Should I wait for right implant to settle or do lift surgery on left implant only? (photo)

Not much more change expected
Thanks for your question. It is hard to say from the picture angle exactly how much of a difference there is. 6 months should be enough time if things are stable. There is no "rush" but I can appreciate the frustration of feeling you needed support. If the presence of the implant alone is causing sagging then you either have too big an implant or diminished elasticity. Hopefully your plastic surgeon can discuss these things with you. Best of Luck!
I would suggest for you to follow your PS advice and give it time for them to settle.

Well it has been six months... You need a lifting and other revision surgery NOW! Best to fully understand this surgery...
Uneven breasts at 6 months may be ready for surgical improvement.
Just looking at your photo (not an optimal frontal view) at 6 months, it appears as if you could benefit from a lift on the lower left breast. Are the breast volumes nearly equal? Without an examination, it is not possible to assess the capsules around the implants.
Timing for your surgical care is a matter of judgement. I would not hesitate to correct the uneven breast at this time if this was troubling you. You should discuss your concerns and your options for this revision surgery with your plastic surgeon.
Breast revision options
There are various breast revision options. You and your plastic surgeon will have to evaluate implant position, pocket symmetry, breast issue and areola position.
Once this is done the proper breast revision options can be selected. I suspect a combination of implant pocket and breast tissue modification will be needed.
All the best,
