3DPO- so swollen & uncomfortable. My left side is extremely swollen & also is extremely bruised. Should I be concerned about the bruising?

  • It's hard to tell without knowing what you looked like before.  You could have a hematoma (collection of blood in the left pocket).  Or that could just be your look until the implant drops.  If you had no significant asymmetry before and you do now (looks like you do in the photo) the I would DEFINITELY contact your surgeon.  Those need to be drained out (usually in the operating room).  Happens on average 1% of the time, and given breast augmentation is pretty common, it means we all see hematoma from time to time.  Sorry you're going through this. Best of luck.

    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!

    • Dr. Michelle Roughton i do have asymmetry but not as significant as it’s being shown in the photo. Unfortunately i don’t currently have any befores. I have my post op appointment tomorrow & im obviously freaking out. This is what it looks like today.

  • Hard to know for sure but I’m guessing you have a little blood in the pocket. Definitely worth taking a look at you in the office. Here’s to hoping you don’t need anything else!!
