My left breast is very different to my right. Is this normal? (Photo)

The two #breasts commonly heal quite differently. One breast may #swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial #shape. Healing usually takes 2-3 months, but it may take up to a full year to see your final result. It takes time for the skin and muscle to stretch and relax around the new #implant. After complete healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of your #boardcertified plastic surgeon.

19 days post op
Thank you for the question and photos. It does appear that your breasts had different shape/positioning and possible different size before surgery. You can expect to keep your pre op differences with BA using same size implants.
Initially, if the breasts were different volumes, one may look higher or stay tighter, longer due to different surrounding tissue, but they eventually appear more even. I recommend that you wait until 6 months post op, when you are fully healed and settled, to evaluate your results.
All the best
3 weeks post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about results at this time of your post op. In my practice, after performing a Breast Augmentation 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.

Left breast is very differenct
I cannot sure your breasts were same or not before the surgery.
It they were different, they must be different after the surgery, too.
For telling it is normal or not, we have to see the preop photos of you breasts.
Good luck and have a wonderful day.
Asymmetry of breasts
It seems like you are healing well from your breast augmentation.
You are only 19 days post-op; you are still very early in your recovery course. Please allow your implants/breasts settle for next couple months.
You had some asymmetry prior to surgery. Even after implants settle, you will have mild asymmetry of breast shape/size.
If you have any concern, your plastic surgeon will the best resource to answer your questions.
