ASYMMETRY POST OP
Agree with the other Plastic Surgeons
It's too early to make any conclusions as the shape will change over the next 3-6 months. All patients are asymmetric and asymmetry following BA can still be present. Please discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon.
Look at your prep photos well to determine what was there before .
Swelling, some advices:
In my practice, after performing a BA I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Breast Implant Revision Early Results
The pictures you show seem to be very early results. You probably need to wait several months.
For specific questions like this and about your recovery in general, it is best to speak directly with your doctor or doctor’s representative – such as his or her nurse, or the physician on call for the practice.
You will likely get many differing opinions from members of the RealSelf Community, but they have not physically seen or examined you. Nobody should know you or your unique set of circumstances better than your doctor.
If you feel you are not being listened to or you are doubting your doctor’s recommendations, then it is certainly within your rights to seek a second opinion and get the advice from another board certified physician. This should be done through an in-person consultation with a thorough evaluation, including a review of your history, review of all prior treatment and with a physical examination.
Obviously, if you think that you are having a medical emergency or other serious problem, you should call 911 and/or go to your nearest emergency room.

Thanks for your question and photos. It is common for the breast to look different after surgery early on especially if they were different before surgery. IT would help in your assessment to have before surgery photos. I would discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon as they know what you started with and how they corrected you problems. Good Luck and be patient, it early in your recovery period!
All the best,
