Breast Asymmetry Post Mommy Makeover
#Healing will continue for 2-3 months following your #Augmentation or #AugmentationMastopexy procedure. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will also be changing. But, it can be up to one year see your final result. Your doctor may require you to move or massage the implants within the breast pockets during the #postoperative period. #Textured implants do not require breast massage. You will be informed about this at your post-operative visit.
Also, the two breasts commonly heal quite differently so #assymetry is not unusual. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial shape. After complete #healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of the doctor or the nursing staff.
Modest asymmetries very common after mommy makeover.

If your surgeon thought he/she got good symmetry during surgery, then it should look great once the swelling resolves over the next month or two.

Your surgeon's advice is good.
You are swollen and it will take time to settle and look natural.

One Week Post Mommy Makeover - Why Does My Left Breast Look Bigger?
Implants, or at least the fluid inside the implants, take about two and sometimes three months to get to their final resting place. Your plastic surgeon told you the truth. Things will settle.
Each plastic surgeon has his or her own technique, and no technique is wrong if it works for that surgeon. However, if you were my patient, I would suggest you use an ace wrap above the breast to encourage the downward migration of the implant or the fluid in it.
Take a deep breath. Give yourself time. I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
