Asymmetry after complex revision breast surgery: give it time
Capsulectomy is often associated with a long period of swelling, so it may take a few months to see the final result. This is especially true when there is a breast lift as part of the procedure. I am sure your plastic surgeon will want to follow your progress.
Six weeks is too soon to be evaluating symmetry, particularly after a complex procedure. Furthermore, without before photos, it is not really possible to evaluate the outcome. What asymmetry I do see seems rather modest at least on this single photo. It will be best to discuss options in person with your surgeon, or if you prefer, with another surgeon for a second opinion.
All the best, Dr G
