Breast implants will come down further after 3 weeks

Thank you for your photographs and question.  For 3 weeks after breast augmentation your result looks superb.  It is very likely that with the massage that has been advised your right implant will come down to match the left side.  You did have a small asymmetry preop which is obviously affecting this.

Pre-existing Breast Asymmetry

+1
The asymmetry in your breasts are due to normal pre-existing breast asymmetry.  Your right breast and nipple were lower preoperatively and the postop results are typical and expected. This is normal and not a cause for concern.  Best wishes on your recovery!

Breast shape after 3 weeks

+1

Breast implants often take 3 months or more to look the way that they are going to look. It is more common than not for the implants to look a bit asymmetric after only 3 weeks. Listen to your surgeon and be patient. You will have a much better idea of the final results after another several months.
