By your photo, I am guessing your implant position is below your lat flap. At that point your tissues look thinner. As you heal and the scar forms over the next month, it gradually softens over the next 2-3 months. At that time, the areas will soften and improve. Fat grafting can help provide thicker coverage and is covered by insurance plans.
