breast reduction

AS some of you will know i had my br done a few days ago. I'm a bit concerned about a couple of things:

One breast is bigger than the other. Has ayone else experienced this and they've settled to the same size after a couple of months or so?

I had lipo for the fatty bits near my armpits and one side has bruised and swelled terrribly. surgeon said a blood vessel must have been hit during the op. i wasn't at all concerned about the lipo before the op and and this is what is now causing the most discomfort

I'm sorry to hear your still having a bad time. Have you spoken to the dr? I assume they would correct any mistakes if they are not the same size, but it could be swelling couldnt it. Who did it and where? I am considering br so watching this thread to see what others have experienced. Hope your feeling better soon.

i'm hoping it's just swelling but seen doc and he said he could now see one was bigger at the moment but need to wait for a few months to see how they settle. trouble was that they were uneven before the op (the bigger one is now the smaller one!) and he explained before the op it was going to be very difficult to get them completely symmetrical. What size are you atm and what are you hoping to go down to?

At the moment I am not sure, I am waring old bras that dont quite fit, they are either 36 or 38 G or H. I need to lose weight first tho.

Its quite good that there are not floods of replies to your post saying they had the same problems, maybe its unusual?

What did the dr say he would do if they dont settle?
