Bigger breasts after surgery?

I'm about 5-1/2 weeks post op from my Da Vinci surgery. I haven't been able to resume my normal workout routine yet, but thankfully, I haven't gained any weight from all the lounging around I'm still doing. What has gotten bigger are my breasts! Before I returned to work 3 weeks ago, I had to go up a cup size. I was a 36B, but now I'm a the same exact style and brand bra I always buy. I was thinking I was swollen from being pumped with air, but my new boobs are still here. Has this happened to anyone else?

And, just to be clear. I'm not complaining...neither is my husband.

Re: Bigger breasts after surgery?

So glad to hear I'm not crazy. I'm 8 weeks post op and I noticed yesterday I'm "busting" out of my bra!!! LOL. Wonder if it's hormones? I had a cesarean hysterectomy and kept my ovaries. Wondering if it's just everything still getting leveled out?

I had the same thing happen and OHHHH the pain that went along with it for months. It must be hormonal. Eventually everything evened out. Thank goodness because I am a 38D. It is all my back can handle. And my dh does not seem to be complaining either.

Congrats to you!

I'm so glad I found this post!

I thought I was seriously loosing it! I'm soon going to be a month out from surgery, and breast have started to hurt like crazy and I'm finding I can't squeeze them in my regular bra!

I had asked this question to my team of doctors before the surgery, and they had said it wasn't possible because I was keeping my ovaries and there would be no hormonal changes...well they are wrong!

As an aside - I'm happy about it and I hope it stays this way!

Excess estrogen will cause your breasts to swell and be tender (painful).
