Are my breasts ever going to "even out"? Should I have this lift/augmentation redone? Do breasts look infected? (Photo)

1 month post op, some advices:
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 regardsDr. Emmanuel Mallol

Based on your photos, I think it is reasonable for your concerns. It is too early to judge the symmetry of the nipple areolar complex or size of the breasts, but the redness on the breasts is more concerning. Despite likely keflex (cephalexin) antibiotic therapy, the skin still appears red. Please revisit your surgeon and ask him/her to consider a different antibiotic to address this infection. Once infection has been addressed and you have been patient for about 3 months, look critically at your result with your surgeon and decide if revisions are needed. The nipples can easily be addressed with an office based procedure to correct symmetry and hopefully the size will have evened out. Best wishes.
