The two #breasts commonly heal quite differently. One breast may swell more, feel more uncomfortable, or have a different initial #shape. Healing usually takes 2-3 months but may take up to a full year to see the final result. After complete healing, they will be more similar and natural. You must have patience, but if this causes concern, ask questions of your #boardcertified plastic surgeon.
Thank you for your question and photo. Asymmetry is common during healing. If you notice sudden, increasing swelling or increasing firmness of the right side, then you should let your Plastic Surgeon know right away in case it is related to bleeding inside the pocket. Otherwise, this could be due to different levels of tightness and tension in the breasts because of their different sizes. Usually when breasts drop at different rates they do eventually even out. You will need to wait closer to 6 months to see your final results.

10 days post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about final results with only 10 days post op and its normal that each breast has their on course. In my practice, after performing a breast augmentation I recommend to my patients to limit the movement of the arms for two weeks. After that, you can move your arms taking care and always with common sense.
In this regard, it's not advisable to carry heavy weights to prevent the implant out of position, and allow the formation of the physiological capsule around the implant, also to avoid pain and breast swelling.

Why is my right breast different from my left?
This is why plastic surgeons will always advise patience for the first few months after these procedures. In the meantime, keep in close contact with her plastic surgeon and he/she can assure you that things are proceeding in the right direction.
I hope this info helps!
Best of Luck,
