Post Op 6 weeks- Uneven Breasts

Post Op 6 weeks- Uneven Breasts

Postby Kk1375 » Tue Feb 12, 2013 2:24 pm

Hi Ladies,
I'm new to this board and need help/thoughts.
I had a small breast reduction and lift (with strattice) on 1/3/13.. 12 days post op my right breast was oozing like crazy and my left breast was very swollen/red/tight/hot but not leaking. My PS said that I needed to have surgery right away to remove the strattice.

I had the second surgery/strattice removed on 1/17/13. Since the second surgery my left breast had the incisions split (4cm high, 2cm wide). Now it's 2/12 and I'm healing nicely- the wound on the left breast is healing and no longer oozes (more like a yellow hard scab forming from the inside out).

What's worrying me more than anything is that my left breast is larger than my right breast. I don't feel any real pain and its been 6 weeks from my initial surgery. Is there any chance that the left breast is still swollen? I feel like I brought this on myself because it was a cosmetic/elective procedure. I don't want to have a 3rd surgery to even out the breasts and I am very depressed!
