Unevenness post surgery question (Photo)

All the best,
Many patients report that one side will swell or sit a little higher for longer after surgery. Asymmetric healing can be normal, especially when starting with a notable asymmetry and two different sized implants. I recommend that you follow up with your Plastic Surgeon regarding any concerns and try to be patient as it will take between 2-6 months for your breasts to soften and settle.

Right now, you are very early on in the post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Please Express your concerns to your surgeon so he/she can examine you at this time. Then reassess final result at 6 months.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
