most of what you don't like will be better in 3-6 months. If not a simple revision can correct it. Good luck

Time and patience will be your friends; nothing to do to "correct" now.
In the longer term (I would give yourself six months to one year), if you are displeased with the outcome of surgery, revisionary surgery will be necessary to achieve an outcome that you will be happier with.
