You should return to your plastic surgeon for an in person evaluation.

Best advice is to return to your operating surgeon for an evaluation. They can examine you carefully, explain what is going on and treat you accordingly.

One breast being bigger than the other (swelling, taking longer to "drop and fluff") is very common in the coming weeks post operation. That being said I do suggest going for an in-person follow up with your board certified plastic surgeon to be sure nothing major is wrong. If you do need fluid to be drained from your left breast, always better sooner than later to achieve best results. Best wishes!

Thank you for your question and photos, at thıs stage ıt ıs very early to as your breast have not yet settled at the rıght position therefore ıt ıs normal for one to look bıgger then the other. You need more tıme for swallıng to go down.

Breast asymmetry after surgery

Not knowing what type of surgery you had on your breast, whenever there is significant post-operative asymmetry that wasn't initially there along with the amount of bruising you have, I start to think of hematoma which is a collection of blood. You will have a better long term outcome if this collection is drained as soon as possible. My recommendation is that you return to your surgeon and have them evaluate and treat you.
