I'm almost 3 weeks post lipo and the two sides are uneven. Will this even out or was an area missed? (Photos)

Swelling After Liposuction
Typically around 90% of the swelling will resolve around 4-6 weeks, but can last up to 6 months. It is not uncommon for swelling to asymmetrical during the healing process. Your skin is still retracting. I recommend giving it more time and consulting your surgeon at six months if this asymmetry is still present at that time.

Uneven Swelling Solution--Add RF treatments, Venus Legacy, Cellutone and hyperbaric oxygen
You will experience swelling, which can be uneven, for several months after your procedure. I recommend adding RF treatments externally like venus legacy, exilis ultra, Vanquish, shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave, hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results.
