Is this a hematoma?
The discoloration on your breast looks more like bruising to me, but you need to keep a close eye on your breasts. If your pain or swelling increase, please see you plastic surgeon. In fact, it might put your mind at ease to see your plastic surgeon now , so that he/she can monitor the area and you can discuss your concerns.
Hope this helps.

1). How asymmetric were the breasts preoperativl?
2) Were two different size or shaped implants used?
3). How asymmetric were the breasts immediately postoperatively?
4). Is the asymmetry improving, stabilized, or increasing as time goes by?
5). Is one significantly firmer than the other?
Some asymmetric bruising could mean a hematoma or it could mean nothing. At times it may even be hard for your surgeon to distinguish between some bruising and a small hematoma. Generally, a small hematoma will resolve in a few weeks and any residual asymmetry is from another cause.
