One Breast Larger Than The Other After Breast Augmentation
Normal: Breast asymmetry is normal;it's just the way you're built. ...Read more
Revision ; swelling: Revisonal procedures do not have to be exactly the same on both sides as the problem being addressed may be in different in the breasts. Therefore the surgey can be different and hence the swelling/scars may be different. Minor variation in swelling can occur when both sides have a similar procedure and is perfectly normal too. ...Read more
Sure: That is not uncommon. The breast tissue that remains, and the skin of the breast will have been greatly disturbed. Any impairment of the blood supply, as will certainly happen with the surgery, can affect the healing and recovery. If an infection should develop in the incisions of either breast, then the healing will be different as well. ...Read more
Maybe: This is something that an examination requires to tell you it is normal or not. Find a MD to check the area. ...Read more
Perhaps, not usually: The density of silicone implants is very close to breast tissue as it approximates the density of water. However this is not typically the case as most breast mass is a combination of tissue/gland (more dense than silicone) and fat which is less dense than silicone. ...Read more
Implant Weight: Depends of how fibrous the breast tissue in question is. In general, breast tissue is mostly fat tissue. Fat in general is less dense and will float when placed in water. Saline breast implants are mainly salt water. A gallon of fat will have an approximate weight of 7.39 lbs, a gallon of salt water will have a weight of 8.35 lbs and a gallon of silicone will have an approximate weight of 19 lb. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Yes, Depends on you.: If you are asking if your cup size will be larger, the answer is usually yes. Having said that, there is no standardization of bras. Also women often wear the wrong size bra. We have also seen after lifts and augmentation that the breast now look great, (with good upper pole fullness and the nipples in the right place), the bra itself now fits as it should. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Do nothing: In most instances one breast is slightly larger than the other and unless very small with need for enlargement, no treatment is recommended. ...Read more
Yes: It would be rare for a person to have two absolutely identical sized breasts. There is always going to be some variation. If it does not concern you then it should not matter. ...Read more
Under maybe better: There are plusses and minuses to implants under the muscle. Usually there will be a more natuiral look in the upper part of the breast where the muscle conceals the outline of the implant. However, there is the potential for what are called animation deformities which are shape changes when the pectoral muscle is flexed. See a board-certified plastic surgeon for expert guidance. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Size matters!: A breast lift tightens the skin on the breast, lifting the breast mound and nipple. It does not change the volume of the breast. A breast reduction is very similar; however, during a breast reduction surgery, breast tissue is removed to reduce the size of the breasts. When the breasts are too small, a breast lift is combined with breast augmentation to increase the size of the breasts. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Why do some nipples/areolas look different (larger, darker) after breast augmentation? Before and after pictures often show a significant enhancement in size of nipples after breast implants. Is this an unpredictable result, or is it related to a choice
Skin stretch: The implant adds volume to breast, so the skin has to stretch to accommodate the implant. The areola also stretches as the skin stretches, so they sometimes look larger. The pressure of the implant also helps a nipple that inverts to stay everted. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
It depends: Breast reconstruction commonly utilizes implants either immediately after the mastectomy or later. When you meet with your plastic surgeon prior to surgery, you will discuss all of your options, including implant size. Clearly the average implant size will be greater than for cosmetic augmentation as the volume requirement is greater after the the breast tissue has been removed. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
For most people: There is not much difference between saline and silicone implants. All implants are wrinkled, but saline seem more wrinkly because they are filled with salt water. Silicone implants are filled with a gel that is thicker, so the wrinkling is not as apparent. This is only an issue in very thin patients, where the wrinkling may be noticeable (but usually not in clothes or a swimsuit.). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: In almost all women, one breast is larger, lower than the other and that is quite normal. You may address any other issues at your next visit to your doctor. ...Read more
Sensation of milk let down in one breast, not breasfeeding. No other visible change in breast or lump. Is this breast cancer symptom?
One breast larger than the other. Breast-feeding for 3 mos. How can you tell if it's due to cancer? Seems to be larger than normal, comparing sides.
Unlikely: Breasts are usually not the same size. You did not say whether the larger breast is red or painful, or if you have had problem with enough milk on that side. Breast cancer is unlikely but not impossible at age 31. Other causes of breast enlargement more likely (infection, obstructed milk duct). See your doctor for an exam. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Due to childbirth & nursing, my breast size is now 38dd w marked ptosis. Would breast reduction or augmentation be appropriate for much needed "lift"?
When to lift: In cosmetic breast surgery, we evaluate the size of the breasts as they match the patient's desire, the quality and fullness of the skin envelope, and the nipple position. Breast reduction will reduce the breast size, reshape the envelope and reposition the nipple. Breast lift will tighten the envelope and raise the nipple. Lift with augmentation is generally used to enlarge and raise the breast. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
