Double bubble after breast lift and augmentation
Based on your photos, it does appear that the left implant sits a bit below your original fold. This is a set up for double bubble. In mild cases, its not a big deal, but it appears that this may be an issue. Sometimes taping the fold to keep the implant in a higher position may seal that pocket as a capsule forms. If ineffective, a revision may be required. The hard area along your right vertical should not be an issue.

Post-Operative Double Bubble Deformity
Since you're early in the post-operative course and your deformity is relatively mild, conservative management is appropriate. Under these circumstances, the use of an underwire bra and taping of the inframammary fold is appropriate. If the problem is persistent, it's reasonable after six months to proceed with revisional surgery.
In the interim, it's important to be patient and maintain good communication with your plastic surgeon. Your surgeon should be able to outline a treatment plan that addresses your concerns.
