people who are right-handed, the muscles are more developed on that side so
it’s not uncommon for right implants to drop a bit more slowly. You’re only two
weeks into your recovery, and that’s much too early to start panicking. Keep
following your plastic surgeon’s post-op instructions to the letter, and remember
that your body needs time to relax and let the implant move into its final
placement. This is a process that takes several weeks or more, with your final
results visible at around the six month mark.
This is why I tell all my patients that they will initially be "High, Hard and Ugly."
15 days is too early to start worrying!
Breast implants can take up to three months to settle completely; especially if your implants were placed below the chest muscle or in the sub-pectoral position. In addition to having my patients wear a front closure sport bra following surgery, I provide my breast augmentation patients with an elastic breast band which will help to facilitate the settling process by sitting entirely above the breast implants. Also, it is not uncommon for implants to settle at different rates.
Be patient and if three months later there is no resolution you follow up with your surgeon.
Two weeks postop breast augmentation surgery is too early to determine whether you'll need a revision. Please be patient and follow your doctor's advice.

Both breasts are artificially supported by postoperative swelling in an asymmetrical way. Both should change over time
Needs revision after 3 months healing would be my guess over the internet. Best to discuss with your surgeon in person...
Way too early to tell. Often if right handed the muscle is thicker and holds the implant higher a bit longer then the non dominant side. So please relax, visit with your surgeon and in 3 months lets us know how things are going.
At two weeks post breast augmentation, it is too early to see the final results. Best to give it a few months.
Thank you for your pictures. I think the one picture where you're holding the camera when your right hand makes the that breast look more informed than normal. Your other pictures the asymmetry is a little more subtle. I would keep using the band at your plastic surgeon's urging. Allow three months for the tissues to settle and soften then you can critically evaluate your result to see if a revision is necessary.
I am sorry to hear about your concerns after breast augmentation surgery, but after only 15 days, it is much too early to evaluate the long-term outcome of the procedure performed (and whether or not revisionary breast surgery will be helpful/necessary). At this point, I would suggest that you continue to follow-up with your plastic surgeon and continue to follow his/her instructions. It is not unusual for breast implants to “settle” asymmetrically and it may take several months before the breast implants have reached their final position, in some cases. Best wishes; hopefully you will be pleased with the longer-term outcome of the procedure performed and not require additional surgery.
