Breast Asymmetry Uplift & reduction/Labiaplasty


I had mastopexy with right breast reduction 6 days ago, as well as labiaplasty. I am concerned that the asymmetry is not corrected and that the labiaplasty has left me with what looks like a small penis at the front, a triangle hood that looks odd when standing and hideous underneath. When will I be able to have corrections, and can you comment on the surgery please. Many thanks

It is almost impossible to change the shape of two different breasts.
I think you should find satisfaction in the fact that athe lift is well done.
Good luck (more)

You have exactly the same amount of asymmetry or less of what you had prior to surgery. Must be realistic and patient. (more)

So you think this is an acceptable result for an asymmetric breast correction involving an uplift and right side reduction? I feel that more breast tissue should be removed on the right side so the size is more equal, if not exactly the same shape - after all, that WAS the point of surgery!

The asymmetry is the same as before - no different other than more uplifted!
