I am one week post-op and I feel the implant in my left breast at the bottom but not the same on the right - is this a problem?


After one week post-op I feel the implant at the bottom of my left breast but I feel it more to the side in the right breast and the bottom is soft.  Could it be that one implant has dropped and the other one hasn't yet?  Or, is it possible that the right implant is slightly smaller and slightly lower than the left one.


Please address your concerns with your breast surgeon. At one week post op it is a bit early to determine what is going on without an examination.

Thank you for your question. Asymmetry of the breasts is very common at one week after breast augmentation and usually balances out.

Please see your plastic surgeon and express your concerns.
