Breast Augmentation

Is it Hematoma If After Breast Augmentation One Breast is More Swollen?

Can Hematoma occur right after breast augmentation procedure, if one breast is more swollen then the other? Aristocrat’s certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani discusses the possibility of hematoma occurring, as well as asymmetries which are common in breast implants surgery.


“So I’ve been healing pretty quickly and steadily, the incisions all look fine. I have some shooting pains and my nipples go from numb to sensitive but overall I have feeling. However, one breast feels much larger than the other and it also looks like it hangs lower. The nipple is also on a different side, it’s not facing forward like the other one. Is this swelling normal? Are they just healing at different rates? Will this eventually go away and they’ll match up?”, a RealSelf user asked.

“Looking at your pictures, it does not seem that you have a hematoma and all looks well. Asymmetries and different healing timelines are very common in breast surgery. Unfortunately, your breasts do not communicate with each other to synchronize healing. Please do communicate your concerns with your plastic surgeon who is in the best position to answer your questions.”, Aristocrat’s board-certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S explained.
