Wonky breast size after feeding

Hi everyone, I am in the final stages of weaning my almost eight month old DS off the breast. Everything has gone so well, but I am a little dismayed to see that my left breast is looking significantly smaller than my right. Anyone have any advice on what I can do to fix this/make it less lopsided? How long does it take for breast size to settle down after feeding has ended? Thanks so much!

Mine went really wonky after feeding, dd's seemed to prefer one to the other (spooky) but now can't remember which; think it took around 6 mo's or so for them to go back down again.

Same for me mssjk.

DD is 10 months and still feeding like a mad woman. She has always preferred my right boob and it's always bigger and more full than the left.

Lots of people have told me it takes 6 months for them to settle after stopping bf'ing.

I'm seriously considering a boob job if they're all empty and droopy after that time!

Thanks for your responses. I'm seriously considering only feeding him from left side for the remainder of the feeding in the hope it will help things even out a bit... think it might work?
