Early contracture vs difference in pocket dissection
If this was always the case after surgery, it might be due to asymmetry in the pocket dissection. If you were initially symmetric after surgery and this has been occurring since that time, you could have early capsule contracture and require treatment for that. You should check back with your surgeon.

However it seems as though your plastic surgeon is following you carefully and you need to follow-up with him or her in follow their advice. If it turns out you do have a capsule a capsular release or capsulectomy can be done.
