Too early to assess results

You're still pretty early on in your recovery. It usually takes about 3-4 months for the implants to settle and your results can be assessed then. Just follow your surgeon's care instructions to facilitate your recovery.

Breast Asymmetry after Breast Augmentation?

+1

Considering that you are only 2 weeks out of your breast augmentation surgery, some degree of breast asymmetry ( including bruising, swelling, and position of breast implants) is to be expected. The best way to rule out complications is close follow up with your plastic surgeon.  He/she is in a much better position to reassure you as opposed to online consultants.

Best wishes for the remainder of your recovery.
