What do you think about my results, asymmetry (pectus carinatum)?
1. Overall, given your starting point, your plastic surgeon has done a nice job for you.
2. It is too early to evaluate the final outcome of the procedure performed and whether or not additional surgery may be helpful to improve concerns such as asymmetry.
3. I do agree that there does seem to be some breast asymmetry; this may or may not be related to breast implant volume. I think that the asymmetry may be related to implant positioning and that it is possible that adjustment of the lower breast implants "pocket" (capsulorraphy) may be necessary to improve symmetry in the long term. Of course, other concerns such as chest wall asymmetry and differential breast implant volume may come into play also.
Again, still early to evaluate the final outcome of the procedure performed; continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon will always be your best resource when it comes to accurate assessment, advice, and/or meaningful reassurance. Best wishes.
