Is this a botched job?
It is very early to say so,definitely it doesnt appear to be a botched job,i advise you to simply wait and do nothing for atleast 6 months,yes there is a dissimilarity,but nothing to agonize about ,breasts are dynamic and keep changing shape with time and posture,dont be ina hurry and subject yourself to any revision surgery,go back to your PS and discuss with him your concerns,iam sure hell guide you the right way
Asymmetric at 7 Weeks
Thank you for your question. It appears, based on your photos, that the implant on the left has settled lower so far but this may be temporary or due to a difference in breast creases. It is difficult to say at this point and you do not necessarily have a problem because implants can take between 2-6 months to settle. Asymmetric settling isn't uncommon and at 7 weeks it is still early. I recommend that you try to be patient. Share your concerns with your Plastic Surgeon and don't assume there is a problem just yet.
All the best

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. Kind regards
Is this a botched job?
Botched is such an unpleasant word. It suggests incompetence.Even in the hands of the most competent surgeons in the world, outcomes are not as predictable as we would hope. As noted by others, you do have asymmetry. Photos are hard to interpret online but it appears that the crease beneath the left breast is lower than the right.If your research was correct and your surgeon came highly recommended then he will likely work with you to achieve your desired outcome. Speak with him about your concerns. Make a plan with him and move forward. He should be just as interested in you having your best outcome as you are.I hope all goes well at your next visit with your plastic surgeon and you achieve your goals. Good luck.
Botched?, no; Revision?, probably.
I suggest you discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon and he order will undoubtedly address your concerns and answer your questions. If you are unhappy, you will almost certainly require a revision of your left breast possibly with an implant exchange and pocket modification.
Asymmetry can be very challenging to correct and the most important part of the breast that needs to be symmetrical is the upper pole which is visible through bra or bathing suit. Overall perfect symmetry may not be achievable but let your plastic surgeon discuss your options with you.
Best of luck to you.
Concerns after breast augmentation surgery
Best to address your concerns directly with your plastic surgeon; I always suggest patients communicate in a calm/constructive fashion. Avoid utilizing inflammatory terms such as "botched".Is overall good shape Discussing your concerns with your plastic surgeon, preferably in front of a full length mirror, will allow you to determine the best plan to achieve an outcome you will be happier with.
