Breast augmentation

If the implant is high due to inadequate release of muscle or incomplete descent or capsular contracture, maintaining the submuscular position is reasonable. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast augmentations and breast augmentation revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

With the left breast feeling looser, it follows that the right breast is firmer, and this may be related to a capsular contracture, causing the firmness on that side and adding to the appearance difference. 

This can't be diagnosed just from the posted photo, so a visit to your surgeon is the recommendation. 

All the best.

Hard to see what is going on as you are liftting one arm which makes the implant on that side look higher, as well I would want to see your pre op images to give you a better recommendation

The photo posted doesn't help as your arm is raised.  You need to be examined in person.  See your PS or another BC PS.

Uneven breasts at 3 years may reflect differences in the capsules or pre-surgical asymmetry.

Your photo suggests that your left breast appears lower and it is reported as softer & larger.  The right breast implant may have a firmer capsule than is present on the left.

Based upon a re-evaluation by your plastic surgeon, non-surgical and surgical options to improve the appearance of your breasts could be presented to you.

I think an exam is critical to see why they are different and also to get more information from you.  Then a surgical plan can be decided upon to provide a solution.
