Concerned about my lefty!!

Dr. Roughton I’m 4 weeks PO and my right keeps dropping beautifully but my left isn’t budging!! My PS said to do warm compresses and massage. I’ve been doing that for the last two weeks and it’s still not budgingI!!   I sent some pictures to my  PS and he says it can take months for it to drop. This was a revision with larger implants and a donut lift, so you would think I would drop faster, right?! What do you think? I’m so worried about a capsular contracture 😭

  • Yes Hey Laura Nelson if it’s looked like that from the get go I really don’t think it’s capsular contracture. I agree with your PS—keep the faith, massage and heat will be fine. Side to side can be different due to using one arm/chest more than the other. Too early to reop even if god forbid it is cap con (and I REALLY don’t think it is).  😉 have a great fourth.

      Dr. Roughton thank you! This has just been such a roller coaster ride. I appreciate the reassurance. Happy 4th to you! ❤️

  • My PS made it very clear that one side will most likely drop before the other and not to panic. Stay positive, trust your PS and the process. They look amazing 🥰
