Incision under breast looks odd
This should help. Be patient, these things take time, but definitely communicate with your surgeon.
BA scar worries
Thank you for posting your question, it raises many good points for discussion.
Firstly your scar should improve greatly with the passage of time, and with the improvement in scar appearance there will also be an improvement in breast shape.
Secondly scars run a natural course of maturation, that can take many months to complete, so patience is important.
Thirdly, scar massage and active management will accelerate this natural process.
And finally, if you have any concerns after surgery, then please share them, as you have. Realself provides a wonderful avenue for information, but your plastic surgeon would no doubt wish to hear of your concerns first hand and will be best able to assist you through the process.
All the best,

When concerned about scars
It is very early postop so time will likely result in improvement. I suspect that the appearance of your incision is not a result of abnormal scarring but rather the manner in which the incision was stitched. Sometimes a deep stitch is placed to secure the position of the fold so it does not move. This can result in a retracted appearance that will generally improve with time. As stated by others, discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon.
