Slanted breast 4 months post op. What could be going on? (Photos)

Inframammary incisions may cause noticeble assymetry
Overall, the photos demonstrate an excellent result. The fullness along the fold of the right breast looks like an area of the soft tissue in which the right implant has dropped more than the left. The dissection during placement of the implant under the muscle using the inframmary fold incision may allow this to happen on occassion.
Most breasts are shaped differently. They may have noticeable difference or very subtle ones. Breast augmentation almost always allow the subtlties to become accentuated. It is difficult to tell from the preop photo if there were any.
In some cases capsular contratures may be the cause ,however this may be diagnosed more appropriately on physical exam by your surgeon.

4 months post op, some advices:
Its too early to talk about results.
In my practice, after performing a BA 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.
