Our expert says:
I understand that you are extremely upset and feel emotional. You need to approach the whole issue with a clear mind, though. What I suggest you do is the following:
Write down exactly what you wanted initially. Then write down exactly what your problem is. Discuss this with the doctor and find out exactly why things did not turn out the way you expected them to. One would generally not re-operate or make any surgical correction before at least 6 months have passed. It is commonly known that the body needs about this amount of time, before it is totally settled.
However, this does not mean that something else might be wrong, which needs to be addressed - ie fluid build up in the one breast, which might well account for the fact that the one breast appears fuller and that it pulls. as you describe it.
Before deciding on any correctional surgery, if necessary, I would give your plastic surgeon the chance to investigate, explain and sort the problem. You can also insist that he refers you for a second opinion to a colleague, or just go for a second opinion to another plastic surgeon of your choice.
In the case of any complication plastic surgeons would normally charge you a reduced fee.
If you are still unhappy about the situation, you can also approach the Association for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons for advice. Their website is www.plasticsurgeons.co.za
