Lots going on here. Could be a fluid collection but what I really believe is the cause of asymmetric implants after breast augmentation early on is the difference in strength of the pec muscles as we all have a stronger side. It take some time for the muscles to relax. If you are concerned see your PS, we always want to make patients happy

This is diffivcult to assess online without pictures and details of procedure. You may require future surgery but for now observe and discuss with your surgeon.

Too Early For Bottoming Out

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Only being seven days out from your surgery means that it is way too early for things sucg as bottoming out to occur.  It is normal for the breasts to heal differently from each other in the first few weeks.  One is always more tender than the other, and usually softens faster then the other side as well.  Just be patient and hang in there.  At the one month mark, most of the changes should  have occurred, and that is when you can get an accurate idea of what the size, shape, and symmerty is going to look like.  I hope this helps.
