I just got my breast reduction surgery three days ago and one breast seems to be slightly bigger than the other.

Breast reduction at 3 days
Early 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.

It is too early to conclude your breast shape and appearance as your breasts are still healing and each breast heals differently than the other. This means that swelling and bruising would appear differently and would cause asymmetry temporarily while your body is still healing.

With time, they should become more symmetrical.
You should of course discuss this with your own PS. If you have acute symptoms associated with this asymmetry (such as fever, chills, sweats, redness, more pain on the larger side, etc) then you should call your PS right away. If not, you can arrange to be seen after the weekend and that will most likely be adequate. Needless to say, this cannot be fully discussed via this forum.
I hope that this helps and good luck,
