Thank you for your question. One purple breast larger than the other is most likely due to bleeding within the breast after surgery. This could either be a "hematoma" (blood clot) within the breast, or simply diffuse bleeding. A blood clot can and should be removed to prevent serious distortion of the breast as well as to relieve pain, prolonged swelling, and extended recovery that is usually associated with it. On the other hand, bleeding in multiple small areas (diffuse bleeding) can not and need not be surgically treated and will resolve nicely on its own, even though it will prolong the recovery somewhat. See your surgeon ASAP for an evaluation.
Discoloration and other changes after a breast lift can mean a variety of things. It is difficult to give you an opinion of what this might be without photographs. You should be evaluated by your plastic surgeon immediately.
Without seeing pictures it sounds as if you have a hematome and I would go back to your surgeon and have him evaluate it.You may need to go back to surgery to have it evacuated.
It is possible she has a hematoma, and this should be addressed right away. She needs to see her surgeon urgently.
The needs to immediately be evaluated by the operating plastic surgeon to determine the cause of the discolored breast.
I agree with previous posts and you need to see your surgeon for treatment. Pictures would have been helpful.
ASAP! see your surgeon.... Sounds like hematoma but no posted photos??? WHY??? Who and where was the surgery done???
You need to be seen your surgeon as soon as possible. What you describe could be a hematoma. Good luck.
In your question, you mentioned two of the most obvious signs of a hematoma (blood collection in the breast). If one breast is larger than the other AND it's intensely purple, you need to be seen by your physician.
You really need to be seen by your doctor. Without photos I really can't make a diagnosis, but you just mentioned two of the most obvious signs of a hematoma (blood collection in the breast). If one breast is larger than the other AND it's intensely purple, you need to be seen by your physician.
I can't say much about the scar - since I can't see it. Sorry.
