5 1/2 weeks breast reduction postop and experiencing severe bloating and side boob
Thank you for your question and photographs and I am sorry that your current results have not been what you anticipated. Unfortunately your pictures did not upload correctly to assess your symmetry but at 5.5 weeks you still need to allow additional time to pass before seeing your long-term results. Definitely discuss this with your surgeon at your follow-up appointment. As far as your bloating I would start with drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy diet of fruits and vegetables. There are over the counter adjuncts that you can try including fiber supplements, prune juice, Senna, and Colace. If these do not help, I recommend patients Miralax or magnesium citrate. Lastly your side boob appears to be your lateral chest region and not part of your actual breast tissue, this can be addressed with liposuction or continued diet and exercise. Hope this helps.
Lateral chest rolls are not side boob
and that is what you have... but now that your breast is reduced in size, you see the lateral chest rolls. These can easily be taken down with liposuction in the office. As for the bloating, where are you bloating? You should be able to discuss your symptoms with your surgeon at your next visit.
