9 days post op and my left breast seems larger and misshapen compared to my right. Is this normal? (Photo)

As others have stated, contour irregularities and asymmetries can be normal at this point and last a few months. I recommend that you follow up with your Plastic Surgeon in person regarding any concerning changes, and try to hold off evaluating results for at least a few more months.
All the best
9 days post op
You are still very early in you recovery. It will take time for the breasts to settle and for the swelling to decrease. It is not uncommon for the breasts to be asymmetrical at this point. Try not to worry. Continue to follow your surgeons instructions and contact him or her with any concerns. Best of luck.

Right now, you are very early on in the post op recovery period. It will take 3-6 months for you to feel comfortable having implants in your body and for them to settle. This time allows for you to physically and psychologically adapt to your new body image. There are many variables that contribute to a breast augmentation's final result. Preop size and shape, IMF location, location of the implants and type of implant. Patients heal at different rates and each breast will sometimes heal at a different rate. Rest, relax, recover and heal. Please Express your concerns to your surgeon so he/she can examine you at this time. Then reassess final result at 6 months.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
