Not satisfied with my breast augmentation surgery. Where do I go from here and what is your opinion?

Hmm... Not sure what happens after surgery if you aren't satisfied with the result.  I got my first set of implants at 25. 225cc, subpectoral, round, saline implants. Went from 34A or AA to a full B small C.  2 pregnancies and breastfeeding left my tissue very thin and implant scalloping and ripples along the edges were noticeable. Plus I was originally told at 10 years they should be changed out. So, that being said I went to 3 different doctors, all recommending silicone so I did my research and picked one. I am now 7 days post-op with 435cc, subpectoral, round, sientra (gummy-bear) implants. I'm probably a full C small D with the swelling. Here's my issues: A) I had asked to be as large as possible without looking ridiculous and I'm probably only a half of a cup size bigger. (I can deal with that though). B) One is probably 3/4 of an inch higher than the other one and I'm totally lop-sided. C) One now has a 5 or 6 mm lump of something in it that wasn't there before so it's either a hematoma or tissue left from the old capsule that you can feel even through a sports bra and a sweatshirt.   D) I was shown a regular Mentor silicone Memorygel implant and they never even mentioned the Sientra's, then I wake up and that's what they put inside of me. I would have liked to have been given the option because I don't know much about them, other than what I saw at another PS's office. The Sientra's were much firmer and they looked like a volcano laying on the counter. The top silver dollar size portion of them while laying flat, completely laid flat as well. Making your breast look like a volcano when you lay down, if you know what I mean. Plus they are both hard as rocks. I thought my salines were firm. Geez! So..... Is the surgeon responsible for making them look symmetrical and/or perhaps even replacing these implants that I never chose for the ones that I did at his own cost or am I just out another 7200 bucks and additional surgery and down-time?      Or is it just too darn early to tell about how hard they are

Seven days post op really is quite early to judge your results. However, you may want to be in close touch with your PS about the lump or possible hematoma. I might also suggest writing a breast implant revision review about your experience along with posting pictures so you can get additional feedback from the community. Hoping you experience some dropping, fluffing and signs of asymmetry soon!
