Asymmetrical breasts: If you had mastectomy of one side it is not uncommon at all to have 2 different size and shaped breasts.Usuaslly,your other breast is smaller or saggy or bigger.All these are corrected in the second operation.Your insurance company will pay for that as they paid for your first one.Go back to your original Plastic surgeon and he wil help you.

Implant: Was the reconstruction performed with Implants or with own tissue? Please check first with the surgeon who performed the surgery for possible explanation for the shape.

Dr.Narayanan is quite right.It is a possibility.Whatever is the case you should go back to your original surgeon.

We need to find the problem first and then solve it.We do not have much information other than a deformed breast.The first surgeon has all the informations.She should start there.

Revision of breast: Of course, it is a new operation being done.
