Asymmetric Breasts After Surgery
Slight differences in breast size after breast augmentation is to be expected. The swelling will subside and the implants will settle at different rates over the next few months.
If the swelling in one breast continues to worsen significantly, I recommend you contact your surgeon to discuss the issue. Best of luck!
Give it some time
Asymmetry post op
Most people have slightly different sized breasts or one fold slightly higher than the other. This can be more obvious to you shortly after surgery when everything is swollen. Most often it will even out as they heal.
If you note a drastic increase in size/firmness/pain let your Plastic Surgeon know.
All the best

Larger breast right after surgery. Any suggestions?
Thank you for your question. It could be swelling but it could also be a fluid collection or hematoma. Be sure to see your surgeon immediately to be evaluated. Over time, the swelling goes down and the implant also settles down. If you are not happy with your result by 3-6 months, you can discuss with your surgeon regarding options for revision. It's best to wait at least this amount of time before making a final judgement. Good luck.
