Only 3 weeks is too early to see final results. It takes months 6-9 months for everything to settle into the pockets and have and see final results.They will continue to change and improve.

Without some photos, preferably from both before and after surgery it is not possible to express much of an opinion. I can say that at three weeks it is most common to see asymmetry. If you were to post this question with some photos, you are much more likely to get answers specific to your question

Thanks and best wishes.
