problem after reconstruction

I have searched the internet for anyone else with my problem but can find nothing. I had reconstructive surgery to my left breast and was asked if I wanted the bikini or costume scar, sorry don’t know the medical terms. I picked the former. I am now left with a very visible difference in my ‘back fat’. On my left side at the back where my bra goes is quite flat, but on the other where no skin was taken there is a pronounced hang-over. It is more of an embarrasment to me during the summer, as I always have to cover up. It is bad enough having to cover up my arms as I have severe lymphodema in my left arm and have to buy wide sleeved clothes to disguise this. I mentioned this to my plastic surgeon and he just laughed. I just wondered if I am the only person this has happened to or if I am too self critical?
