Are my breasts uneven or do I have to give it more time for dropping? Should I look into a revision now? (Photo)

Asymmetry 9 weeks post-op breast lift plus implants is entirely normal.
There are some things that can be done to help encourage healing to occur along desired patterns, so keep in close contact with your surgeon and follow his/her advice regarding displacement exercises, elastic bandeau use, and/or bra support.
Most asymmetries will improve over time, but absolute symmetry is an unrealistic expectation. But be patient with the process, and the time it takes to achieve your "final" result before asking about revision. Appreciate your surgeon's efforts thus far--you have an excellent result, and perfection is an elusive goal for ALL of us. Best wishes!~ Dr. Tholen
Early Post-operative Asymmetry
Your pictures suggest a relatively good result for someone who's only nine weeks post-op. Under these circumstances, it's important to wait at least six months before considering revisional surgery. In the interim, it's important to be patient and maintain good communication with your plastic surgeon.
Healing after #breastlift and #augmentation surgery
Healing will go on for 2-3 months for the early period. There may be some swelling, bruising, malposition, color differences. Sensation will be abnormal. Scars will be changing.
If you have concerns that something is more unusual, you should contact your PS to discuss these concerns

Asymmetry is normal
Your 8 week result for lift with breast augmentation looks good give it more time.
Early Results May Equalize After Breast Lift With Implants
Yes, you seem to have some early asymmetry but this can change and equalize over time depending on swelling and other factors. I would wait at least 6 months before considering what your final results are going to look like.
Breast Lift with Implants is a good surgery but, in general, the revision rates are slightly higher compared to breast augmentation alone and breast lift alone.
To be sure, return regularly to see your surgeon or see two or more board-certified plastic surgeons in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.
Breast Lift with Implants
Yes you are early in your healing, but that is a good thing. There is still time to modify things. Keep your surgeon in the loop and freely share your concerns. Overall, you look great on front view at rest! So if your right is a little high, obtain an elastic breast band and place the band over the right side and under the left side. Use a safety pin, pinned to your bra strap, on the right to keep the band high enough to "remind" the right implant to keep dropping. Also, give it more time overall. All the best, "Dr. Joe"
