Breast Augmentation Asymmetry & Zafirlukast
Thanks for providing your preop photos, as this is very helpful. You can see preop, your right nipple is higher to start with, and so is your right breast fold. Just think of your breasts as "sisters, not twins." Everyone has these differences if you look hard enough. Although I don't have the advantage of examining you, your implants postop look very even at both the upper pole as well as the lower breast fold on each side. I would say you look great considering where you started! If you think you are slightly high on one side, you can use an elastic breast band with the band going over your right side and under your left. This will help stretch the lower skin of your right breast.
I have published extensively on the use of zafirlukast in BA. Be sure you have your liver function tests drawn while on this medication. It is used to prevent capsular contracture.
Don't worry just yet

One implant higher
Presumably you have implants placed under the muscle. It is not uncommon to have one ride higher than the other for a number of weeks or months. It is probably related to whether you are right or left handed - but also saline implants ride higher for longer because they are lighter implants.
Talk to your surgeon as to whether you can do pectoral muscle stretches - to relax the muscle. And be patient. Your surgery was only a few weeks ago. Implant settling can take time. Best wishes.
