hey noticed nobody else has posted.....so i wanted to ease your mind some. it is normal for one to bigger than the other...did one need overfilled more? i had that problem last time..i actually picked out my cc amount but this time my doctor saw that one was bigger than the other so he made them symmetrical. so do call you doctor...most likely nothing to worry about...is this your first BA? it takes awhile for them to drop and one could be fluffing out earlier.

Hi.. i have the same problem. My lefty is higher and smaller than righty. I'm worried as much as you are because the difference is really obvious My PS told me to wait six months to see how the implants will settle.

I really dont know if this problem needs correction to even them out but I will patiently wait and see what happens.

Best of luck for both of us

My boobs are two different sizes, shapes and sit differently. The left looks great and if it drops like the right I will freak I hate the right!

It can take months for the boobs to settle and become more even we just need to give them a chance. I hate waiting and my doctor never waits so though he tells me I can have a revision now I am trying my hardest to wait.

The last thing you, me or anyone wants to do is get a revision be perfect and slowly watch the other boob become the one we hate.

Hey there

My left was alot bigger then my right early post- op, there was definitely not that much difference pre-op. They are now getting more even everyday. You are very early post op and probley have swelling etc. just remember they are two separate surgeries and will heal, drop, fluff at different paces.

Take care and rest up xxx I'm sure they will be beautiful

Thanks ladies...yes this is my first Augmentation.

1 more question...is it normal to feel the bag under the muscle...I can feel the bag on My right side which is appearing to be my problem child (more bruised, smaller, hurts more) but not on my left. Im going to the doctor on friday. I am having him move up our PO date because I am stressed and want this to heal as normal as possible

I totally feel like that. I just had my first BA, but my righty is different shape than left, looks bigger too. Also, I can feel the implant more on that side.

Yep I feel the same way! I guess this problem is normal with BA. My breast are different in shape and size .... and position as well! one sits higher, smaller and more oval than the other!!! I freak when I look at myself in the mirror lol!! but oh well, I will wait it out and hope for the best

Good Morning My Dear JBI Sisters. I pray that you don't have C.C. I have it with lefty and I will be getting a revision. I was devastated at first, but, now I'm just looking forward to having my revision and I'm going up a 100cc's while I'm at it.

It really just may be too early, because they do drop and settle at different paces. If it's just high, but soft and still move in the pocket, then chances are that it's just the muscle hanging on to the implant which means that it will drop, but it will just move a little slower than the other, but if it's hard and when you lay on your stomach and it feels as though you are laying on a tennis ball, then chances are that you have C.C. But either way, don't fret, because it's going to get better either through revision, closed capsulotomy or it will just fix itself. Keep your head up. HTH

this is my first and prob not my last b.a lol

my left is the bigger implant was smaller post op and now is great. My right is the smaller implant hung lower pre op and I hate it. I can feet the implant on all sides and I feel like the pocket is too big for it. It still hangs low even after its "lift"

Time ladies it takes time..... please pass your patience once youre done with it!

I'm very thankful that my boobs are softening at equal amounts. I'm also thankful they are in the perfect position to my body, nipples are even, both dropping evenly. I'm thankful the size is pretty even (visually it's hard to tell unless you really scrutinize, my bf thinks they look the same size). There are lots I'm thankful for, so I should just be thankful all around. But, I guess sometimes you can't help but feel a little worrisome about the things that AREN'T going right and that for me is the right boob lower crease has a slight flattened area and that nipple and parts of the boob has no sensation. But, all in all, I am thankful.

Hey there,
My righty looks a little bit bigger and rounder than my lefty. My lefty ended up getting 25cc more than righty, so I can't figure out why righty appears bigger and rounder. The righty is also my "squeaky" boob. I'm thinking that maybe there is some fluid behind that one or something and I'm hoping they will even out eventually. Just trying to stay patient!!

Hey, we have pretty close stats and implant size. I currently fit a 32C bra, fully with no space, snug. I'm pretty sure you will be 32C too.
