Redo breasts augmentation
Thanks for submitting your pictures. From observing your pictures, you appear to have bilateral double bubble (right side worse than left side) as well as upper and medial poles capsule contracture.
To obtain optimal and natural looking breasts, you will need to have inferior capsulorraphy (internal bra) and medial and superior capsulotomy (scar release) . That will result in natural looking soft breasts with nice cleavage and lower fold
Always consult with experience board certified plastic surgeons who do lots of redo breasts augmentation in accredited surgery center for your safety. Check the before and after pictures in the photo gallery, to make sure that they are numerous, consistent and naturally attractive with nice IMF (infra mammary fold) and cleavage.
Best of luck,

From your photos, it appears you have a double bubble on both sides and may also have capsular contracture. I would recommend that you contact your plastic surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time. You should also discuss your goals and expectations for revision surgery.
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!
Hardness after breast augmentation
Is to early to worry about this, you are only 2 weeks post op, is normal to feel this way, breast sides heals different and that's why you are feeling that one is more tender and hard that the other one. Patience is one of the most important factors in achieving the best results in cosmetic surgery. We all want to see the final result as early as possible. Unfortunately, the healing process is complicated and takes time. You cannot fight Mother Nature. The surest way to get a poor result is to undergo revision surgery before your body is ready for additional surgery.
breast augmentations take about six months for the swelling to go down and the breasts to settle and assume their final size and shape.
Please wait until six months post op. Minor asymmetry is normal.
Good luck :)
