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
