Breast asymetry after augmentation
Spartan098, I am sorry you are concerned about the asymmetry between your breasts.
To clarify, I think your left breast is on the left side of the photos, since it looks as though you used a mirror for the photos. This will reverse normal photographic technique.
You clearly do have some asymmetry between your breasts. Starting pre-op, you left breast is higher and smaller than your right. I can not determine if your chest wall is symmetric, but I do not see anything that makes me think it is not. After your surgery, your breast size looks equal to me. I see no evidence that you have an appreciable size difference. I think the third picture is probably most representative of your inframammary fold height. Your right implant does look a bit higher than your left. Your arm is blocking the side of your right breast, but it also looks a bit constricted.
At four months out i doubt you will see much change. Give it two more before deciding anything, but I doubt you will see much more change. Talk with your surgeon about your concerns. You do have some asymmetry, but is it worth repairing this? that is a question only you can answer. Overall, your asymmetry is much improved from preop.
