Options with multiple capsular contractures
At only 2 weeks postop now, you can't have made a new CC so you are probably seeing the distortion of the tissues from years of scar and multiple surgeries. Ask your doctor, they did the surgery and know your case inside and out.

Revision for capsular contracture
This will be a case where an in person exam is very helpful. It is important to know how thick your remaining breast tissue is for the purpose of planning. The left side is clearly more distorted and I assume that implant may be ruptured. In cases like this there is some value to staging your surgery and removing all capsule and implant material and waiting for 3 months before replacing implants. Visit a board certified plastic surgeon with experience and interest in revision breast surgery.
