Is it normal to still have a lot of inflammation on one breast 11 days after surgery?
I went to my doctor today and he said that I'm still very swollen and if by next week the inflammation hasn't gone down he has to do surgery again. One breast dropped already which was the one that he put a smaller implant in, the one with the bigger implant is still very swollen today he gave me a band to wear but if by next week it's still swollen i'll have to have surgery again. Is there anything I can do to reduce it in a week?

Is this a double bubble?
On 2/6/18 I had a breast augmentation with Allergan round 415cc high profile silicone gel implants. The left breast has a slight indentation along the bottom. It's more noticeable when I raise my arms. Since I'm a little over 3 months post op, is there anything I can do to resolve this? Or will it likely not change and require a revision? I didn't seem to have this until the implants dropped.

Could the lift be higher or is this as high as it would go?

I had a mastopexy with augmentation on May 2, 2018. The PS put in 195cc of saline because I already had a lot of breast tissue. I was not concerned with size but more concerned with upper fullness. It has been a week and I feel like if I drop anymore I’m not going to like my results. Will the PS have to add more saline or is this just how they will be? I don’t want huge implants that could cause me to sag worse than what I already did.

Looking to go from 1800cc saline over the muscle (1000 shell overfilled) to around 3000cc. Willing to travel but looking for a surgeon.
Also debating on same size shell over filled to the maximum or traveling to Italy for a larger shell with an over fill. What’s the safer option?

Breast Lift - 5 answers
5 weeks post-op breast lift with 250cc Mentor high profile implants. My breasts look a little boxy/square at the bottom. The right breast looks smaller and a little more square than the left. My right breast was bigger before the surgery and now is a little smaller even though both breasts have the same size implant. I understand it's too early to see a big change, but this is my first surgery and I'm worried they will look square in the future. Any advice? Will I need a revision?

I am 96 lbs, 5’4, 38 years old. I want modest breasts. I wanted 275 CC but my surgeon said 330-360 CC when we discussed saline. But then I decided on silicone and he said 365CC. I don’t want to be a “D” cup.

I am 4 years post breast revision. I am concerned I am developing symmastia. I notice it when I am sitting with no bra.
In the stated position, I notice a fold at base of cleavage and the skin is not adhered to sternal area. Is this symmastia or something I could have had and just never noticed? I have considered downsizing over the last year, and almost regret ever getting implants in the first place. I have 600hp Natrelles. Facing another surgery is frustrating and do not want to have to worry about ever facing subsequent surgeries. How involved is a complete explant? I don’t care if I go back to my size A’s.

I have a sharp pain in my left breast near the cleavage a little above the incision. Is this normal?
I had a breast augmentation on April 27. I was a 34AA on my left breast and a 34B on the right and went for a full c cup. I got mentor memory gel xtra breast implant in both, Left side 325cc and right 295cc. The sharp pain started yesterday around 10 pm and has now lasted for 24hrs. I have been taking 2 Tylenol 8hr pain med 650mg each but that doesnt seem to help with that pain. It helps with the dull pain in both the breast but sharp pain in that one spot wont go away.

Four days post op and my breasts look flatter and smaller than before. Is this normal?
I had 275 cc saline round, moderate implants replaced with SRF-385 Natrelle Inspira full profile silicone implants on 4/26/18 along with a capsulotomy. I wanted larger breasts with more upper pole fullness. At four days post op, I'm concerned because my breasts don't really even look swollen. No upper pole fullness. They almost look smaller and flatter. Is this normal? When I had my previous augmentation they were extremely full on top until they settled. I love my surgeon - just concerned.

20cc - can I hope for a full B?
I just got a BA 7 days ago and I’m pretty unhappy. While I am quite petite, with a very narrow upper body (the weight I have is ALL lower half of body) - I woke up from the procedure and the first thing I said was - why are they so small? I’m now a week out and swelling is going down and I don’t think I’m a full B. I started out with virtually zero breast tissue, taut skin and quite athletic. I live in NYC, so big boobs are a no-no. But I’m just shocked at how small my boobs are.

Am I about to go to big?
I have a scheduled breast augmentation next week. My doctor and I decided on 450cc silicone under the muscle at my pre-op appointment. I'm kinda nervous I went too big the more I look at client photos online. (It was hard to visualize with the ones she had.) I'm 5'6" 135lb, I also have broader/wider shoulders - not sure if that plays into things. I'm 34A would like to be full C - maybe a small D. Does it sound like I went too big?

How would I determine the proper measurement?
While measuring my breast, a PS measured said my right breast was larger. The doctor I’ve chosen for my surgery said my left breast was larger. I think my right is bigger. I have an A cup, after having 3 children. When using implant sizers they would put a larger one on the left side and it did seem to balance better. They also say it’s the position that makes the right “seem” larger. Is this common?

How do I lower my implants to a full C?
I had a breast augmentation in 2015. I started with natural 36B and after breast augmentation ended up with 36DD, though max I wanted is full C. I had a Mentor silicone breast implants, 375 cc moderate plus. DD feels too huge to me and I'm not feeling comfortable with such big boobies. I want to replace my implants with smaller one. I'm also looking for a different plastic surgeon in my location.

Do you any idea what's going on? Will my breast ever settle?
I got my breast done a year ago in May. I was 32 AA and got 380cc silicone under the muscle. My breasts where fine up until the 7 months. I got an infection. I got antibiotics. I was told the fluid went away and it would take a while to go down. It's been nearly 4 months since that happened and my left breast is still hard, bigger, firmer and higher than my right side. The right side is soft and looks more natural but there is clearly a difference in size.
