Boobs look square?

Drop & Fluff
Thank you for your question. Yes, It is quite common for breasts to have this appearance for a month or so post op because the implant volume is under pressure and displaced up and outward for a time. As well, when the Pectoral muscles swell it will contribute to this top heavy/squared appearance because of the swollen contour of the muscles. Typically this is softened somewhat by 2 months post op and breast implants will be dropping into place. This process can take between 2-6 months to complete.
All the best
Follow-up with your plastic surgeon as he/she will be best able to tell if anything is out of the ordinary.

Why Do My New Boobs Look Square & More Full On Top?
As the skin and muscle stretch out, there is a process facilitated by gravity known as "drop and fluff". I believe this process is not one of implants moving down but fluid in the implants migrating downward with gravity and often with the help of an ace wrap or bando over the upper quadrant of the implant.
As for squareness at the bottom of the implant, one often sees this early after a standard breast lift before the implant has moved down in the middle of the breast lift, giving a more rounded bottom. However, I have never personally seen a square looking breast after just a regular breast augmentation, and therefore I find myself unable to answer that portion of your question.
At this point, I recommend you pose this question to your personal plastic surgeon who I am sure can explain your early post surgical breast appearance.
