Swelling and Asymmetry after Chin Implant
Asymmetric swelling can give the illusion of malposition. Followup with the plastic surgeon, but waiting at least 6 to 8 weeks before considering surgery is prudent.
Early Chin Implant Concerns
At just one week after the placement of a chin implant, swelling can account for the appearance of asymmetry and hardness. It is important to wait at elast 6 weeks and preferably three months before judging the size and symmetry of a chin implant.
Asymmetry after Chin Implant
It's impossible to say if your asymmetry is secondary to swelling, or malposition of your implant only by looking at your pictures. I would recommend that you see your surgeon and discuss your concern with him or her.

I would recommend a visit to your surgeon, as he/she will be able to address any immediate post-operative concerns. It is a bit too early to come to any conclusions about your result, as swelling can interfere with the appearance. I hope this helps, and good luck to you.
