Breast Asymmetry

Q: I had a revision surgery one year after the initial augmentation. I am now almost four weeks post op and am completely asymmetrical in size. The swelling has not gotten worse, but has not gotten better by any means. Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

Posting of front and side view pictures would have been very helpful.

It is difficult to opine without seeing your pictures or examining you. However, “I am completely asymmetrical in size” one month after surgery reflects something wrong with your recovery. If you have saline implants, one might have deflated; if you have silicone implants, you might have a hematoma.

In any event: yes, you should be concerned! Contact your surgeon as soon as possible for assessment, as it may be possible to take appropriate action (if determined by your surgeon).
