Also, as you heal, the area may feel “lumpy” and irregular. This, too, decreases with time, and massaging these areas will help soften the scar tissue. The #compression garment helps reduce the swelling, and the longer it is worn, the more quickly you will #heal. It can also assist in the retraction of the skin. If you have any concerns about #healing, its best to ask questions of your surgeon or their nursing staff.

After three months of healing you should have a pretty good idea of what your final result will be. Everyone heals differently,but typically a 3 month result is predictable of a final outcome. Is the fullness in the right side new, or has it been different from the left side all along? It's not uncommon to have scar tissue build up behind the nipple areola complex on one or both sides, and this scar tissue usually melts away with a steroid injection such as Kenalog. Talk to your surgeon about this asymmetry; there is always something that can be done in cases like this to optimize your final result.
