Enlarged Nipple After Breast Lift surgery

I am 21 years old, and I have had a breast lift with breast augmentation surgery four days ago. My recovery has actuallyb een pretty easy , my only concern is that my left nipple protrodes out farther than my right. It is also much more sensitive. Is it possible that it is just swollen and that it was decrease in size as I heal or does it look like I will need to have nipple revision?

ANSWER

Nipple Asymmetry

Thanks for your question - It is far too early to tell the final shape. Typically swelling can mask symmetry and the final result may not be apparent until 6 months later. Discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon. I hope this helps.
